WATCH the New Video for Katy Perry’s Powerful Rio 2016 Olympics Anthem “Rise”



The past weeks have been quite heart-wrenching and pop singer, Katy Perry is beaming as a hopeful a ray of light during these difficult times.

The singer released an uplifting new song ‘Rise’ and it will be used as an anthem leading up to the 2016 Rio Olympics. She explained in an Instagram video announcing the track’s release:

“This is a song that’s been brewing inside me for years, that has finally come to the surface, I was inspired to finish it now, rather than save it for my next album, because now more than ever, there is a need for our world to unite. I know that together we can rise above the fear—in our country, and around the world. I can’t think of a better example than the Olympic athletes, as they gather in Rio with their strength and fearlessness, to remind us how we ALL can come together, with the resolve to be the best we can be. I hope this song can inspire us to heal, unite, and rise together. I am honored that NBC Olympics has chosen to use it as an anthem before and during the Rio Games.”
