Award-winning, multi-platinum selling, international pop star Rachel Platten has unveiled her heartwarming new music video for her latest single “Better Place” off her Gold certified album Wildfire. Watch here: http://smarturl.it/BetterPlaceVideo
“My goal for this video was to try to capture that moment of raw emotion when you look into the eyes of someone you love,” says Rachel. “Casting actual fans to participate in this shoot really brought the concept to life. Now every time I watch it I get the feels!”
“Better Place” proves to be yet another hit single for Rachel as it’s already Top 20 at Adult Pop radio. The album Wildfire features the third single and debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 chart in January. Rachel’s previous two singles— “Stand By You” (Platinum certified) and “Fight Song” (3x Platinum certified)—both peaked at #1 at Adult Pop radio.
Last week, Rachel was awarded a Daytime Emmy (“Outstanding Musical Performance in a Talk Show/Morning Show”) for her incredible performance of “Fight Song” on ABC’s Good Morning America (watch HERE), succeeding artists including Adele and Bruno Mars. Rachel recently took home the award for “Best Lyrics” at the iHeartRadio Music Awards and landed her first Billboard Music Award nomination in the “Top Selling Song” category for “Fight Song”; the awards will be held later this month.
Recently spotlighted in ELLE’s “Women In Music” issue, Rachel continues on tour throughout the summer. See below for additional tour dates.
