Truly, Truly, Truly Bareilles

Sara B. brought her A-game to the Newport Music Hall in Columbus, Ohio this week, putting on one of the most phenomenal performances I've seen during my prestigious concert-going side career. It was in fact the 12th time I'd seen Sara in concert, either as a superstar headliner or as, in the mid-2000s, an opening act for an opening act. She's surely come a long way; in particular, her stage presence and overall concert production have grown by leaps and bounds, even in the past few months. I'm truly, truly honored to be a superfan as she continues building her lifelong music career.
