I’m still listening t0 Sarah Brightman with an occasional counter-balance from Tracy Chapman. I found a couple of videos of Sarah Brightman on the Martha Stewart show from the early part of this year when she was promoting Symphony. I think they’re hilarious because Sarah is being her very professional gracious public self and Martha is being her dominatrix self. Have a look:

I’ve noticed people seem to love or hate Sarah Brightman. I really love her work. I think she’s best with a light classical show tune. When she sings out in her mid range, it’s quite spectacular. Some of her albums seem a little over-produced and I do wish that I could sing along when I listen to her in the car but my voice will never reach that high. That’s the intro.
Since I’ve been in this mood lately while listening to her new album, Symphony, I found a video where you can see her without the elaborate theatrical make-up that is something of a trademark for her. It’s very unusual to see someone like Sarah Brightman without her make-up. Have a look:
She seems to be a very very smart and extremely hard working person. Even if you are not a fan of her music, you have to concede that. I don’t know how she has the energy to maintain her grueling tour schedule. It’s amazing. I have noticed that she’s starting to receive writing credits for some of the music. That’s good because that’s the kind of money that keeps on coming year after year.
Of course you can never know a celebrity by watching their work but you can’t help imagining what they’re like. I imagine Sarah Brightman to be a smart woman who knows her market and, in private, a very fun loving and caring friend. I’ll never know if I’m right and that’s what’s great about entertainers. You can imagine them to be whatever you want. I think I can be sure of one thing: Coffee is Sarah Brightman’s best friend.
The new album, Symphony, is superb. Do Sarah a favor and actually go to a store and buy it. It’s like a gift to charity. I think she probably helps to support an army of people.
