In the interview Sara talked about her new single, “I Choose You” and how she came up with the unique concept for the video. “I have to give the credit to my manager Brandon. We were sitting over dinner and we were talking about the video and trying to come up with a concept… Brandon came up with the idea of us actually facilitating real engagements.”
Adding, “It was really fun to do and fun to facilitate, and a lot of work. Ultimately I’m really happy with it.”
Sara then discussed her motivation behind the song “Brave”. “‘Brave’ was inspired by a good friend of mine who was actually struggling with coming out as an adult… It really felt very timely in terms of addressing this conceptually in a song. At this time there is so muchdialog about gay marriage and about bullying and acceptance. It felt like a really good time to kind of voice my opinion,” Sara said.
On her upcoming tour, “Go big or go home on this tour…I’m bringing out some amazing artists with me to open up the shows…It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Sara also revealed her favorite exotic fruit, her celebrity crush over the age of 70, her favorite dinosaur, whether or not she believes in big foot, and what she likes to do in her free time. Hear it all in the interview above.
