Listen to Siedah Garrett's "Reach Up LA" (the 2015 Special Olympics Theme Song)

Siedah Garrett

Many may not remember the name Siedah Garrett but almost everyone knows the songs she has written.  Some of Garrett's compositions include Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror"  and Jennifer Hudson's "Love You I Do."  Now, she has been invited to write the official theme song for the Special Olympics. "Reach Up L.A." is Garrett's composition for the 2015 Special Olympics theme.

This is in fact Garrett's second composition for the organization. She collaborated with uber producer Quincy Jones on "I Know I Can" for the 2007 games. She'll perform "Reach Up" during this year's Special Olympics opening ceremony on Saturday, July 25 before first lady Michelle Obama and an estimated crowd of 96,000 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum (it will also be aired on ESPN).

"I feel like lightning has struck twice in my life with regards to the Special Olympics," Garrett tells Billboard. "I feel really blessed to be part of something so massive and so important and so encouraging. It makes me feel light and happy inside. When you see these athletes doing what even they never thought they could, you can't not smile and often cry tears of joy for them. It's a really awesome experience."
