The 40-year-old Australian singer, who was previously filmed breaking down on stage as she dedicated her hit 'Titanium' to the 49 LGBT people and allies who lost their lives in the massacre, unveiled new single 'The Greatest' today (September 6), along with a stunning video which once again stars 13-year-old dance prodigy Maddie Ziegler.
