Here I Am

Album: Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron (2002)
Charted: 5
  • "Here I Am" is the opening track from the animated film Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron, which was released in 2002. The song introduces the film's somewhat offbeat hero, the feisty stallion, and pays homage to the then yet untamed Wild West.
  • As well as winning an ASCAP Award and being nominated for Best Original Song in the Golden Globe Awards (losing out to Eminem's "Lose Yourself"), it reached number one in three non-English speaking countries: Azerbaijan, Portugal and Taiwan. It was also recorded in Swedish (though not by Adams), and the instrumental version was used by Canada in its successful bid for the 2010 Winter Olympics.
  • The sheet music is credited Words and Music by Bryan Adams, Gretchen Peters and Hans Zimmer, Arranged by Ed Lajeski, and was published by Cherry Lane Music, copyright 2002 by SKG Songs and Badams Music. Check out our interview with Bryan Adams and our interview with Gretchen Peters. >>
