This is the theme song for the 2011 comedy-drama film The Help. The movie is an adaptation of Kathryn Stockett's 2009 novel of the same name, and the Underdogs produced tune was written for the movie's character Aibileen Clark, a middle-aged maid living in Jackson, Mississippi in the '60s. According to the story, Aibileen has spent her life raising white children, and recently lost her only son. Blige sings about letting go and moving forward. She croons, "I am so glad the worst is over, I can start living now/ I feel like I can do anything, and finally I am not afraid to breath/ Anything you said to me and everything you do/ You can't deny the truth, 'cause I am the living proof."
"The beautiful thing about these women is that they were very smart," says Blige of the film's characters. "They chose to walk in love and forgiveness. To speak to so many women with this song means a lot to me. I wanted to be involved with this film, because I think we need to encourage each other more, we are here to tell a story."
In The Beatles "When I'm 64," Paul McCartney asks a woman if she'll still be there for him when he's 64. In 2006, he got his answer when shortly before his 64th birthday, he and Heather Mills separated.
