The singer came out with the song after watching the coverage of the shooting on TV. Written within the lyrics was the verse "We'll fight this together, we'll be strong together, stand together, pray together. Rise up, when you feel you can't go on, rise up, and all of your hope is gone, rise up, when you're weak and you can't be strong, rise up." The clip can be seen here.
