"I hope this song will inspire people, especially my fans in the Philippines, to never give up no matter what challenges life throws at you," said Rosado. "This song symbolizes healing and strength and each person who buys my song is supporting Project HOPE's efforts to send medicines and supplies for thousands of people who are still suffering after Typhoon Haiyan."

Rosado said the song was his way of giving back to his Filipino fans who sent him thousands of messages of support on social media during his run on American Idol. He credits these loyal fans for inspiring him to build a successful career as a recording artist after Idol.

The Virginia-based NGO Project HOPE has been deploying medical volunteers to the remote Panay Island in the Western Visayas region and the Camotes Islands in the Philippines. Project HOPE has also shipped over $7.3 million in donated medicines, generators, First Aid kits, and surgical equipment.
"There is still much work to be done in the Philippines to improve health care for millions of people. Typhoon Haiyan severely compromised many health facilities, and people are still traumatized by this tragedy," said John P. Howe III, President and CEO of Project HOPE.

Project HOPE has played a crucial role in saving lives in regions hit by natural disasters over much of the last decade, in Haiti, Indonesia, Japan, China and other parts of Southeast Asia.

Rosado ultimately chose to partner with Project HOPE because of its legacy of providing health care to underserved communities. The NGO first arrived in the region over 50 years ago, aboard the SS HOPE, the first peacetime hospital ship. Project HOPE currently has health education programs in the region and worldwide.
