IT WAS PHENOMENAL. Sara was so adorable and funny, and her voice. If you can believe it, she sounds even more beautiful live.
She sang ALL of my favourite songs, and she never told us what song she was going to play next, just went over to the instrument (she alternated between acoustic guitar to piano to ukelele to electric guitar) and played the first notes and boy, did i scream when I heard any of my favourite songs.
I can’t remember all of them, but she definitely sang:
Uncharted, Love on the Rocks, December, Hercules, Chasing the Sun, Chandelier (Sia cover), Manhattan, Love Song, Little Black Dress, King of Anything, I Choose You, Sweet as Whole, Brave & Gravity.
I need to tell you about Sweet as Whole. If you don’t know about this song, please go listen to it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IcqRbPk_bk
Now, imagine an entire auditorium scream-singing it with Sara and her band. I don’t think I’ll have many moments where I will ever feel as happy as I did when we sang “That guy’s an ASSHOLE, that girl’s a BITCH”, and “FUCK THAT GUY, HE’S JUST AN ASSHOOOOOOOOOLE”.
And just before Sara sang “I Choose You”, there was a marriage proposal. The lady said yes and everyone just lost it.
I managed to buy some merch! I bought a signed CD and a nifty lil’ keyring with Sara’s name on it.
I couldn’t afford anything else.
Today was her last day of tour, and I was strangely proud that her last stop was Singapore, out of all the places in the world.
I’m so happy that I decided to go all out and splurge on a floor seat, I definitely don’t regret being so close to my favourite singer. My expensive ticket is worth the three gruelling weeks of work I’m enduring now as a nurse assistant (sick people are so fun to be around).
Here’s a photo I just took with the signed CD i’m sorry i just got back and i’m gonna hit the hay soon but LOOK.
