Songfacts®:

  • This single by Pop-Rock singer Demi Lovato is taken from the Disney Channel movie Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam Soundtrack. Demi is joined on the song by her co-stars Alyson Stoner, Anna Maria Perez de Tagle and Jasmine Richards.
  • In the song, Demi's character, Mitchie Torres, encourages her friends not to give up despite the fact that many of the Camp Rock instructors and campers have been lured to a new state-of-the-art camp across the lake.
  • Demi commented in a video on the singing scenes that she filmed for the movie: "The recording process is really fun," she said. "You need to go to the studio and sing a lot of really great songs and have fun. You get really excited for singing a song and wondering what it's gonna sound like when everybody's voice are on it."

  • Karen from Manchester, NhEven though I'm a grown-up, I love this song. However, the only problem I have is, having young children, every time I hear the line, "This is serious", I hear it in the voice of the ducking on "WonderPets". It's her catchphrase, and she says it with a lisp: "This is Sewwious". Sometimes if my daughters are listening to this song, I'll purposely sing that line that way to make them laugh.
