The singer-songwriter discussed the song's history with Fallon while she was starring in the Peacock musical comedy “Girls5eva.”

As a songwriter, having a song sort of go on its own is like the stuff of dreams, she added. “I composed it as a love letter to a close friend of mine who was having a hard time coming out, but throughout the years, the song took on a couple of other life of its own and was welcomed by various communities, notably the LGBTQ+ community.

The long-term reaction to the song is “very profound,” according to Bareilles, who said that she has a lot of letters and tales from people who have told her that “Brave” was a part of their coming-out narrative.

In addition, “Brave” was listed by Billboard as one of the top LGBTQ+ anthems of all time, coming in at number 51.

A one-hit wonder female trio from the 1990s attempting to regroup is the subject of the Peacock comedy “Girls5eva,” which Bareilles discussed how she got involved with. Before joining the cast, she said she had never met Tina Fey, the show's executive producer; the closest she had ever come was waiting in line with Fey at a charity.

She admitted, “I didn't have the cojones to say anything at that moment. But I thought, “Oh my God, I'm right there with Tina Fey.”
