Sara Bareilles: Indiana State Fair disaster happened 'in a matter of seconds'
The disaster happened after Bareilles performed her opening act, but before the headliners of the evening -- Sugarland -- went on stage.
Already having shared her feelings on Twitter, in a statement to the New York Daily News, Bareilles says the whole experience "felt like a bad dream," but reports that emergency response was "incredibly fast," along with the show crew that pitched in to help.
"My heart aches for the lives lost or injured as well as their families," Bareilles says. "We will do whatever we possibly can to help heal the hurt from this very sad day."
