Go Rachel Platten! The gorgeous songstress rocked the Teen Choice Awards with a stunning rendition of ‘Fight Song,’ and we’re obsessed. Only Rachel could tear down the house with such a spectacular — and emotional — performance! Click through to watch!
Rachel Platten, 34, is a total superstar! Singing her beautiful “Fight Song,” Rachel completely stole the show at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards, held Sunday, August 16. We’re such fans of this amazing singer, and her rendition of “Fight Song” was made so much more special by her special surprise at the end of her performance. What an inspiring woman!
Rachel took to the stage gracefully playing the piano, with just the beautiful melody and her voice on display. But with something like “Fight Song,” you can’t just sit there! Rachel rose from her seat and belted her heart out center stage, pumping her fists as the crowd took in her powerful words. Were you as inspired as we were?
She ended her gorgeous performance by inviting several teen activists up onstage, who held up signs describing what they’re fighting for: things like conservation, human rights, and LGBT acceptance. It’s incredible what these teenagers are doing at such a young age, and commendable that Rachel put the focus on them during her own time in the limelight!
We’ve been eyeing Rachel ever since we first heard her single “Fight Song” featured on our favorite show, Pretty Little Liars, and again in the kickass trailer for the upcoming Supergirl. What an apt outlet for Rachel to be featured — she’s absolutely a super girl too! When “Fight Song” was first released, Rachel sweetly posted to her Facebook, thanking her fans for their support as her song became mega-popular: “To every single person that’s ever believed in me, to every mile that I’ve driven across the country, you made this moment that much sweeter. Proud to have just signed to Columbia Records. Time to spread the love,” Rachel wrote. Cool, and humble!
After her Teen Choice Awards performance, we know that Rachel’s star is just going to keep shining brighter and brighter! What an amazing talent, and incredible performance. We’re not going to forget Rachel and what those teens are fighting for, for a long time.
