Rachel Platten is pretty cool in my book

This may be the cheesiest blog I've ever written.  I'd heard Fight Song on the radio a bunch of times before, but I never really paid any attention to it and I had no idea who Rachel Platten was--until I happened to catch her perform on the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night (I have no explanation for why I was watching the Teen Choice Awards).

Now I can't get the song out of my head.

Two things about Platten caught my attention.  One, she's from Newton, MA.  And two, she's 34 year old.  To become a breakout pop star at age 34 is absolutely amazing.  That just doesn't happen.  Not only that, but the song that did it for her basically tells it's own story.  How perfect is that?
