"Rise" is a song by American singer Katy Perry. The song is released on 15 July 2016 by Capitol Records and it is also featured as an anthem for NBC's coverage of the upcoming 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. "Rise" is written by Katy Perry herself as well as Savan Kotecha, Max Martin and Ali Payami.

"This is a song that's been brewing inside me for years, that has finally come to the surface," Perry said about the song. I was inspired to finish it now, rather than save it for my next album, because now more than ever, there is a need for our world to unite. I know that together we can rise above the fear — in our country, and around the world... I can't think of a better example than the Olympic athletes, as they gather in Rio with their strength and fearlessness, to remind us how we ALL can come together, with the resolve to be the best we can be, ... I hope this song can inspire us to heal, unite, and rise together." -Katy Perry

Katy commanded the stage at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday night, revealing her intention to vote for Hilary Clinton. In addition, she also gave the first live performance of "Rise" later that night. Following the next day, the music video for the song was released and it featured eminent athletes such as Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps, swimmer Missy Franklin, gymnastics star Simone Biles, not to mention members of the U.S. women's soccer team.

Rise lyrics

I won't just survive
Oh, you will see me thrive
Can't write my story
I'm beyond the archetype

I won't just conform
No matter how you shake my core
'Cause my roots they run deep, oh

Oh, ye of so little faith
Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in my veins
I know it, I know it
And I will not negotiate
I'll fight it, I'll fight it
I will transform

When, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They're whispering, "You're out of time”
But still I rise

This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in
Think again
Don't be surprised
I will still rise

I must stay conscious
Through the madness and chaos
So I call on my angels
They say

Oh, ye of so little faith
Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in your veins
You know it, you know it
And you will not negotiate
Just fight it, just fight it
And be transformed

'Cause when, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They're whispering, "You're out of time”
But still I rise

This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in
Think again
Don't be surprised
I will still rise

Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Oh, oh, oh, oh
You know it, you know it
Still rise
Just fight it, just fight it
Don't be surprised
I will still rise
