One of those who witnessed the concert was Eric Zichella, who spoke to CNN to share his experiences. He said, “The song rendition was the most memorable moment of the event.”

The lyrics of the song was like an ode to the ravaged city, and the rhythm felt like it was the perfect song to play during a camping night. It had lyrics had statements such as dreaming to get back to Houston when it had no problems, a harmony that brings the place together and sending love to the city.

The lyrics continued with statements such as praying for the city to make it through the tough times, and nothing will topple to strength of Houston. Martin said during the Miami event that it was a new song, and it was exclusively played during the concert.
