Katy Perry Releases The Video To Her New Song ‘Rise’, The Rio 2016 Olympics Anthem
To help foster world unity and peace in the face of everything that’s happening in the world presently, Katy Perry has released an inspiring new song and accompanying video titled, ‘Rise’.
The song has been adopted by the NBC Olympics as the anthem for Rio 2O16.
Watch the video below:
Perry made a statement about the powerful tune, saying:
“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.”
