Demi Lovato - Skyscraper

"Skyscraper" is a song performed by American recording artist Demi Lovato. The song was released on July 12, 2011, as the lead single from her third studio album Unbroken . The song was written by Toby Gad, Lindy Robbins and Kerli Kõiv and produced by Gad. The song was inspired by a picture of the apocalypse, in which the world was in ruins and among collapsed buildings, one skyscraper was still standing. Kerli originally recorded the song, before Gad offered the song to Lovato, who wanted to record and felt both she and her fans could relate to it. When the song was recorded, Lovato was very emotional which triggered outbursts and caused her to start crying. In November 2010, Lovato entered a treatment facility to deal with her personal struggles. After completed her treatment and leaving the treatment facility in late January 2011, Lovato re-recorded the song, but kept the original recording as she felt it was "symbolic" to her. According to Lovato, the song represents the journey she had been on the previous year. (Wikipedia)
