Sarah Brightman: Writing Music on the Space Station

Sarah Brightman will be visiting the International Space Station in 2015 with the goal of writing and performing music.

Despite the rigours of training, this is a "very creative time", Brightman said. "The whole journey has inspired a lot in my artistic life which I didn't really expect You always think a journey like that is more technical, but it's exactly the opposite." The singer's new record, Dreamchaser, is out now, and it too "had a lot to do with space exploration" — "looking up to the outs of the universe, the stars, the planets, the night skies".

Brightman claims her whole career has been inspired by childhood dreams of the cosmos. "It gave me a force in my life to be experimental in my music career," she said. "[To] go where no man has gone before."
