There's more to Rachel Platten than "Fight Song." Stream all four tracks on her EP.

Rachel Platten made her network television debut on Good Morning America today (May 14). The 33-year-old performed breakthrough hit “Fight Song” surrounded by people who have been inspired by the anthem’s uplifting message. The result was an unusually affecting piece of breakfast television, which catapulted the track into iTunes top 10. With a video still to come and promo just beginning, it’s only going to climb higher.

“Fight Song” has taken on a life of its own since debuting in an episode of Pretty Little Liars. Not only did it snag Rachel a major label record deal after 12 years of trying, it was also embraced by people going through major ordeals — like cancer patient Christine Luckenbaugh. (Watch the singer/songwriter serenade her here). The breakout artist’s debut EP dropped earlier this week.
