Boy band Emblem3 performed the song during their first live show on on the second season of The X Factor USA
and also covered it for their debut album, Nothing To Lose
. Drew Chadwick of Emblem3 explained to Artist Direct
what attracted him to the tune. "Well, Matisyahu is a huge inspiration of mine," he said, "because he's in the pop industry, but he's also a really spiritual dude. If you can make that work, be on a spiritual journey and still thrive in the pop industry, that's incredible. He's basically preaching about global warming and people coming together to each other's aid, which is what I want to do in my life and with my musical gift. That song is really inspiring. It's so positive, uplifting, and empowering. When we get to play it, it's magic at the shows."
