Video: Dear Sara – Fan Questions For Sara Barielles
♪ It's a bad idea, me and you ♪ ♪ It's a bad idea, me and you ♪ ♪ I've never known anything so true ♪ – The radius around Electric Lady Studios is where I spent so much time when I first moved here. So I have a lot of really fond memories of what it felt like to be recording music. And the piano in Electric Lady, the Yamaha is…we have a love affair. I just… I don't know what it is. Pianos have souls and there's just something about that particular piano that I really, really love. My meditation practice, it's good for me.
It's good for me to do that and I don't do it all the time. When I am doing it well, it's just a little bit of time in the mornings to just sit and reflect and be quiet, and just be with your thoughts. And I think it makes a huge difference in my ability to sort of be in the world and not have rage. It's probably not the craziest thing I've ever heard from a fan but I was doing these questions to audience members and I remember one of them writing in, "I really want to come to a show of yours in California. When are you going to do a show in California?" And it was literally at a show in California. I'm like, "You're standing in a show right now. I'm worried about you." I've been asked to carry someone's baby. I've been asked to do a lot of weddings, both like officiate them and sing at them.
Lots of people want to be my best friend, which I think is hilarious. Yeah, it's funny. People want all sorts of things. Well I follow Tegan and Sara and they almost exclusively post about their cat. Well, it's Sara's cat. It's like almost only Sara's cats, which at first I was like, "Are you ever going to post anything else?" But it's been going on for such a long time now that it's like actually really enjoyable. It's like I'm only going to ever see the cat. It's a huge honor. I am really passionate about young women and wanting to encourage more ways of giving ourselves positive messages. And I have young nieces and I have a younger sister and I think about them all the time and how they're growing up in the world. And I want to use what I do professionally and personally to instill a sense of confidence in young women.
I think there's a lot going on outside. ♪ …see this through… ♪ Hey this is Sara Bareilles and you're watching Baeble Music..
