Sara Bareilles performs “Smile” at the Emmy’s

As you all know, Sara was invited to perform during the “In Memoriam” tribute at the Emmy Awards. We were unsure of the song she would perform. A few hours before the show, we announced she would sing “Smile”, along with Misty Boyce, Cara Fox and Christina Courtin. The arrangement is by Chris Morrissey.

It was absolutely gorgeous, and Sara looked stunning.

    Absolutely breathtaking! Has to be one of my most favorite song of a all time. For Sara to have sung it for the Memorium on the Emmys, brought meaning to how life is so precious. Written by Charlie Chaplin, a genius of comedy, and sung by by Sara, so eloquently, demonstrates the beauty of all remembered and their body of work that they have left behind. Thank you, Sara, for your performance. Angels Forever on Your Shoulders

    This was the most moving performance I have ever witnessed. I caught it live and have been looking for it ever since. This is the only complete performance I have found on the Internet. When & where can I buy it?!
