Favorite Songs & New Tunes at Transcendence

Every show created for Broadway Under the Stars features an incredible lineup of songs by some of the most extraordinary talents of Broadway and beyond. Our productions have many familiar tunes, as well as songs we love to introduce to our audiences.

One of the songs in FASCINATING RHYTHM that you may not be familiar with is written by singer and songwriter Andra Day, who just recently performed at Bottle Rock. Her strong anthem Rise Up is packed with inspiring words that we can’t wait to share with audiences… and, of course, we can’t wait to share our Transcendence take on this incredible song.

Check out the lyrics below…

RISE UP | By Andra Day

You’re broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry-go-round
And you can’t find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains

And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
And I’ll rise up
High like the waves
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you

When the silence isn’t quiet
And it feels like it’s getting hard to breathe
And I know you feel like dying
But I promise we’ll take the world to its feet
And move mountains
Bring it to its feet
And move mountains
And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you

All we need, all we need is hope
And for that we have each other
And for that we have each other
And we will rise
We will rise
We’ll rise, oh oh
We’ll rise

I’ll rise up
Rise like the day
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I will rise a thousand times again
And we’ll rise up
High like the waves
We’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
We’ll rise up
And we’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
