The Close To Home playlist this week features one of my favourite ‘girl power’ songs – Brave by the oh-so-talented Sara Bareilles.

There’s something about this song that really inspires me!

If you’re not familiar with Sara’s music do yourself a favour and spend an afternoon with one of her albums – Little Voice, Kaleidoscope Heart or her most recent, The Blessed Unrest.

Brave is all about facing your fears, speaking up for  yourself and being honest. I think we could all do a lot more of that! In Chapter 10 Charlie is faced with three very different situations requiring her to be brave in different ways.

The film clip is very cute – hope you enjoy it!
