This song was specially arranged for a charity concert. The track was produced for John Swan (Swanee) to perform at the concert. After completing the track, Roulf also put his vocals on it as a guide (which is what you are now listening to)

There is some beautiful chord progressions in here and the song is a moving tribute to the original.

The backing vocalist on this track is Olivia McClurkin. Olivia was Whitney Houston's choir director and sister to well known American Gospel leader Donnie McClurken. Olivia passed away after a long struggle with cancer. It was an honour to work with her and a privilege to know her.

As Roulf battles through his own cancer journey, the meaning in this song has become more powerful in more recent times. We hope you enjoy this lovely arrangement.
