Music Mondays: Sara Bareilles

Sara'��s ode to self-acceptance, "��Beautiful Girl,"�� was inspired by her own adolescent struggle with body image issues. In this concert video filmed at the Granada Theatre in Santa Barbara last month, the singer/songwriter explains how she felt pressure growing up and how it took her 32 years to come to terms with it. "We get taught strange things especially as young women; it's really confusing," she declares onstage.

Sara literally burst onto the music scene with her infectious first single, "Love Song" back in 2007. Her platinum follow-up, Kaleidoscope Heart, also produced a hit, Grammy-nominated track, "King of Anything." What'��s even more amazing is that Sara has no formal training. She's originally from Eureka, CA and relocated to Los Angeles to attend UCLA�s Communication Studies program. During her years at UCLA, Sara performed with an a cappella group, making her the perfect addition to the judging panel on NBC'��s The Sing-Off.
