Carly Patterson is not just an Olympic gold medal gymnast, she's also a singer-songwriter, which made her latest single, 'Here I Am,' a perfect fit for Make It Or Break It.
The song, which can be found on Carly's debut album, 'Back to the Beginning,' is currently being featured on commercials for the new season of the show, which premieres on January 4. Check out the video on Carly's site here.
"I was so excited ABC wanted to use my song, because I specifically wrote it about my entire gymnastics journey, which I think fits so perfect with the show and what the characters are going through on the show," Carly tells JSYK. "It's definitely my most favorite song I've ever written, so to have it be used for a TV show is so rad!"

Are you a fan of Make It or Break It?
Yes, I am a fan of MIOBI :) I think its very cool that they have a show about gymnastics on TV!!
Do you think the stunts look realistic?
I definitely think the stunts look real. I know [they] have real gymnasts to do the stunts, so yes, you can tell it's real gymnastics, which I really like!!
Which character on there do you relate to the most: Lauren, Emily, Payson or Kaylie?
I related to Emily right from the start because she came into a new gym and the girls were giving her a little bit of a hard time. I liked her because she was a little shy, but still confident in her gymnastics, and I felt like that's how I was when I first had to start at a new gym.
Any chance you would guest star?
HECK YES I TOTALLY WANT TO GUEST STAR I THINK THAT WOULD BE SO FREAKING AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! =)
What are you working on right now?
Right now Im just working on promoting my new CD, 'Back To The Beginning - The Deluxe Version' that has 'Here I Am' on it! I am also traveling all around doing radio and TV and watching the TV to try and see the MIOBI commercial I'm in. Hehe!!
