Sara Bareilles: ‘I Choose You’ Video Features ProposalsBy: Kimberly Ripley - May 7, 2014
Sara Bareilles has a new music video that premiered on Wednesday. Called I Choose You, it features two real life marriage proposals.
Bareilles shared some information about a contest she sponsored back in March.
“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.”
She asked for people to send in their #IChooseYou stories. Two couples were chosen as winners. Sara Bareilles and her team chose Matt and Chelsea from Los Angeles and Aly and Andrea from Denver. In the music video Sara sings I Choose You in front of a gray backdrop while video clips are shown of the two couples and the processes leading up to their proposals. As the song changes to its bridge Matt and Aly are seen walking their significant others to the areas they chose to pop the question.
Matt chose a secluded environment with no one there but him and Chelsea. Aly brings Andrea into a backyard, where their family members and friends await them.
In case you’re wondering, both Chelsea and Andrea said yes when their significant others proposed.
“So excited to reveal the I Choose You video!” Bareilles posted on Monday along with a link to the final piece. “Real engagements, real people. I’m so grateful.”
I Choose You already has more than half a million YouTube views as well as lots of wonderful comments.
Sara Bareilles just announced her summer concert tour which kicks off on July 10th in Chicago and wraps up on August 14th in Berkeley, California. Called her “Little Black Dress” tour, she is sure to perform to lots of audience love when she sings I Choose You.
