  1. You can feel that emotion, I feel like this song was a clear dedication for the murderers of her cousin Faith. I pray that they find the people who committed such a terrible deed.

  2. I've hit the note before and I Know how hard it is to do even a toned down version of it, plus she put her own spin on it so good

  4. BROOKE SIMPSON IS THE COUSIN OF FAITH HEDGEPETH, the girl who was murdered. Her murder was never solved and there was a lot of sketchy business in the case. And maybe I'm just reading too much into things but I feel like she is singing to the people who know what really happened, asking them to come forward and give their family some comfort

  5. Still one of the best cover for this song ❤ Very good control of her vocal, dynamic! She still sang her heart out, even with all the difficult teachniques that this song need.

  6. Well, you almost had me fooled
    Told me that I was nothing without you
    Oh, but after everything you've done
    I can thank you for how strong I have become
    'Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell
    I had to learn how to fight for myself
    And we both know all the truth I could tell
    I'll just say this is "I wish you farewell"
    I hope you're somewhere prayin', prayin'
    I hope your soul is changin', changin'
    I hope you find your peace
    Falling on your knees, prayin'
    I'm proud of who I am
    No more monsters, I can breathe again
    And you said that I was done
    Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come
    'Cause I can make it on my own, oh
    And I don't need you, I found a strength I've never known
    I'll bring thunder, I'll bring rain, oh
    When I'm finished, they won't even know your name
    You brought the flames and you put me through hell
    I had to learn how to fight for myself
    And we both know all the truth I could tell
    I'll just say this is "I wish you farewell"
    I hope you're somewhere prayin', prayin'
    I hope your soul is changin', changin'
    I hope you find your peace
    Falling on your knees, prayin'
    Ah sometimes, I pray for you at night, oh
    Someday, maybe you'll see the light
    Whoa oh oh oh, some say, in life, you're gonna get what you give
    But some things only God can forgive
    Yeah! (I hope you're somewhere prayin', prayin')
    I hope your soul is changin', changin'
    I hope you find your peace
    Falling on your knees, prayin'

  7. Brooke Simpson’s cousin, Faith Hedgepeth, was murdered in 2012 at the age of 19. The case is unsolved to this day. This gave me chills, not only because of her beautiful voice, but it’s almost like she’s singing to Faith’s killers.

    RIP Faith Hedgepeth and bless you Brooke ❤️

  9. This was the first time my mum heard this song and although she loved Brooke she disliked the song because she thought it was some religious thing (and she is very anti-religion) but when I explained to her what it was about she started to love the song because she’s also a survivor and frankly it’s an amazing song

  10. Brooke now has more followers than Chloe and Addison on instagram and she placed third, not like it matters but that says something
