Rachel Platten      

Singer-Songwriter Known for "Fight Song"

Born in New York City and raised in Massachusetts, Rachel Platten is an Emmy Award winner, multi-platinum selling recording artist.

Few artists in the past decade have struck a chord of hope and resilience like she did with her empowering hit “Fight Song.” Listeners instantly adopted the transformative anthem as their own, linking fans’ tales of personal empowerment across the globe.

Platten topped countless radio and iTunes charts worldwide, with her major label debut album “Wildfire” which also included the platinum Billboard Hot 100 hit, “Stand By You.”

In 2017, Platten released her second full-length album for Columbia Records called Waves. Co-writing every song, and working with stellar songwriters and producers including Ryan Tedder, Stargate, Jason Evigan and Ian Kirkpatrick. Songs range from the shimmering unshackling of “Broken Glass,” to the sultry, infectious “Shivers.” More intimate songs such as the bewitching “Collide,” the piano-tinged “Hands” and the album’s moving closer “Grace” reflect the unguarded side of the talented singer songwriter.

Pregnant with her first child, Platten released a song dedicated to her daughter "You Belong" at the end of 2018. From May to July 2019, Platten toured with a capella group Pentatonix as the opening act for their shows in North America. She wrote a children's book titled "You Belong," named after her 2018 single, which was released on March 31, 2020.
