I wrote “Faith” after learning about my dear friend Mark's cancer diagnosis. It was a tough spot to be in to watch someone you love wither away before your very eyes. He put up a good fight and faced everyday with a smile. CANCER SUCKS! There is no good way to say that! Sorry. He wanted this song to live on for years after he was gone. He told me "Donna, go do some good with this song and help people feel better about the fight, I'm counting on you."
The song debuted at the Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival before a live audience, at the WSRE Studio-Amped Show, a PBS affiliate on October 7, 2023, coinciding with Mark’s birthday weekend. Deeply moved by the song, Mark urged Donna to create a music video, as he wanted to share its message with the world.
