This ballad from The Greatest Showman carries a powerful message of the inherent worth of all humans that resonates far beyond the context of the film's story. The arrangement was commissioned for a video project in which a women's barbershop chorus collaborated with a charity for Downes Syndrome Awareness week. It was thus designed such that people who knew the original could sing along with what they knew while the chorus provided an a cappella accompaniment.

It also works as a stand-alone arrangement, with an optional double descant for the final passage to add extra opulence to the ending.
