About This TV Commercial

You Raise Me Up is a remarkable song that has inspired millions around the world with its message of hope, strength and overcoming. Our goal was to develop a visual montage that would compliment the rich meaning of these lyrics. We looked at the theme, "Raise Me Up" and put a team of researchers on the task of selecting scenes that both caught the spirit of the song and flowed together to tell a story. Additionally, scenes from our Foundation archives were used to punctuate particular moments in this spot.

Our director and editor worked many weeks adding and deleting scenes to achieve the final result. We hope you enjoy this PSA and find a personal message of inspiration as you experience "You Raise Me Up."

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains

If I spent less time on myself and focus more time inspiring and encouraging others I believe I'd be a better person. If each of us did this day in and day out we'd have a better world. Good reminder from this video! Have a great day!

"Raise Me Up" is a very beautiful song and inspiring making you think twice, of how beautifull it is , when our children are still children, than they grow up, leave and we are left all alone when our children leave for college and I find myself eating by myself, of course missing my son.
