kaleidoscope heart.

in Grand Rapids

Last night, I had the opportunity to see Sara Bareilles’ Kaleidoscope Heart tour as it came through Fredrik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids.  Andrea came with me and we had such fun!

One of Sara’s band memebers, Javier Dunn, was the opening act.  He was great!  A singer/songwriter with a very mellow sound.

Let’s be real though, I wasn’t there for Javier as attractive talented as he may be.  I was SUPER excited for Sara to take the stage!  She opened the show with Uncharted.

Have you seen the video for this song?  Love it. Sara got a bunch of her musician friends to play along in the video. So fun.

Despite recovering from illness, Sara sounded fantastic.  She was really high energy, joking about making mistakes during the show, despite being professionals.  There were a couple points she forgot the lyrics and started to transition into the wrong song.  I found it endearing, especially because she could own up to the fact she messed up.  Keep it real.

Later on in the show, she and the band had a little folksy jam session.

For the encore, Sara did a stunningly beautiful a capella rendition of Gravity.  She also did a new song, Beautiful Girls, written to encourage young women to have self-confidence and see themselves as beautiful.

 

Love you, Sara!  You’re fabulous!
