"Together We Are One" is a pop song written by Guy Chambers, Delta Goodrem and Brian McFadden, produced by Guy Chambers and Richard Flack for the album "" (2006).

It was released as a CD single and digital download in Australia on April 1, 2006 and had success on the charts peaking at number two.

Goodrem states she was "honoured" when she was asked to write a song for the 2006 Commonwealth Games and to take part in the event itself "was such an amazing experience." She states that it is her favourite kind of song to write, with the inspiring lyrics, she says "When I sat down to write the song I was just hoping it was something that people would enjoy." She also wanted to write a tribute to all the participants in the games, "to say after all the toil, and the blood, sweat and tears, the time has finally arrived for them to be rewarded" that "we're all united by this moment."
