Sara Bareilles gets Inside the Mind of Barack Obama re: Donald Trump, Leslie Odom Jr. Sings It

This is songwriting.  Sara Bareilles is quickly becoming one of the greatest songwriters of our time, with hits like “Brave”, “Love Song”, and her most recent album, What’s Inside:  Songs From a Waitress featuring the hits “She Used To Be Mine”, and “Door Number Three”, and my favorite “Bad Idea” with Jason Mraz.

For This American Life, she was tasked with writing a song from the perspective of Barack Obama about the current election and Donald Trump, specifically, what he may be thinking but unable to say publicly, a real look inside.  Out came “Seriously”.  Tony award winning performer Leslie Odom, Jr. brings it to life perfectly.

You need to hear this.
