Charlie Kristensen said: "It is an amazing feeling to have a single released and especially one that is so spectacular and sincere. I want people to associate the single with hope, determination and strength especially at this current time. I want everyone to recognise this song and for it to help people understand life isn't perfect, we aren't perfect but we are amazing just the way we are."
