Rachel Platten’s “Stand By You” Video Will Tug At Your Heartstrings: Watch
It was always going to be tough to follow up “Fight Song.” After 12 years of hard grind, the empowering anthem delivered Rachel Platten a much-deserved international hit and was embraced by people going through tough times. The 34-year-old could either do an about-face or embrace her status as the new queen of self-help pop. She chose the latter and made it her mission to continue uplifting the masses with “Stand By You.”
The video for Rachel’s new single arrives today and it’s going to tug on your heartstrings — one way or another! There are nostalgic home movies, adorable children, cute old people, fireworks, serene waves, glamorous gowns and even a choir. It’s incredibly over the top, but I’m here for it. With artists desperately trying to prove how little they care in 2015, it’s refreshing to see someone doing the absolute most and enjoying every moment. Watch up top.
