“The world has seen an unsettling amount of violence, prejudice and hatred lately with several shootings in the US, and most recently, another alleged terrorist attack in France. However, with the upcoming Olympic Games, there is hope for a more united world as spectators and athletes come together for the event.

Katy Perry debuted the inspiring Rio 2016 anthem, “Rise,” on the TODAY Show…

The song was originally going to debut on her upcoming album, but in light of recent events, she wanted to finish it sooner. The song channels a sense of unity and strength, two things the Games embody.”
