Tegan and Sara Star Played Hand In Sara Bareilles 'Brave' Hit

(Radio.com) If Sara Bareilles ends up winning the Best Pop Solo Performance GRAMMY for "Brave," she owes Sara Quin an Edible Arrangement or at least a thank you card.

Quin, one half of twin sister duo Tegan and Sara, suggested Bareilles team up with fun.'s Jack Antonoff, assuming the two would hit it off. She was right.

"He's the most incredible human," Bareilles said of Antonoff, her "Brave" co-writer, in an interview with Radio.com. "He's so inspiring, so funny, so dear and sweet and charming and talented."

The first time the two sat down to write together, Antonoff played a few tracks that he had been working on, one of them being the instrumental for "Brave." The duo then penned the lyrics, which were written for one of Bareilles' friends who was struggling to come out to his family. more on this story
