Music / Sara Bareilles

I think the real question is, does everyone who knows me still think I'm strange? And the answer is yes. I don't feel famous except every once in a while. I'm glad I don't. I don't like it very much.

Sara Beth Bareilles (born December 7, 1979) is a pop singer-songwriter best known for her 2007 hit single "Love Song". Since hitting the mainstream in 2007 she's struggled to find quite as much success as with her debut single, but a dedicated fanbase and a collection of irresistible tracks has kept her from maintaining a "One-Hit Wonder" status. Currently she has three Grammy nominations (two for "Love Song" and one for "King of Anything"), has played for the President and his family twice, and has little trouble selling out venues across the globe.

Sara has been reminding people that she exists lately with hit singles "King of Anything," "Uncharted," and now "Brave," proving that maybe singer-songwriters have some staying power in the industry after all.

Bareilles, an alumna of the a cappella group UCLA Awaken, also served as a judge on the third season of NBC's The Sing-Off, along with Ben Folds and Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men.
