L.A. concertgoers were treated to special surprise courtesy of Taylor Swift. The multi-award winning singer-songwriter brought former Sing Off judge Sara Bareilles. Bareilles came out on stage as a special guest to perform a duet on the hit song “Brave.”
“There’s a song that came out a few months ago, and I listened to it every single time I had a bad self-esteem day—-which is a lot.” Swift told her fans at Los Angeles Staples Center.
“This song is so beautifully written; it’s so original. It’s something I’ve listened to hundreds and hundreds of times, by an artist who I absolutely adore, a singer-songwriter who’s so incredible talented…it’s ridiculous.”
The LA crowd roared as they performed Bareilles’ song from her Blessed Unrest album. Sara Barreilles tweeted thanking Swift and her fans for the reception she received at the concert.
Thank you for the sparkle, the screaming, the twinkle, the dreaming, and most of all the pep talk @taylorswift13. Your fans are amazing!— Sara Bareilles (@SaraBareilles)
Barreilles is no stranger to media attention recently as The New York Daily News, The Huffington Post and The Associated News all reporting the story regarding Katy Perry’s apparent plagiarism with her new single “Roar”.
However the Grammy nominated artist simply responded to the claims with this simple tweet.
All love, everybody. All love. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤— Sara Bareilles (@SaraBareilles)
