Thank you to everyone who submitted questions for Sarah, she has chosen some of her favourites and you can read her answers below
If you weren't chosen this time don't worry, there will be another chance to submit questions this week so get thinking and stay tuned.

Kate Wagner – If you were to encounter an extraterrestrial being during your journey into space, which song would you choose to sing to them that would best convey who you are and who we are without the benefit of a common language?

Sarah – Hi Kate – Here is an amazing piece of music and video by Fat Boy Slim that would be perfect to share with them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ub747pprmJ8


Courtney Poole – Hi Sarah, Have you considered of writing a biography in the future? 

Sarah – Dear Courtney – Yes I would like to do an autobiography. Its always a difficult call to make because obviously you know as your life comprises of wonderful scenarios which include other peoples lives and what happens –  I wouldn't necessarily want to give their stories as well as it might not be appropriate, so I have always been very careful about this – I have been very lucky in that most scenarios with human beings in my life especially in the world I live, have been incredibly positive…so there would not be anything negative to tell, but I am just very aware that other people might not want their actions talked about, which is why I have not written one so far.


Sheri Olivieri – I'm not sure if this has ever been addressed but….do you sing in the shower and whilst working around the house? if i could sing like you (and i often try, without any success) i'd be singing from the time i got up in the morning..till i went to bed at night. I am a big fan also, Sarah.

Sarah – Hi Sheri – yes I love to sing in the shower, and actually most people do – even if they can't sing very well. The reason for this is because hot or cold water makes us feel very happy and makes us alive and awake and to sing shows a feeling about happiness. You know the old saying, a bird cannot sing when it has nothing to sing about, which is basically saying, if you are unhappy you can not sing and of course showers make us happy. Also showers have wonderful echos in them, so ones voice actually sounds far better in there, then it possibly is (sorry to tell you that). One of the very first things my singing coach told me when I was younger, was to never do my warm up for a performance in the shower room because you get a false sense of security in there… but all of those to enjoy singing in the shower and don't do it for a profession- should just go ahead and enjoy every second!


Frida Sofía Téllez – I would like to know, dear Sarah, What do You think about your teenagers fans? Because, You have to know, in these days, lot of us love You and Your music! And, did You know we call Your/Our fandom "Brightmaniacs"? What do You think about this name? 

Sarah – Thank you for the very kind and lovely words Frida! I am extremely happy that I have many teenage fans! Actually my niece is a teenager and she is sometimes a fan (ha ha), and she is also very verbal on what she does not like – I showed her a video of myself when I was a teenager doing a song called "I Lost My Heart To A Starship Trooper" and I think she was truly embarrassed, as of course,  it was of song and video of its time in the 70's –  it is wonderful to know that my music and performances are engaging to every age group – and teenages are incredibly important to me because you are the future!
