You Raise Me Up

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
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

Inspire…Pass it On.
A Message from The Foundation for a Better Life

Inspiration. Pass It On!

"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.

Wonderful ads for true values. Keep up the good work. Put them on every TV channel, on billboards, radio, in schools, churches, restaurants, EVERYWHERE.

I watched all of your videos but this one is the best one :)

Shawn from Tn OCTOBER 2, 2012
Probably the most motivational video I've ever seen. I'm an Army helicopter pilot who almost threw it all away in college with bad behavior and bad grades. It's never too late to turn it all around. It also can't hurt to have people around you who love you and support you.

kim from caribbean APRIL 11, 2012
When I first saw this ad on television, I sat and analyzed every piece of it. Your aim to match images with the message of the song was seen with every new image, whether it was the height of the mountains or the swing, it certainly lifted my spirit high. I just want to say thank you for taking the time out to inspire the world with these short but meaningful messages.

a fellow struggler from U.S. JANUARY 5, 2012
Great commercial. Paula P. I'm so sorry and I'm praying for your situation and hope it has improved by now. So many are struggling just like this. Without getting too political (however, it is they-politicians-who we've allowed to affect our lives so detrimentally in this manner) I hope in this next election cycle voters will vote smarter, choose to be more informed, and will bring consistently genuine conservative candidates with positive change to the country. We've now had enough of this to teach us a lesson for a very long time.

Jackie from E DECEMBER 7, 2011
wow! i had never paid attention to these things before and this made me reallized that my kids have a lot of activities out there that they are missing out on, so now i will take them to participate to see what they like for them to see that there is something out there other then cartoons and video games. THANKS ! THANKS !

Dave Brown from Nebraska JUNE 14, 2011
Beautiful. I am like a lot of us out here who have seen this message over and over. I finally looked deeper into it. You are doing a beautiful thing here. Don't ever quit, This is too precious. So many people are "Too" busy to see what is truly important in life and when they do "Finally" realize it, it's too late. Thanks, Dave

Kevin o from New york APRIL 22, 2011

Gary S from Jackson, MS DECEMBER 11, 2010
I saw this ad this morning for the first time and thought it was one of the greatest pieces of inspirational video I have ever seen. Your organization is to be admired for the beautiful messages and lessons you are sharing. Thank you for adding to the positive side of life here in our country. I wish I could join your effort. Cordially, Gary Silber Jackson, MS

Chris,H from Georgia DECEMBER 8, 2010
When I saw this add I had to go immediately to the computer and find out about it and specifically who is singing. Thank you for a wonderful inspirational spot.

Charles N from Lakeland, FL NOVEMBER 12, 2010
I had written earlier that the spot on sportsmanship failed because refs call fouls and players play the game. Sunday an NFL wide receiver admitted he committed an infraction that was not called. This is how sports are played. Some calls are missed. Sportsmanship is playing hard and with diligence even when the call goes against you. A player can't change a call, but he/she can play on with a good attitude.

Clay L. from Ozark, MO NOVEMBER 10, 2010
This touches my heart in more ways than simple words can define. If all the world can embrace the true meanings behind ads like this, it would be such a better and peaceful world.

Steve H from Indiana OCTOBER 23, 2010
Every single one of these ads should inspire all of us to be more positive in such a negative world that we live in most of the time. Every time I see any of these I love them and they make me have a better day. Thank you!

Eric .G from Cameroon OCTOBER 18, 2010
The world needs knowledge and it will be great to deliver many from ignorance.

Janet F. from New Jersey OCTOBER 4, 2010

I am totally enraptured when I see this ad. I love all of your ads. God bless the person/people that are responsible.

Shannon P from Fairbanks, AK SEPTEMBER 27, 2010

Jacqui H. from Sylvania, Ohio OCTOBER 28, 2009
I wait everyday to watch your TV spot, I have only seen it on the Fox News channel because that is the only news channel I watch. The song itself is so powerful and when you compliment it by the addition of a video the effect is astronomical. It lifts my spirit and opens my eyes to see how blessed I truly am. I pray the Lord will greatly bless your organization for this inspirational message.

I often just skip through commercials but this one gives me pause. The song is fantastic as are the visuals. I find myself reversing my DVR and replaying it. It's not often an ad can stop me from whatever I may be doing at the time, and pay attention to it and nothing else. Thanks, well done.

Just beautiful - how wonderful that together we can be inspired and may we all be an inspiration for one another. May we all be "raised up" for a better life. Thank you for the magnificent use of Josh Groban's song for the TV spot.

I have been singing this song for the six months I've been taking chemo for breast cancer. It has made me a survivor & will continue too. 'raise me up" thru six weeks of radiation. Thansk you, thank you !!!!

You might like to know that there is also another inspirational song by Josh Groban called "Don't Give Up (You Are Loved)." "You Raise Me Up" and "My Confession" are also among my favourites. Who doesn't need raising up from time to time? Everyone needs to know that they are loved, and encouraged to keep on going when things are though - that's the 'don't give up' bit! Josh's voice is so suited to this type of music, it is not only inspiration, and it is calming, relaxing and beautiful to listen to.

This is exactly what everyone needs on a daily basis. I teach Physical Education and we present a character education video or story every Friday to all our kids (5th-8th grade) and they love it.

I just saw this commercial for the first time yesterday - it's fantastic! It made me look up from my computer, and I was transfixed.

Naisha V. from Kissimmee, FL SEPTEMBER 1, 2008
I have always loved this song, and every time I see this spot on television I have to stop and watch it. It really touches my heart...

I love this TV ad. My one year old daughter Angel stops to watch and listen too. Awesome!

Jill A. from Aiken, SC AUGUST 19, 2008
I saw this ad on Speed channel and I couldn't believe one of my favorite inspirational songs was actually playing on an advertisement. It would be great if this were shown on many more channels. Thank you!

Nancy E. from Raleigh, NC AUGUST 17, 2008
I just saw the "Inspire" TV spot with Josh Groban singing "You Raise Me Up". I love this song, Josh, and your wonderful ad. I think Josh demonstrates many of the traits that you are trying to inspire in others. He is truly one of my heroes on and off the stage.

Mark H. from Shelbyville, TN AUGUST 8, 2008
I am a school counselor and see so many things. This commercial was powerful and gave me such encouragement. Thanks for the inspiration!

Beverly H. from Moyock, NC JULY 30, 2008
Saw this ad for the first time this week. Actually, I "heard" it first and came running - yes, literally RUNNING through the house to get to the television when I heard JOSH GROBAN singing one of my favorites. The combination of Josh's voice and the beautiful, inspiring images is perfect. Well done!

Ed K. from Trumbull, CT JULY 4, 2008
Wow.....What a great spot! I've seen it at least 6 times and it brings tears to my eyes every time, as it makes me think of my father and how he inspired me, to be the man that I am today..... thanks Dad!

Sally W. from Windham, ME JUNE 24, 2008

Thank you! May everyone be lifted up and know that you are not alone.

Beth H. from Pensacola, Fl JUNE 3, 2008
You Lift Me Up is by Josh Groban. It's a beautiful song that you could hardly turn the on the radio without hearing a few years ago. You should be able to purchase it anywhere or on itunes.

Sharon S. from Hermon, Maine JUNE 1, 2008
I also love the song "You Raise Me Up." Is it available for purchase somewhere? It is so uplifting. I don't usually watch commercials but everytime your spot comes on I stop,watch and listen also sing along.

Jameli from Saudi Arabia APRIL 11, 2008
Just as there are people, friends or loves ones who raise us up, let us also do our part of raising others up till we all reach the top. This video inspires me to appreciate the people I'm surrounded with. Thanks for making it FBL.

Chad W. from Lehi, Ut APRIL 8, 2008
Spots like this give me the strength and courage to keep doing the things that I do, no matter how difficult or how small the financial reward.
