  • Yo, it's Positive Tunes every week where we bring you positive, uplifting songs so that you can break free from your worries, your lack of confidence.

  • And just simply feel better about yourself or feel inspired. And along the way pick up some good English.

  • And this week we've chosen the girl that's made a major breakthrough in the music scene with this song that just makes you wanna play it over and over again on your mp3 player.

  • It's Rachel Platten and her hit song - 'Fight Song'.

  • She had a charting single called '1,000 ships' in 2011, and I still recall playing that song on the radio back then. It has a very catchy melody.

  • However, even though that song made a blip on the radar. After that according to her, she said,

  • "Things quickly dissolved. I lost my manager. I lost my label. I lost a lot of my support.

  • And I was kind of left just trying to survey what was going on in my career, and wondering

  • if I was even going to try to continue."

  • So for the past couple of years she's been playing in bars, traveling miles in a van she bought.

  • Just going back to her roots, the very thing that she has loved since she was little, that was music.

  • Eventually she met Ben Singer of SMG Entertainment and then later on became her manager.

  • He told her to focus on song-writing. And that's when she came down with the song - "Fight Song". A song telling her story.

  • So let's sing this song right now, and learn the English lyrics within it.

  • And please do forgive my singing because this is a girl song actually, and I'm gonna have to sing in a very deep and low voice.

  • Anyways, here it goes.

  • And that is our positive tune for this week - Rachel Platten's Fight Song. A song that is going wild in the United States and all around the globe.

  • I hope you liked it, too. We will see you next week.

  • At the meantime, you can always look me up on Facebook or YouTube.

  • Just search JR Lee Radio. That's J-R-L-E-E-Radio.

Yo, it's Positive Tunes every week where we bring you positive, uplifting songs so that you can break free from your worries, your lack of confidence.
