"I know you all know the words. Sing a long!" said the singer-songwriter as she belted out the opening lines to the band's hit 'You're a Rich Girl.'
Along with the cover, Birch delivered her brand of piano pop to a small but enthusiastic crowd as the sun set over Manchester, Tenn. for the first night of the annual music festival.
Despite the typical hot and muggy Tennessee air, Birch's high-energy show kept the crowd in good spirits as she sang songs off her debut album 'Bible Belt.' From the catchy groove of 'Valenino' to the R&B-influenced 'Photograph,' she was on point the minute she stepped onstage.
The highlight of the show came when Birch stepped out from behind her piano to sing a self-described song about "appreciating things in life that f---ed you over" as she went into the gospel-like hymn of 'Forgiveness.' Like a preacher during a sermon, Birch had the crowd following her every move while she walked around the front of the stage belting out the word 'Halleljuah.' Being that Bonnaroo takes place in the heart of "The Bible Belt," it was perhaps fitting that the song received the loudest approval of the show.
