Sarah McLachlan Has Her Shine On at Santa Barbara Bowl

Sarah McLachlan graced the stage at the Santa Barbara Bowl last week on her Shine On tour. Bringing an air of tranquil, blissful music that could melt mountains, and with her beautiful voice that drew you in to her world, McLachlan made her fans forget any troubles they might have had before the concert started.

A Canadian musician, singer and songwriter known for her emotional ballads and mezzo-soppano vocal range, McLachlan has created sales that have sold more than 40 million albums worldwide.

On May 6, she released her first album of original music in more than four years, titled Shine On. On Wednesday, her tour arrived at the Santa Barbara Bowl.

McLachlan owned the hearts and minds of her audience, while singing many of her old and new hits, such as “Do What You Have To Do,” “Witness,” “Adia” and “I Love You.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
