Sara Bareilles paid a musical tribute to Robin Williams during her recent concert in Los Angeles. Gracing the stage at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, the singer sang one of her tracks called "Hercules" and dedicated it to the late actor and his family.
"I feel so sad about Robin Williams," she said and went on telling the crowd that her Grammy-nominated album "The Blessed Unrest" was written during a rough period in her life. "The parallel I want to draw is: Life gets hard and I really believe it gets better," she added.
Williams was found dead at his home in Northern California on Monday, August 11. He was 63. Based on a preliminary investigation, the comedian is believed to have died of suicide as a result of asphyxia due to hanging. He also had several superficial cuts on the inside of his left wrist. A toxicology report that would reveal any chemicals in his system is pending and will be released in two to six weeks.
His publicist, Mara Buxbaum, said that the star was battling "severe depression" prior to his death.
