Miley Cyrus, "The Climb"

This week I am writing about Miley Cyrus and her song, "The Climb." Her real name is Destiny Hope Cyrus and she was born November 23, 1992 in Nashville, Tennessee. Her parents nicknamed her, "Smiley", which was then shortened to, "Miley." At the age of eight, she knew she wanted to be an actress. She auditioned for the role "Chloe Stewart" on Hannah Montana. The productors were impressed by her ability to sing and act so at age twelve she got the part for "Miley Stewart", which they named after her. After the success of Hannah Montana began, Miley produced her first single, "Best Of Both Worlds." Then during the second season, she released the album, "Meet Miley." The single, "See you again," was produced on this album, and went to the Billboard Hot 100.  In 2007, Miley launched her Best of Both Worlds Tour. Her opening acts were Jonas Brothers, Aly & AJ, and Everlife. Then in 2008, she released her album, Breakout. She hosted the 2008 CMT Music Awards and Teen
Choice Awards. Later on she starred in the movies, The Last Song and Hannah Montana: The Movie. In the film, she sang her song "The Climb." Now she has another album called Can't Be Tamed and also to be said to be starring in some upcoming movies.

I picked this songs for a few reasons. One, it was my eighth grade class song for our graduation and two, there's so much to say about this song. It reminds me of the journey we take throughout our lives. It's not just achieving things but it's that feeling you get once you have accomplished it. I remember talking about this song at graduation. We talked about how once you are in eighth grade you are at the top of the ladder, then once you go to high school you are going back to the bottom and have to build your way back up again. I find this to be very true. You can see a difference between the seniors and the freshman. But on that way up to the top, you have those obstacles that make you wanna climb back down. But you always find the reason to just keep holding on tight and getting past the obstacle. But sometimes, the climb is the best part because of how much stronger you become. This song definitely has a strong meaning. If you have not listened to it, then definitely check it out on YouTube and check out her personal website. She's not always be my favorite person, but I love this song!
