Community Scoop: Grammy Nominee Sara Bareilles Joins Puppet-Themed Episode

Community Casts Sara BareillesMany a Community fan video has led to this very moment: Sara Bareilles is Greendale-bound.

TVLine has learned that the Grammy-nominated songstress — whose ballad “Gravity” has been showcased on the series and utilized in countless Greendale ‘shipper tributes — will guest-star in the NBC comedy’s upcoming puppet-themed installment.

Details surrounding her gig are being kept under wraps, but we can confirm that Bareilles is not playing herself in the April 11 episode, which features the gang in felt form after its hot-air balloon ride crashes in the woods.

    Never really watched the show, but if Sara B is gonna be on it, I’ll definitely watch it! She has a comedy side which is very natural.
