Help a Friend, Start a Revolution

The Apple TV+ original series Little Voice is loosely based on the experiences of singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles during her early 20s.

In the show, the protagonist’s roommate and best friend struggle to talk to her family about her sexuality due to fears of disapproval and self-loathing.

During a concert performing songs from her musical Waitress, Sara explained the story behind her hit song “Brave.” She wrote the lyrics as a love letter to a friend who was grappling with coming out, much like the character in her television series.
