Most people know Rachel Platten because of her famous Fight Song. That song was absolutely a hit in 2014 and it is an anthem for those who are going to go after their dreams wholeheartedly and never give up.
These days, Platten is still churning out music, and she also has accomplished a lot in life. It may only have been a decade since that original song was released, but now she has written a new song called Girls, and it is inspiring.
This song was originally written for her two daughters but she was about to do something that people around the world are falling in love with. Her neighbor came to her concert and it turns out she is 100 years old.
Gloria, her neighbor, wanted to hear Platten singing her song, so she decided to come along to the concert. What she wasn’t expecting was for the singer to give her a shout-out in a way that is sending chills down the spines of people around the world.
her reaction is everything 🤍
The video above shows you just how much Gloria loves her music. The friendship that they share is absolutely beautiful, and the expressions that Gloria gives are priceless.
When the singer dedicated a song to her, she was blown away. Gloria was all smiles, and it was a beautiful thing to see.
What many people don’t know is that Platten was not always as sure of her music as she is today. She confided in Gloria about this, and Gloria suggested that she have a second child.
Just wait till she hears the song
“You said if you have the second baby, I promise you, your music will take off again,” Platten recalls. “And after having that baby, I wrote a song to both of my daughters to tell them what I want them to know in the world.”
Gloria suggested that she write another song and she sat down at the piano and sang the song for her. You can really see Gloria getting emotional as the music is playing.

This is a beautiful match made in heaven and it is sure to be something that they treasure for a lifetime.
