Brave by Sara Bareilles

This week’s Song of the Week was recommended by MIA Founder Robert Whitaker: “Watching this video fills me with joy every time. It’s such a celebration of the freedom of “non-conformity”. I like to remember these lyrics too:

“Maybe there is a way out of the cage you’re in;
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in.”

A perfect way to think of future possibilities.”

-Robert Whitaker
