Sara Bareilles & Carole King Grammys Performance Unites Generations With 'Beautiful' And 'Brave'

Posted: Updated:

Sara Bareilles teamed up with veteran singer Carole King for a performance at the 56th annual Grammy Awards. The duo took the stage at Los Angeles' Staples Center where the awards show was held, performing King's "Beautiful" and Bareilles' "Brave."

Bareilles was up for two major awards at the show: Album of the Year, for her latest project, "The Blessed Unrest," and Best Pop Solo Performance, for her hit single, "Brave." King was honored at the Grammys as the MusiCares Person of the Year for her extensive charity work and her musical career.

Bareilles, 26, has been nominated for Grammys in the past, receiving nods for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 2009 and 2011 for her singles "Love Song" and "King of Anything," respectively.

The "Brave" singer wasn't the only big name to perform at the LL Cool J-hosted show. Other performers included Paul McCartney, Beyonce and P!nk.
