"Roar," with lyrics, "I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire/‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar/Louder, louder than a lion," has "taken on a life of its own," Perry told "Good Morning America" recently. Staples joined her campaign, "Make Roar Happen," to donate $1 million in funding for teachers and classrooms through DonorsChoose.org. Meanwhile, Perry kicked off her North American Prismatic Tour Sunday.
