Hudson tells PEOPLE that the track “truly exemplifies the power that music can have in all of our lives.”
She explains, “In my own life and my own art, I have always aimed to move past barriers and step outside my comfort zone as much as possible, and music has always been a tool that has allowed me to do so. This song really showcases the ability that music has in helping people to find strength and clarity.”
