The music video will feature exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the song's recording session.

"I was so touched when Diane Warren came to me and said she wrote a song with OWN in mind," said Oprah Winfrey. "And then to have Jennifer Hudson and Jennifer Nettles bring the song to life with their stunning collaboration... what a gift."

"'You Will' is such a powerful song that I am so very proud to be a part of," said Jennifer Hudson. "It is always incredible to work with the incomparable Diane Warren, who is consistently creating music that so many people can relate to. I was honored to come together with Jennifer Nettles and create something special for OWN, which stands for so many wonderful things."

"I have known Oprah for years and love to see this wonderful woman at the OWN network making it so successful," said Diane Warren. "The sentiment of my song, 'You Will,' which is Oprah and her network's new theme song, is that you should never give up on your dreams, own every breath, own every minute, go live a life that's got no limits. You can do anything. It's as simple as never think you won't, and you will. Jennifer Hudson and Jennifer Nettles perform the song beautifully. I am very proud of this song and the message it sends."

"I am hugely inspired by the message of 'You Will,'" said Jennifer Nettles. "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."

"You Will" was arranged by Grammy Award-winning producers The Underdogs and Peter Stengaard and produced by The Underdogs.
