Mauboy's' performance comes shortly after the premiere of her music video for the new single. After her emotional performance during the Channel Seven talent show, host Ricki-Lee asked Mauboy about the inspiration behind her new song. "This song means so much to me first of all, and this song really comes fro mym family so I wanted to write something that was so authentic and personal and I've never really done that before with any of my music, so I guess really this is about growth for me at this stage. "With this song, the reaction has been so unbelievable. every moment that I sing it I feel that everyone's connecting to it in their own way. I just want to thank you all for your love and support on this song," Jessica told the crowd.
