Various versions of the song "There's a Place for Us" are featured in international versions of the soundtrack, used to promote artists signed to Sony Music in different marketing regions. Many of these artists resulted from reality TV talent shows such as American Idol, in the case of Carrie Underwood, X Factor in the UK for Joe McElderry, and Swedish Idol in the case of E.M.D.
Joe McElderry recorded the song for a United Kingdom release. It was released on December 6, 2010 as the b-side to McElderry's "Someone Wake Me Up" where it sold over 7,000 copies. Due to Sony Music's tight recording schedule, McElderry accidentally sang "king and queen" in the chorus instead of the printed lyric, "kings and queens" (referring to the kings and queens of Narnia), although attempts were made to electronically correct this in post-production.
On November 26, 2010 a music video for the single was released prior to the official single release. The video features the trio performing in a dark room where they are walking on water with pictures of the movie around them, as well as cut scenes from the movie itself.
