Katy Perry Faces Nature's Elements in Motivational 'Rise' Video: Watch

Katy Perry'"Rise" is one of the more motivational songs to be released in the midst of worldwide tragedies, and now the official video has arrived. The clip finds the singer pushing herself to the extreme limits amongst nature.

Strapped with a giant hot pink parachute, a determined Katy is seen climbing cliffs and swimming through a river. At one point, she falls down to her knees and seems to be giving up. But she powers through and soars into the clouds.

"Rise" will be used by NBC to soundtrack its coverage of the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Brazil, which kicks off on Aug. 5. Katy shared in a statement,

"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."
