  • Alicia Keys takes her fans to church with this uplifting song where she prays to her savior for protection and forgiveness. It is an entirely different track to the much covered Leonard Cohen tune of the same name.
  • Keys debuted the track during her appearance on the May 7, 2016 episode of Saturday Night Live. She also performed "In Common" on the show.
  • The song featured in the trailer to the short film, Let Me In about American refugees, which was released by Keys' We Are Here campaign with World Refugee Day.
