The song you hear every morning that kicks off The Glenn Beck Program was written by David Osmond, a friend of Glenn's. But not everyone associated with the project is a friend --- or even a fan of Glenn's.
"The people that are singing in this song, some of them absolutely hate my guts," Glenn said Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program.
So what made them change their minds and agree to sing Glenn's new theme song? The lyrics and meaning:
I know we don't see everything in the same way
But I know we won't be really free if we don't stay united
'Cause divided we will fall for anything, it's true
So I have decided I'll stand for you
And I will . . .
I will make a stand
I will raise my voice
I will hold your hand
'Cause we are one.
I will beat my drum.
I have made my choice
We will overcome
'Cause we are one
"When they read the words of the song and said, 'This is what Glenn Beck is going to be talking about?' They said 'yes.' They all signed on. Because I think this is what people are really hungry for," Glenn said.
The song is about principles, and people coming together and lifting each other up despite their differences.
The version you hear at the beginning of the radio program is the original, featuring Jenn Blosil who made the Top 24 of this year's American Idol. But there's another version --- with children's voices --- that Glenn played last night on TV, following the events in Brussels.
How can we come back to a place to where we can be one? There used to be a time when our political differences did not define us. What's the secret to getting back there?
"There seems to be . . . no place we can go anymore. There's no place where you can actually have your opinion," Glenn said. "Have you been to Facebook? There's no place that you can go without being shouted down, without being threatened."
How do we possibly get back to a place where we can unite? By returning to principles and placing them above politics, parties and personalities.
"But that can't happen --- I can't beat my drum for you, I can't say we'll overcome, I can't join you --- if we don't have principles involved," Glenn said. "Otherwise, I'd be marching with Bill Ayers who is also not for Trump. I will not march with Bill Ayers. Why? I'm not one with him. Because I don't have the same principles.
So let's unite behind principles. If we don't find our shared principles then we will fall for anything --- and tear each other apart in the process.

Belgium is observing three days of national mourning after 34 people were killed in a twin suicide blast at Zaventem Airport and a further bomb attack at Maelbeek Metro Station. Two brothers are thought to have carried out the airport attack and an international manhunt is underway for a third suspect. The attacks come just days after a key suspect in the Paris attacks, Salah Abdeslam, was captured in Brussels. (Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)
