Songfacts®:

  • Francesca Battistelli sings here about how God knows her name: "You write the songs you need to hear.," she explained. "This was about being transparent and going deeper spiritually. To me, it's an anthem. How many of us feel defined by what people say about us? But God calls us by name. His words for us are: chosen, free, forgiven, beautiful, wanted, loved. THAT is the only voice we should be listening to."
  • This was Francesca Battistelli's third chart-topper on Billboard's Christian Airplay chart following 2009's "Free To Be Me" and 2014's "Write Your Story."
  • The 12-minute-long music video was directed by Joseph Snyder and produced by Ben Kasica, who is the former lead guitarist for Skillet. The clip tells the stories of four totally broken women, who went into the Mercy Ministry program and emerged whole and healthy, both spiritually and physically.
