Music Video Of The Day: Rachael Yamagata 'Starlight'

By Lisa White in Arts & Entertainment on Oct 8, 2014 10:00PM

Even though it's been a long time since Rachael Yamagata called Chicago home, we still like to claim her as one of our own. With her sultry and husky vocals, Yamagata cut her teeth around town singing in the local act Bumpus before heading out on her own solo career. She's continued to shine over the years and is stopping by Chicago this week to celebrate the 10th anniversary of her debut full-length album, Happenstance. That celebratory show at Schubas on Thursday is sold out, but you can catch her Friday at Lincoln Hall instead.

Since you apparently can't watch music videos on television anymore, we'll showcase one here daily. There's no rhyme or reason, time or season, to which video we'll choose. Have a suggestion? Contact us at
