Sara Bareilles

Singer-songwriter Sara Beth Bareilles was born on December 7, 1979, in Eureka, California, to Paul Bareilles, an insurance adjuster and logger, and his wife, Bonnie. The youngest of three girls, childhood was not always easy for Bareilles. "I grew up a fat girl," she later recalled. "I had to change schools at one point because the kids were so mean to me. I still often feel I just don't want anyone to notice anything about me." [+]
