Rachel Ashley Platten is an American singer, songwriter and author. After releasing two albums independently in 2003 and 2011, she signed with Columbia Records in 2015 and released her debut single, "Fight Song", which peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, topped charts in the United Kingdom and peaked within the top ten of multiple charts worldwide. Platten won a Daytime Emmy Award for a live performance of the song on Good Morning America. Her major-label debut studio album, Wildfire , was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America and featured the follow-up singles "Stand by You" and "Better Place". Her second major-label album, Waves , peaked at number 73 in the United States of America.
Platten was born on May 20, 1981, in New York City to Paul and Pamela Platten, and grew up in Newton Centre, Massachusetts and attended the Mason-Rice Elementary School. She was raised Jewish. She has a younger sister, Melanie. Platten studied classical piano from the age of 5 and then took up guitar in high school. She attended Buckingham Browne and Nichols high school, where she sang in the school's singing group. At Trinity College, she was a member of the Trinity College Trinitones, the college's first all-female a cappella group.
As a part of a study abroad program, she went to Trinidad to do an internship at a diplomat's office and at a record label. While she was there, she sang backup for a friend's band in front of over 80,000 people at the International Soca Monarch finals in 2002. According to Platten, from that moment on she knew she had to pursue music full-time.
Platten graduated from Trinity College with a degree in political science in 2003. She moved to New York City's Greenwich Village performing in a Prince and Sly and the Family Stone cover band called Dayz of Wild. She performed her solo music around the Village and eventually began touring the country.
