‘This American Life’ …. “Imagine President Obama’s thoughts on the election and PEOTUS …. “!!

IN A WORLD WITHOUT POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

In a world ‘governed’ by the ability to express personal thoughts without the constraints of being the President of the United States.

Just imagine if President Obama was able to say what he really thinks!

For now we just imagine what President Barak Obama might be thinking about Donald Trump and the current election.

Perfect lyrics, in my humble opinion!

A recent episode of This American Life featured a song written by Sara Bareilles and sung by Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr. imagining what President Barak Obama might be thinking about Donald Trump and the current election.

Now, there’s a video to accompany it. 

The four minute visual shows Odom Jr. in the studio with a band, delivering and impassioned performance as the lyrics roll out at the bottom of the screen.

In the song, Odom Jr. sings, Bareilles’ poetic verse,

“One man rewriting the book on bad behavior/ Maybe cheats the neighbors/ Feels they get what they pay for/ We can’t pat him on the back and send him on through/ No man’s ignorance will ever be his virtue/ Is this the best we can be?

Seriously?”

Sara Bareilles commends Calysta Bevier’s ‘Brave’ cover

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:

be brave.

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.

At the end of the day …. “Brave” … by Sara Barielles

There are days when you think the battle is over.

Days when you think you can’t go on with your life, You don’t feel your worth, you feel less than. It’s at that time when you have to dig deep and muster every ounce of power you have left. You need to face reality as is … and most of all accept yourself for who you are.

If you don’t accept yourself as you are, how can you expect others to accept you?

You have to be kind and gentle with yourself.

YOU HAVE TO BE BRAVE!!

Brave” is a song by Sara Bareilles, taken from her fourth studio album, The Blessed Unrest (2013).

The song was co-written by Bareilles and Jack Antonoff from the band fun., as the singer was inspired from the struggles that a close friend dealt with in regards to coming out.

Bareilles requested Mark Endert to produce it with the explicit goal of radio airplay. “Brave” was released worldwide through digital download on April 23, 2013 as the lead single from the album, through Epic Records.

“Brave”

You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
Or you can start speaking up
Image
Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
When they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you
Image
Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be braveWith what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
Image
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave
Image
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave
Everybody’s been there,
Everybody’s been stared down by the enemy
Fallen for the fear
Fear
And done some disappearing,
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, just stop holding your tongue
Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is
Image
Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
And since your history of silence
Won’t do you any good,
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don’t you tell them the truth?
Image
Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out

I wanna see you be brave
I just wanna see you
