"This Is Me", is a song by Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas from the Disney Channel original movie Camp Rock and was featured on the film's soundtrack as the fourth and final single. It premiered on Radio Disney on June 6, 2008 and was released by Walt Disney Records onto the iTunes Store on June 17, 2008. A live version is also included on Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience. The single has sold 901,000 digital copies to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The song was written, produced and mixed by Adam Watts and Andy Dodd.
"This Is Me" is the first song that Demi Lovato's character, Mitchie Torres, sang in Camp Rock with Joe Jonas's character, Shane Gray. Mitchie wrote the song in the beginning of the film, and was later heard (in an acoustic version on piano), but not seen, by Shane, who set out to search for the girl behind the amazing voice. After most people performed already in the "Final Jam" session, Mitchie sang the song (original version) and Shane saw her and sang part of the song he wrote, "Gotta Find You". The two songs are combined to make the original version, as featured on the Camp Rock soundtrack CD.
Lovato also recorded a Spanish version of the song titled "Lo Que Soy" (literally meaning What I Am), using the acoustic version of the song, released on the deluxe edition of Don't Forget and as a video featuring her singing the song while playing the piano.
