The song was posted early by Grace on 1-feb-18, but later deleted.

“That’s one of those songs that I wish I wrote. If I had to choose a song that I wish I wrote and was mine, it would be that song. I never know why I like a song, but that song is so beautiful. Certain songs just touch your heart for some reason. That’s the only song I have discovered [that she feels like that about] I found it, I heard it playing – I forgot where I was, but it was somewhere small, it was like a store o something, and it was playing and I was like “Oh my god!”. SO, as I was hearing it, I was trying to remember the words I was hearing – “take me to the river, I want to go, goooo”. SO, I got home and looked it up. Interviewer: Did you start to learn it immediately after? Grace: No, I just listened to it, and I wanted to cover it, so I told my mom, I need an extra song, just tell them [her manager], I want to sin g this song. And then they were like: “Oh, you can sing it for this” [mimes going crazy with joy].”
