Before you listen, here's the intel about that the song and the clip that you need to process and absorb.
"My best friend's mother had died from Stage Four breast cancer. She was diagnosed and passed away less than 24 hours later," Lewis told us about the inspiration behind the song. "Like so many other parent-child relationships, theirs was truly amazing and sacred. I was asked to perform her favorite song at her funeral, 'Teach Your Children,' by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. That song and that entire experience gave me the opportunity to write 'I’m Coming Home.'"
Wow. That's some supremely powerful stuff. With that in mind, take a close listen to the song. The information about the song's inspiration and origins also makes the immediacy of watching Lewis perform the song that much more impactful.
