Bareilles's critically acclaimed sophomore release Kaleidoscope Heart was released in September of 2010, debuted at #1 on the Billboard top 200 chart and has gained critical praise everywhere including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, People, and Los Angeles Times. The album yielded the hit single "King of Anything," which earned a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and was certified platinum by the RIAA.

In early 2012, Bareilles released a documentary called A Trace of the Sun: Volunteering in Japan, which chronicled her trip to Japan where she joined All Hands Volunteer efforts in the city of Ofunato after the 2011 earthquake and subsequent tsunami that devastated coastal cities and left more than 26,000 people without homes. Soon after she released her critically acclaimed Once Upon Another Time EP, which was produced by singer/songwriter and fellow Sing-Off judge Ben Folds.
