One of the most inspirational songs I know. I just love singing it and it’s great to be part of this slightly more up tempo / harder rock version of the classic song. Although the original song performed by John Parr was written for the 80’s brat pack movie “St. Elmo’s Fire”, the inspiration for the song actually came from the story of Canadian athlete Rick Hansen who became paralyzed, and from March 21, 1985 to May 22, 1987, Rick and his team wheeled over 40,000 km through 34 countries on his Man in Motion World Tour raising awareness about the potential of people with disabilities, creating accessible and inclusive communities, and finding a cure for spinal cord injuries.
