Hot off the heels of the Inspirational tune “Rise Up”, the sensational Andra Day delivers two visuals, backing the successful hit single.

The Inspirational Version (above) was directed by M. Night Shyamalan, and the Introspective Version was helmed by Spike Lee.

Andra also recently debuted her brand new campaign, partnering with both Coca-ColaMcDonald’s, and the Essence Festival, which is based off the official track. She celebrated the launch for her new program in New York City, held at a flagship McD’s location. SFPL‘s own Gabriel Williams and Hello Beautiful‘s Shamika Sanders were both in attendance, pictured above.

The program features Andra and the lyrics of her single, and the film I Rise, on close to 40 million Coca-Cola cups in select McDonald’s restaurants across the nation.


The short film ‘I Rise’ was created to focus on African-American women sharing the incredible strides they are making in their communities. Those featured in the film were Brandice Daniel, LaToya Cantrell, Kyemah McEntyre, Nzingha Prescod, Bene Vera, Kimberly Goldson, Kathryn Finney, Michaela Angela Davis, and Andra herself.
