Brandy

Listen to Brandy Cover Sara Bareilles’ ‘Brave’

Brandy is “Brave.” The R&B songstress starts off 2018 on an empowering note with her cover of Sara Bareilles’ 2013 hit “Brave.”

Her abridged version, which clocks in just under 80 seconds, finds the “Vocal Bible” belting out the inspirational lyrics over piano keys. “You can be amazing / You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug / You can be the outcast / Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love,” she sings.

She dedicated the song to her fans, writing, “For my beautiful fans, be #Brave.”

In addition to recording new music, the former “Moesha” star is set to return to television in a recurring role on Fox’s hit music drama “Star.” She will play Cassie, the daughter of Christine Brown (Patti LaBelle) and younger sister of Carlotta Brown (Queen Latifah), on Lee Daniels’ series, which returns this spring.
