Rise Up was originally released by Andra Day on her 2015 album Cheers To The Fall. It is about times being hard and things going bad for you, finding the strength to Rise Up, not being afraid, and trying again until you succeed. Rachel gives a great rendition of this song, making the melody more beautiful than the original, while the piano is mixed too loud, and dominates too much at some points, Rachel‘s singing still comes through and demands your attention to this magnificent performance. And the video is a delight to watch, as it was filmed on Malta, where even the ruins are stunningly beautiful.
You can follow Rachel on her Website, on Facebook, on Twitter, on SoundCloud, and on her YouTube channel.
