“Meeting someone like Joshua puts all sorts of things in perspective and really, it highlights and showcases what music – and making music, and connecting with people through music is all about.”

These were Sara Bareilles’ words of wonderment and admiration upon meeting brave little warrior Joshua Chambers over the weekend. At 4-years old, Joshua is an energetic, sweet, and outgoing kid whose story is something truly remarkable and merits him of being “the bravest of the brave“, having been diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) early this year. Since then, he has been undergoing treatment and facing his battle with an incredibly headstrong and positive attitude that you can’t help but admire. He adopted the motto “Be Brave and even found inspiration in Sara’s anthemic song.

“One of his first hospitalizations, we heard the song (Brave) and we heard it in the hospital and he goes ‘Look Mommy, she’s singing about me’, recalls Joshua’s mom, Mina Chambers.

Joshua had the incredible opportunity of meeting Sara and even singing his theme song at her House of Blues concert last Sunday! It was a really special moment as Sara introduced him to the audience  and Joshua fearlessly “sang his 4-year old butt off.” He even gave Sara some gifts: a wrist band with his motto, and a “Keep Calm and be Brave” shirt – super cool! See the video of their adorable duet below:

“There’s a very, very special brand new friend of mine who’s come to the show tonight. You guys are going to fall in love with him the way that I did.”

Taking the stage with his spunky and adorable smile. Look at our little guy just flooring it with Sara!

Joshua’s story and bravery caught the attention of people and social media and he was even featured on Fox Orlando’s news program. Watch it here :

“Josh is one of the bravest little angels I’ve ever met in my whole life.”

Meeting Joshua was undeniably a very endearing and empowering moment for Sara (and surely for Josh and his family as well). It is amazing to see music connect to people, especially the song Brave, which since its release has taken a life of its own and speaking multitudes of inspiration for a lot of people in many ways.

“S” is for spirited and stout of heart

You go, Joshua! Thank you for bringing awareness to childhood cancer and showing us that the biggest “BRAVE” can sometimes come from the littlest warrior.

Hola! This weekend has certainly been full of love, celebration, and freakout parties for us Sara Bees!

Totally understandable if you guys are still calming down from hyperventilations in light of Sara’s recent platinum certification for Brave, her two nominations for the 56th GRAMMYs (officially making her a 5x Nominee), and our queen’s birfday.

Speaking of #SaraBDay, here are some bits and pieces of her birthday show at The Paramount:

Some time on the encore, the fans started chanting “ALBUM OF THE YEAR!” and then sang her a happy birthday. There is our very own Jen Webb handing our birthday girl the hat and the card signed by SaraBFans on the line and online! Thanks, Jen!

“If you take your fear and mash it into something that’s actually useful, then it doesn’t feel like it wins.” – Sara Bareilles

 

Hosted by opera star Renée Fleming,  the American Voices festival truly proved to be a remarkable event held at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts over the weekend. The spectacle featured some of the most talented singer-songwriter virtuosos today, including our very own and very splendid Sara Bareilles and master musician Ben Folds.

“But…but. I love them too!!!!! #joshandben” – @sarabareilles

The highlight of the festival is an all-star concert featuring an amazing lineup of artists backed by the National Symphony Orchestra. Sara and Ben performed a duet and graced the stage together with Renée Fleming, Sutton Foster, Josh Groban, Alison Krauss, and Dianne Reeves, among others. Read an awesome review of the concert here.

 

Sara and Ben also had the opportunity to mentor and coach a few pre-selected young talents, all of whom are literally mind blowing! The Pop/Rock Master Session was insightful, inspiring, and charming both for the audience and artists, as well as Sara and Ben themselves! It was fun seeing these two be their amazing yet adorable selves sharing intuitive and sharp-witted (yet encouraging) feedback along with a few quirky banters.

 

(For those of you wondering, Sara will not be part of the upcoming The Sing-Off season. Unfortunate sigh, but here’s to hoping she will at least be a guest judge or performer!)

 

View the session in its entirety here or watch the post-session Q and A below:

 

Stay tuned for updates on Sara’s performance which will be featured on a special PBS documentary

about the festival coming on 2014!
