The singer Sara Bareilles showed proposals by two couples she had especially chosen after a lengthy selection process in her latest song's “I Choose You” video.
Sara Bareilles had quit her band, ended her relationship with her male friend and migrated from LA to somewhere else. But her rather irrational decisions prove that we all need to step out of our comfort zone in order to see any growth in our careers and lives.
Her album The Blessed Unrest garnered two Grammy nominations and had quite a few hit songs in it. But the real magic was wrought by a competition she enacted for the selection of two couples who wanted to propose to each other.
The music video for the song was titled “I Choose You”. Bareilles announced an online contest on March 11. She invited all of her fans to share their "#IChooseYou" story.
"I'm looking for someone planning a proposal to a Sara Bareilles (me!) fan," she wrote. "If you or someone you know is planning a fantastic proposal, I want to help! … The more elaborate and creative the better."
Fans of the star sent in their proposal stories and ultimately two couples were chosen to play a role in the MTV video. The song is about the discovery of a soul mate even at such times when it seems the least possible occurrence.
Matt and Chelsea from LA and Aly and Andrea from Denver were the chosen couples. The music video was meant to be very creative and took quite a lot of talented energy from the couples.
Sara stood before a gray background and sang the song in all its lyrical variety while scenes from the two couples’ planning for proposal were relayed live before everyone. “I Choose You” music video then goes into details regarding the courting and wooing process.
Finally, the couples have their blindfolds removed and say “yes” to each other and it is bliss indeed. The video is very popular on YouTube and has over half a million fans who have viewed it. In fact, it is so much of a tearjerker that it has brought out the inner emotions in many people who have had the chance to see it.
