The accomplished singer-songwriter co-created the coming-of-age series with uber-producer J.J. Abrams and Jessie Nelson, and wrote all original songs that will be featured in the show.
On Friday, Apple TV+ dropped the first teaser for Little Voice, accompanied by the titular theme song written and performed by Bareilles, who is a GRAMMY winner and Tony and Emmy nominee.
"Little Voice," Bareilles revealed on Twitter, was a song she wrote when she was in her mid-20s, and only now will it finally see the light of day.
I wrote LITTLE VOICE when I was 24 years old and it has been sitting as a “demo” ever since. I’m so proud to see it as the theme to a new show about finding your voice! Made with love ❤️https://t.co/QUMu4aTRgu pic.twitter.com/qQunYZ9eep— Sara Bareilles (@SaraBareilles) June 12, 2020
