Really Good Goodbye
It's been a terrific couple of years for singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles. She wrote the score to the hit Broadway musical Waitress -- and then later replaced the star and took over the lead. She played 'Mary Magdalen' in the live TV production of Jesus Christ Superstar. And recently guest-hosted Saturday Night Live.
This comes before that. It's the end of her 2013 concert in Atlanta, singing her rendition of Elton John and Bernie Taupin's song, "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road." I always love when a performer creates their own version of a song that's so deeply iconic, yet is able to retain the core of the original. To me, this is that. It's a fascinating, unique performance -- and beautifully filmed so that you can see how moved the audience is.
