He explains…

Shortly after that he saw Serena in Miami, who walked up to him and said, ‘Where’s my song?’   To which he answered: ‘Don’t worry, your song is coming!

About the film, Wyclef  went on to say: “So automatically, when it was time for the documentary, naturally they would find me, thanks to my relationship with Venus and my understanding of the struggle and where they came from. They knew I could contribute something.”

“Heart of a Warrior”:

What the songwriter had in mind was to convey an understanding and feeling of struggle. In his own words he explains it this way:

“Even if someone is not into sports — when they hear this song —I wanted them to feel triumph.VenusSerenaOlympicGoldArmAroundEachOTHER

That’s what I get from Serena and Venus. They’re excellent at what they do, they win a lot,

but the road has not been easy,” said Wyclef.VENUS AND SERENA WILLIAMS AT WIMBLEDON SEMIFINALS
