Power Women Summit 2019: Duo opened WrapWomen’s two-day event with their powerful track
“This Is Us” star Chrissy Metz kicked off WrapWomen’s Power Women Summit Thursday night with a live performance of the original song “I’m Standing With You,” accompanied by Diane Warren on guitar and a girls choir. The song was written by Warren for the feature film “Breakthrough,” which starred Metz.

Following her opening number, Metz sat down with TheWrap founder and editor in chief Sharon Waxman to talk about her experiences in the entertainment industry, including whether or not she feels pressure to lose weight from those who still value thin talent. Readers can find her answer here.
