While it only reached as high as sixty-one on the Billboard Hot-Selling Soul Singles chart upon its initial release,  it has gone on to become one of the singer's ature anthems.
LaBelle reluctantly carried on with a solo career with the support of then-husband Armstead Edwards, who ed on as her personal manager. The song was a tribute to the couple's only child, Zuri Edwards. The song was one of the last to be recorded for LaBelle's debut self-titled solo album. Ellison was a longtime background musician for Labelle and had befriended the singer following Labelle's split.
The lyrics were by Edwards and LaBelle themselves. Edwards and LaBelle wrote on Labelle albums together. The majority of the song was recorded under E major. Rubinson, who produced the song, included rhythm guitarbassdrums and strings. Ellison played piano on the song and some of the background vocals were handled by The Waters and members of The Valentinos Bobby Womack 's former family group. One of its members, Cecil Womackwould later collaborate with LaBelle on her material with Philadelphia International Records in the early eighties.
While the majority of the song was arranged as a pop ballad, gospel elements were included. This inclusion wouldn't be noticed until LaBelle's live performances of the song, which she and Ellison arranged. The success of the song in its early years was due to LaBelle's live performances of the song.
When she first performed the song in her first solo concert in LondonLaBelle received a standing ovation, she received a similar one when she performed the song on TV the first time on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert as the last song she performed before leaving the stage. The song received radio airplay on urban radio stations, which still continues today, and is regarded as one of LaBelle's ature songs.
One of the covers of the song was from singer Sylvesterrecorded in San Francisco for his live album Living Proof. While he dedicated the song to LaBelle, it was clear that it was a love about him and The Weather Girls. Faith Evans did a live version paying tribute to LaBelle in Record Research.
