Demi Lovato Releases Live GRAMMYs Performance Of New Song "Anyone"
Following her remarkable 2020 GRAMMYs performance of "Anyone," Lovato released a new version of the song recorded live at the show
Just following her unforgettably touching performance and highly anticipated return to music’s forefront at the 2020 GRAMMYs, Demi Lovato has released a new version of her latest single "Anyone." The surprise release is an extended live recording of "Anyone" taken from the two-time GRAMMY nominee's emotional performance of the song on Music's Biggest Night.
Upon debuting the song on GRAMMY Sunday, "Anyone" broke Billboard’s Hot 100 chart shortly after, emerging at the 34th position. "Anyone" has since amassed over seven million streams and over 40,000 downloads, according to Billboard, making the track Lovato’s first number one on the Digital Song Sales chart and also her 14th top 40 hit.
Shortly after, On Sunday (Feb. 2), Lovato performed an equally remarkable rendition of the U.S. National Anthem for the NFL Super Bowl LIV, accomplishing perhaps one of her biggest career landmarks yet, performance-wise. In a Feb. 7, 2010 tweet, she wrote, "One day, I'm gonna sing the national anthem at a super bowl…”
Coming off of the pair of powerhouse performances, she took to social media to express her gratitude for fan support and announce the GRAMMY performance release of "Anyone."
"Your support has been incredible since the release of 'Anyone.' I’m so blown away by the stories you’ve shared connecting with the song in your own way," she wrote in an Instagram post announcing the track’s release this morning. "I hear you, and thank you for listening."
As Lovato’s GRAMMY performance marked her first time back on stage in almost two years, the release of “Anyone” is the artist’s first single since 2018’s “Sober,” and could hint at an upcoming follow-up to her 2017 album Tell Me You Love Me.
Lovato's "Anyone," recorded live from the 62nd Annual GRAMMYs is now available on all streaming platforms here.

Music Saved My Life: Mental Health Awareness Month 2018
Recognize and celebrate the healing power of music for our mental health
May is Mental Health Awareness Month.
Every year since 1949, the entire month has been reserved to raise awareness about the importance of managing mental health, shed light on the universal struggle of depression, anxiety and other aspects of mental well-being, and encourage people to reach out for help.
The Recording Academy recognizes the healing power of music and how the indescribable feelings of the right song at the right time can be both a sonic salve and an emotive line of communication that tells a listener, "No, you truly are not alone."
Throughout May, we will share important quotes and stories from artists who have made the choice to speak publicly about how their mental health has directly affected their lives, and how the healing power of music has helped them on their path toward a more peaceful, present and mindful life.
Check back daily for inspirational messages from your favorite artists, and each week for more expansive stories about how musicians have addressed their mental health. You'll learn how some of your favorite artists have benefitted from the healing power of music in their own lives, which we hope will serve as inspiration in yours.

Watch Demi Lovato Sing The National Anthem At Super Bowl 2020
Following a touching performance at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards last month, the two-time GRAMMY nominee delivered a powerful rendition of the U.S. national anthem at the big game
Two-time GRAMMY nominee Demi Lovato is known for pouring her heart and soul into each of her songs and live shows, and her performance of the U.S. national anthem at Super Bowl 2020 today (Sunday, Feb. 2) was no different.
Dressed in a stunning, all-white suit, Lovato took on the highly coveted slot with confidence, tackling the song's high notes and powerful vocal melodies with poise and aplomb. Lovato now joins previous GRAMMY winners like Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera and Carrie Underwood among the artists who have performed "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the big game.
In what may seem like a cosmic coincidence, Lovato, who was announced as a guest singer for the big game last month, actually predicted she would one day "sing the national anthem at a Super Bowl" in a tweet she posted on Feb. 7, 2010, nearly 10 years to the day when she finally accomplished that same feat.
The Super Bowl show is the latest major performance for Lovato this year. Last month, she made her grand return to the stage when she delivered a touching performance of her new song, “Anyone,” at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards. Her rendition, her first televised performance following a drug-related medical emergency in 2018, quickly became one of the most unforgettable moments from this year's GRAMMYs.
Other musical highlights from Super Bowl 2020 included a dazzling, star-studded halftime show from Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, which featured surprise performances from Bad Bunny and J Balvin, plus a beautiful rendition of "America the Beautiful" from four-time GRAMMY-winning gospel icon Yolanda Adams.
