With pleasure!

It was during her last tour date on the Blessed Unrest tour in Athens, OH. I saw her on her first tour date in Morgantown, WV, but I didn’t get to meet her then. My boss, who has met a multitude of celebrities, told me the supposed guaranteed way to meet a celebrity after a concert: spot the tour bus and go to it IMMEDIATELY after the singer leaves the stage.

I didn’t attempt it at the Morgantown venue, but when I found out that fans who did wait by her tour bus got to meet her, I told myself I would do it the next time I saw her in concert. I did just that. It was blistering cold, and I was in a skirt, but eventually, someone came out and told us to form a single line and that we could get either a picture with Sara OR an autograph. I chose the picture. She gave me a hug and commented on how cold I was, but it was SO worth the wait. She is shorter than you might think she is! lol :)

“I try to put my money where my mouth is…I try to practice what I preach and my bravery, I think, is about being authentic and honest as much as I possibly can because sometimes that’s really hard. You even find in personal relationships and friendships, you’re like ‘I don’t want to hurt their feelings so i’m not going to tell them what I really think’ but really, honesty is how you get closer to people. So i’m trying. I’m working on it.” - Sara Bareilles {x}
