Sarah McLachlin: Austin City Limits, Dec.8, 2008

Sarah McLachlin is one of the best I’ve ever seen. She does a thing with her voice, where it slides from high register to falsetto, with so much skill and grace and seeming ease that she lifts everyone right along with her to where angels live. And she’s super nice, to boot… Which leads me to why I picked this shot. With someone like her, images of trancelike sublime ecstasy made while channeling that sound she sings to (and for) everyone–that shot is usually what I go for, since it’s what the artist looks like while in the thrall of the Source… But Sarah brings so much of her own positive energy to her performance… I thought I’d share a shot where you can catch a glimpse of who her stage personality, (and seemingly real persona) is, too….
