Grammy Award-winning artist Lecrae and singer Tori Kelly recently released a music video of Ill Find You, a single written in support of youths and loved ones fighting cancer. Lecrae, a Christian hip-hop recording artist, often refers to God in the lyrics while encouraging those afflicted with the disease to hold on.

"Life is a precious gift, a gift we often take for granted until it is threatened, the YouTube description of the lyric video says. At the time of this song's composition, some of our loved ones were battling cancer. We wanted to encourage them to hold on and tell them we are here waiting, hoping, praying and fighting with them.

The song was released in support of St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital and has so far raised over $11,000 to cover patients treatment, travel, housing or food.

Lecrae won two Grammy Awards in 2015 and one Grammy Award in 2013 for his Christian music and openly thanked God for his success.
