CALY COVERS ‘BRAVE’
‘America’s Got Talent’
Caly’s story continues to unfold.
She’s in total remission from her ovarian cancer.
She’s following her dream to sing.
Quite the remarkable lady.
Sara Bareilles commends Calysta Bevier’s ‘Brave’ cover
Aug 3, 2016
Grammy and Tony Award-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles shared some big Twitter love for 16-year-old “America’s Got Talent” contender Calysta Bevier after her emotional, inspirational cover of “Brave” during last night’s Quarterfinals live performances.
Bevier entered the round as Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer winner and she didn’t fail to disappoint Cowell, the audience and Bareilles herself who tweeted a clip of Bevier singing the song, captioned with three winking, kiss-blowing emojis.
How cool is that?
Cowell clapped longer than any of the other three judges and then told her,
“I’ve never felt so nervous during one of these performances because I just wanted this to happen for you Calysta. From the very first time we met you and I watched the clip back and I said that you’re special and you got the Golden Buzzer, I’m so happy. You’re more than a great artist Calysta. You’re a very special person and you really truly are an inspiration.”
The iconic producer summed up the 16-year-old cancer survivor perfectly.
Bevier used music to get her through a very frightening and difficult illness.
Her “Fight Song” AGT audition captured America’s heart and prompted Simon Cowell to press the Golden Buzzer. She returned to the Quarterfinals stage to deliver another important message:
Her song choice was brilliant and couldn’t come at a more poignant time for our country. We’ve sustained tremendous losses in Orlando due to two senseless acts of gun violence. The Pulse nightclub victims lost their lives and “Voice” runner-up Christina Grimmie was murdered by a crazed fan.
The first attack was aimed at members of the LGBTQ community and Bareilles co-wrote the song “Brave” with Jack Antonoff of fun for a close friend who struggled with coming out.
‘Brave’ became a sort of civil rights anthem that was nominated for a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Performance in 2014.
