Mariah said: “I am honored to be a part of this effort to support Team USA through this soundtrack. The Olympic Winter Games create once-in-a-lifetime moments for the entire world to see.  It is truly amazing to watch these first-rate athletes compete and give everything they have to reach new levels of achievement. Their actions provide hope and inspiration for everyone.  As artists, we strive to encourage others through our music.”


“The support we’re receiving from these artists and the fans is amazing,” said Evan Lysacek, reigning world champion in men’s figure skating and silver medalist at the 2010 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. “As we prepare to compete in Vancouver, the Team USA Soundtrack will help motivate us to perform at our very best.”


Figure Skater Rachael Flatt said: “Music is an important part of figure skating. It helps create the mood for our performances. Having these wonderful artists write and record songs specifically to encourage the members of Team USA to perform at our best in the biggest competition of our lives is very touching.”  Flatt is the 2010 U.S. Figure Skating Champion, the silver medalist at the 2009 U.S. Figure Skating Championships and the 2008 World Junior Champion.


“The AT&T Team USA Soundtrack truly captures the spirit of the Olympic Winter Games,” said Jason Simpson, director of AT&T Olympic Integration. “Top musical artists are joining together to inspire and encourage Team USA, and fans have the opportunity to connect with and support athletes by downloading the soundtrack. It’s another terrific opportunity to show our support for these amazing and innovative world-class athletes.”
