Sara Bareilles News, Pictures, and Videos
We are sending our well wishes to Sara Bareilles!
The 36-year-old singer and Waitress composer revealed that she’s currently recovering from surgery.
“So I have been healing from a minor surgery removing a fibroid on my uterus,” Sara wrote on Instagram with some photos of her in a hospital gown. “Well, surgery sucks but helpers and families are amazing, nurses are angels, and doctors are wizards.”
Sara continued, “In the silence and solitude of the simple task of my body seeking it’s healed state, I have become vigilant about what I am intaking. Physically and metaphorically. Be careful about how much negativity and noise you heap on your plate.”

So I have been healing from a minor surgery removing a fibroid on my uterus. (For those of you who don't like over-sharers, you came to the wrong canteen! Two doors down…great daiquiris. 👍🏼) Well, surgery sucks but helpers and families are amazing, nurses are angels, and doctors are wizards. In the silence and solitude of the simple task of my body seeking it's healed state, I have become vigilant about what I am intaking. Physically and metaphorically. Be careful about how much negativity and noise you heap on your plate. It comes in abundance, but there are other beautiful things at the buffet. The slow pace of my recovery has simplified my world in a way, and I am reminded to absolutely acknowledge the chaos of a very strange/surreal time in our country and on our beloved planet, but ALSO remember to come back into the room I'm actually sitting in. Celebrate what is good about that too. I will continue to mend and hopefully return with more patience and compassion and knowledge of Game of Thrones. Hope this finds you seeking some joy or handing some out to somebody else. We could all use a slice of that. 😘 Nothin' but love, y'all. *please note I am eating a turkey sandwich on heavy painkillers in the lower right hand picture. Sassy and sedated! Ya welcome.

Sara Bareilles pre-records her performance for Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular, which is set to air on NBC on Monday (July 4).
The 36-year-old Grammy and Tony-nominated singer will be recreating the Broadway for Orlando single “What the World Needs Now is Love” for the special.
Sara, along with many of Broadway’s greats, recorded the song as a charity single following the tragic shooting in Orlando last month.
The 36-year-old singer wrote the music and lyrics for the new musical and she joined star Jessie Mueller to sing the show’s signature song “She Used to Be Mine.”
