Sara Bareilles' Little Voice is about to get a little bit louder.

Apple TV+'s new music drama, executive produced by Bareilles, follows Bess King (Star's Brittany O’Grady), an aspiring singer-songwriter, as she struggles to fulfill her dreams while navigating rejection, love and complicated family issues. A love letter to the diverse musicality of New York City, the nine-episode series is a story about finding your authentic voice -- and the courage to use it.

In ET's exclusive sneak peek from the series, Bess is parked by the arch in Greenwich Village's Washington Square Park when she begins to strum the opening chords of Amy Winehouse's "Valerie" as she busks for passersby. Her eyes light up when someone drops the first dollar bills into her hat.

Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard announced as first cover athlete for NBA 2K21

  Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard announced as first cover athlete for NBA 2K21 Damian Lillard becomes the first Portland Trail Blazers player to grace the cover of NBA 2K.Game developer 2K announced today that Lillard would be one of three players featured on the cover of the upcoming release of the game, with the other two yet-to-be-named players to grace the covers of the next-generation version and Legends edition of the game.

But when she sees that it's Samuel (Dear Evan Hansen's Colton Ryan), a guitarist she hired for a failed gig, Bess tries to shoo him away. "You hired me for the night," Samuel says, not leaving his spot even as Bess tells him goodnight.

Bess returns to her guitar, strumming the opening chords again to "Valerie" and starting to sing the Winehouse song. Not giving up, Samuel takes out his guitar and joins in, turning Bess' solo into an impromptu duet.

A few moments later, Bess caves. "Fine!" she exclaims, pausing for a second to carefully consider her next words. "But we split the pot."

"Whatever you say, boss," Samuel replies. Watch ET's exclusive clip above.

Bareilles spoke to ET's Keltie Knight about showcasing New York City in all its pre-coronavirus glory.

  ‘Home Town Takeover' Stars Ben and Erin Napier Show Off Their Celeb-Gifted Airstream (Exclusive) The 'Home Town' hosts opened up to ET about their new HGTV special.Ben and Erin recently joined ET's Nischelle Turner via video chat where they dished on their road to HGTV stardom, and the super sweet gift they got from country singer Chris Stapleton.

"The fact that we got to finish filming before all this happened and we got to finish editing, sound mixing, there was something that felt very protected about the show. But I love it. I love rewatching these episodes now 'cause I take long walks in the city these days. I take 10-mile walks and everything is so emptied out and it's such a different place," the singer recalled. "It's so beautiful to look back and to know that it will return [to this at some point], but there's something really sweet and nostalgic about the show because it's in the context of such a different version of New York City."

Sean Teale, Shalini Bathina, Kevin Valdez, Phillip Johnson Richardson and Chuck Cooper also star in the half-hour series, which hails from Bareilles, Jessie Nelson and J.J. Abrams.

Little Voice premieres Friday, July 10 on Apple TV+ with the first three episodes, before dropping new episodes weekly.

Everything to Know About Lady A's Name Change Lawsuit .
Let the games begin. The band formerly known as Lady Antebellum announced in June that they were changing their name — but the transition hasn’t been easy. Band members Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood confirmed that they would be taking the country group in a new direction after acknowledging the dangerous history of the word “antebellum” amid nationwide Black Lives Matter protests. “As a band, we have strived for our music to be a refuge … inclusive of all,” the Grammy winners declared via a lengthy Instagram statement on June 11. “After much personal reflection, band discussion, prayer and many honest conversations with some of our closest Black friends and colleagues, we have decided to drop the word ‘antebellum’ from our name and move forward as Lady A, the nickname our fans gave us almost from the start.” Scott, 34, Kelley, 38, and Haywood, 37, admitted that they felt “regretful and embarrassed” about not being more aware of the meaning behind the word and its connection to slavery. “We are deeply sorry for the hurt this has caused and for anyone who has felt unsafe, unseen or unvalued,” they added. One day after news of their name change made headlines, the band faced backlash from blues singer Anita White, who has been performing under the name Lady A for over 20 years. “This is too much right now,” White, 61, told Rolling Stone magazine on June 12. “They’re using the name because of a Black Lives Matter incident that, for them, is just a moment in time.
