The U.S. Women's National Team weren't the only winners on hand in Canada over the Fourth of July weekend. During the FIFA Women's World Cup, American Idol season 14 winner Nick Fradiani was on hand to perform his coronation song and first single on Big Machine Records, the anthemic, sing-songy "Beautiful Life."
As a part of his American Idol win, Fradiani's "Beautiful Life" was used as the official anthem of the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, Billboard reports, and the epic ballad was used in FOX promos for the major sporting event. As the American women were set to go into victory, Fradiani performed the track in Vancouver on July 4.
As Fradiani cut through the music with on-point vocals, he walked around the stage with a level of comfort of a seasoned musician and Idol winner. The new performance swagger is long way from his timid first days on Idol, with Fradiani perfectly at ease on the large Vancouver stage.

Fradiani not only sang the anthem for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the singer-songwriter also seemed to be in Vancouver as a fan of the U.S. team. In a short promo video for FOX before the big win on Sunday (July 5), Fradiani and his friend “Justin Beaver” wished the Women’s National Team good luck.
