Singer Sara Bareilles, who had performed at the Indiana State Fair as a supporting act for headliners Sugarland, still can't believe the tragedy happened. The stage fell on concertgoers following severe weather, killing five and injuring dozens.
Bareilles posted on her official website, "The accident at the Indiana State Fair felt like a bad dream. The weather changed in a matter of minutes and the stage collapsed in a matter of seconds. We are shocked and saddened by this horribly tragic circumstance and we are all praying for those affected."
She continued, "The emergency response was incredibly speedy and the people of Indiana as well as the crews from the show were beyond brave and working hard to help each other. My heart aches for the lives lost or injured as well as their families. We will do whatever we possibly can to help heal the hurt from this very sad day."
