TAYLOR SWIFT, in LA, brought SARA BAREILLES on stage during her show in LA last night to perform this ROUSING version of BAREILLES song, BRAVE!
BAREILLES has garnered massive adult airplay on adult stations with the song, which she reportedly penned for a friend who was struggling with his sexual identity... and his desire to be free from repressing who he was in the eyes of the world. The song is currently being worked to the more mainstream pop radio stations in the US... that is, radio stations which aren't typically afraid to play music of the hip hop and urban crossover pursuasion.
Oh, the labels we place on things. Who defines what's POPULAR to an individual, anyway?
It's a safe bet that this song will be on SWIFT'S RED TOUR: LIVE CD which will no doubt be made available right around the holidays in the US and around the world...
... 'cause that's what you do.
