Singer/Songwriter Sara Bareilles Helps Celebrate National Train Day

May 7, 2008

Singer/Songwriter Sara Bareilles will perform a free concert at Washington DC's Union Station this Saturday (May 10) to help mark Amtrak's National Train Day. Bareilles currently has a massive hit with "Love Song," a song written about how much she didn't want to placate the suits at her label by writing a love song for Little Voice, her major label debut.

National Train Day culminates 6 weeks of celebrations meant to raise awareness of passenger rail travel across the U.S. On May 10, 1869, the "golden spike" was driven into the final tie in Promontory Summit, Utah, that joined 1,776 miles of the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railways, creating the country's first transcontinental railroad - tying together the East and West Coasts.
