After 12 numerous years of hard toil, Rachel Platten finally struck chart gold with “Fight Song.” The feel-good anthem topped iTunes, peaked at number six for the Billboard Hot 100 and has now sold 1.2million downloads to this point. More impressive, however, will be the way the track may be embraced by people experiencing tough times for their own personal mantra. (If you want to cry/feel incredibly inspired, watch this beautiful sing-a-long with pre-teen cancer patient Jeremiah). Check Fight song sheet music.
Stand By You – Rachel Platten
How will you follow a hugely successful song that’s deeply touched people’s lives? With a track called “Stand By You.” Rachel is performing the mid-tempo tune, which drops tomorrow (September 11), in the live sets and it’s another mood-lifting anthem. (She really has carved out a market as pop’s new self-help guru!) I’m somewhat sad EP highlight “Lone Ranger” was passed over, but this will likely do nicely.
