Rachel Platten Interview
Rachel Platten talks breakthrough hit "Fight Song," her EP and long road to the top.

When is it time to give up on your dream? That question bounced around Rachel Platten’s mind as she sat down to write “Fight Song.” After all, she had been trying to get a foothold in the music industry for more than a decade. “I didn’t think it was going to happen,” the 33-year-old told Idolator in April. “I thought I might need to figure something else out… through writing the song I made the decision to not give up on myself.”

With “Fight Song” now shooting up the charts, it’s fair to say that Rachel is enjoying a fairytale ending. However, she hasn’t forgotten the inner-turmoil that inspired her breakthough hit and that journey is reflected in the video, which documents gigs in near-empty venues and long, sleepless nights. The late bloomer then has an epiphany and heads to the beach to soak up the sun with her friends. Watch the semi-autobiographical visual up top.
