Sara Bareilles Inspired After Sitting Next To Michelle Obama

Sara Bareilles outside

checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@sarabareilles) on Saturday (September 26), discussing her experience attending the G-20 Pittsburgh summit last week, where she got a chance to sit next to First Lady Michelle Obama. The singer songwriter tells readers:

I couldn’t believe they said I would be at her table, but then they said I’d be right next to her… oh em gee 20. She is so kind and warm and I literally watched her put everyone in the room at ease, myself included. Her grace is effortless, and she made me feel welcomed as a guest and not a tag along. (although I’d have settled for tag along) Being in the company of all these incredible women was a peek into a world that I’ve never seen before, and it was fascinating. Differences of opinion or policy aside, it’s a group of women who share a very unique experience as First Ladies. Its not an easy position to be in, and they seem to do it with such poise and dignity. I felt like I got to see that they have frustrations and aspirations and faults like every last one of us.

For me, they all became human.

I was deeply inspired by that.

My gratitude goes out to every last person that made this day possible. I will most definitely never forget this experience.

And to Mrs. Obama, you are my hero.

    Michelle Obama is very charismatic just like her husband and it is the reason why I like her. I also feel that she could connect with people more easily than any other first ladies.
