“You Will” is the first collaboration between Nettles – a longtime Atlantan – and Hudson. The song will also be heard during Tuesday’s 9 p.m. season finale of “The Haves and the Have Nots” on OWN and will live stream (along with exclusive behind-the-scenes video footage) on Oprah.com.
“I am hugely inspired by the message of ‘You Will,’” Nettles said in a statement. “Like the OWN network, this song encourages us all to boldly dream. Yet again Diane Warren was able to capture, and orchestrate, this beautiful theme of believing in oneself, and to offer us a song as its anthem. I was honored to be invited to sing with such a powerful talent as Jennifer Hudson. I am thrilled to be able to give voice to this wonderful song with such a gifted duet partner as Jennifer, and to celebrate OWN through music.”
