It was impossible to avoid the success of her worldwide hit FIGHT SONG this Summer and now Massachusetts-born Rachel Platten is ready to prove her mettle, throwing out another hit.
Major label recognition came a bit late for the gorgeous singer/songwriter who got her big breakthrough at age 34, but when it happened, we all took notice very quickly. Taylor Swift would soon be professing her love, donning a “THIS IS MY FIGHT SONG” shirt and having Platten join her onstage. Love it or not, when Fight Song comes on the radio, one cannot deny they at least know how to hum its infectious chorus.
Platten is touring and promoting right now and although we looked forward to her making a visit to Toronto sooner – a visit earlier this month got postponed – we got our moment finally!
I came ready armed with my own “THIS IS MY FIGHT SONG“, which she noticed right away, but only after being smitten with Billy. She gave me a huge hug and was genuine in her appreciation of the support. After a quick performance and interview on CITY’s Breakfast Television (see it here), she came out looking amazing in a crop top and a feathery black jacket. Fans all got photos and Platten was just lovely. We expected her to be so nice from what we see online and she was everything we imagined.
Earlier this morning, she revealed she will be coming to Toronto soon on-tour! While we still are waiting on her early 2016 debut through Columbia Records, which we 100% are buying, we have latest single Stand By You to enjoy.
