Known for empowering anthems like “Fight Song,” “Stand By You,” and “Broken Glass”, her latest single is no different, welcoming the arrival of her first baby with husband Kevin Lazan. The video follows Rachel’s journey throughout her pregnancy–from the morning sickness to the room decorating and every ultrasound in between.
“It was written just for us and I never intended for the world to hear it because it felt so personal…but sometimes that’s exactly the art that craves other ears” Rachel says about the touching single.
A closer listen reveals the baby’s heartbeat keeping time throughout the duration of the song. Platten first announced her pregnancy via Instagram in July and is now in her third trimester.
“This is me choosing bravery over fear and a little temporary expansion in the midst of some serious nesting. I’m excited.”
International pop star Rachel Platten first made the transition into a professional singing career after performing in college. The vibrant musician broke through in 2015 with her uplifting pop hit, “Fight Song”; the multi-platinum selling single topped countless radio and iTunes Charts around the globe before being succeeded by her platinum Billboard 100 hit, “Stand By You”. Rachel’s Gold-certified, major label debut album Wildfire was released by Columbia Records in 2016. The singer has won several awards, including the 2016 Daytime EMMY Awards for Outstanding Musical Performance in a Talk Show/Morning Program for her television debut performance of “Fight Song” on Good Morning America.
