Written for and dedicated to the memory of Ryan White, a haemophiliac who was diagnosed with the AIDS virus aged eleven years, and who died just after turning eighteen in April 1990.
Michael performed this on 19th January 1993, at An American Reunion - The 52nd Presidential Inaugural Gala, for the incoming President , Bill Clinton. Michael, as well as dedicating the song to his late friend Ryan, used the occasion to speak out in favour of funding AIDS-related research:
"He is gone, but I want his life to have meaning beyond his passing. It is my hope, President-elect Clinton, that you and your administration commit the resources needed to eliminate this awful disease that took my friend, and ended so many promising lives before their time."
