Serena Ryder's 'Together We Are One' Pan Am Song Is The Anthem We Need

TORONTO - Canadian artist Serena Ryder has lent her voice to the official song of the Toronto 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games.

The Games' organizing committee and official broadcaster CBC announced the release of "Together We Are One" in a news release Thursday. The song was selected from a pool of 70 submissions.

The English version of "Together We Are One" was recorded by Ryder, a multiple Juno Award-winning singer/songwriter.

"'Together We Are One' unites everybody, regardless of who they're rooting for," Ryder said in a statement. "It's their song. It's everyone's song."

The song was written by Murray Daigle, Jasmine Denham and Bobby John, and produced by Daigle.

French and Spanish adaptations of "Together We Are One" were also recorded.
