Sara Bareilles Set To Play LGBT Democratic Fundraiser In New York
On May 29, Sara Bareilles will join Michelle Obama in New York City for a fundraising event benefiting the Democratic National Committee.
Bareilles will perform her latest single, “Brave,” at the fundraiser, which is hosed by the LGBT Leadership Council, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Bareilles has said that the song off her upcoming album, The Blessed Unrest (out June 23), was written for a friend who was struggling to come out. The track has become an anthem for LGBT teens, along with anyone else who needs a little encouragement speaking up.
The singer–who finishes up her first solo tour in New York on May 23–will be joined by NBA star Jason Collins, who made news last month after becoming the first basketball star to reveal he was gay while still playing the game.
Tickets for the event range from $1,250 to $32,400 apiece.
