The poignant and powerful visual, which features Ludacris, premiered on NBC’s Today Show this morning before launching globally across digital platforms.
Directed by Jimmy Lynch, the video features a behind-the-scenes look at Underwood and Ludacris recording the song as well as historic moments and footage highlighting professional athletes and everyday champions.
Fans have already started joining in by sharing their own champion-inspired photos and videos across social media using #TheChampion. Our favorite? Sandy’s featuring her little epilepsy warrior.
