The song is performed by ‘Selected of God,’ the choir featured in the Chrysler brand Super Bowl commercial ‘Born of Fire.’ Keeping in the spirit of the ‘Imported from Detroit’ campaign, Eight Mile Style will donate all publishing proceeds from the music download to three local Detroit charities—Abayomi Community Development Corporation, The Yuinon and the Robert S. Shumake Foundation.
