The song was inspired by her brother Avery’s struggles with depression.
Haven said that she started writing the song because she felt she had no one to talk to about the pain and as a “last hope” to convince Avery to “stick with it.”
Luckily, she has revealed that her brother is now recovering.
Who is Haven Madison’s father Jason Roy?
Haven isn’t the only musical talent in her family.
Her father, Jason Roy, is the lead singer of the Christian rock band Building 429.
The group was formed in 1999 by Roy and his former bassist Scotty Beshears in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
They are known for hits like “Where I Belong” and “Fear No More”.
The band’s name refers to Ephesians chapter four verse 29.
The New International Version of The Bible states: “Let no unwholesome words come out of your mouth, but only what is helpful to build up others according to their needs, that it may benefit those who hear.”
The band founded their own independent record label, 3rd Wave Music, in 2019 and release their songs under it.
The cast has changed several times, but Roy has been there from the start.
He also played guitar to accompany his daughter on one of her American Idol songs.
