Sarah McLachlan checked in with fans on her official web site on Sunday (May 13), wishing a Happy Mothers Day! The 44-year-old singer songwriter, who herself is a mother with two daughters (Ann Sushil Sood and Taja Summer Sood), writes:
Happy Mothers Day! Being a mother is as beautiful and rewarding as it is painful and devastating. It is the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Here’s to being kind to ourselves and giving ourselves a hug and a pat on the back for doing the best we can in the hardest job there ever was… This morning, my daughters woke me with hot coffee and a bubble bath, then gave me beautiful hand made cards and diamond heart earrings from Claires that they bought themselves. These are sweet moments and I cherish them with all my heart…I hope all you mothers are having a wonderful day…. xoxo Sarah
Sarah McLachlan spoke with Spinner about divorcing her drummer Ashwin Sood in 2008, which is something she’s able to laugh about now. “Yeah, the marriage part didn’t quite work out,” the singer said. “Apparently that’s a bit of an epidemic, so I just make light of it.”
Marie Digby’s latest cover song is ‘Building A Mystery’ by Sarah McLachlan, done in tribute to the Lilith founder after Marie signed on to report from the 2010 Lilith Tour for ABC. “I will be traveling and reporting from across the country directly from the Lilith Tour,” Digby writes. “Fans will be able to experience Lilith through my home videos from the road as well as my interaction with fans and artists. In addition, I am performing a special acoustic set each night of the tour from the ABC Music Lounge.” The U.S. Lilith Tour kicks off on July 2nd and ends on August 16th. Watch it via YouTube below.

Singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan tells The New York Daily News while she and her Lilith Fair colleagues can’t compete with stars like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera for radio play, she has no hard feelings towards the pop crowd. “I believe music is cyclical,” she says. “I also believe there’s a place for everybody, in my naïve, hippie fantasy world that I live in. Music is so subjective and there’s a lot of people that love all different kinds. Hell, I’m guilty of loving some *NSYNC songs, embarrassingly enough. And that Justin [Timberlake] is hot!”
