Yesterday, GRAMMY, Billboard Music, Stellar, and Dove Award-winning musician and songwriter Tasha Cobbs Leonard appeared on Good Morning America with co-anchor Robin Roberts, GMA3 co-anchor T.J. Holmes, and senior meteorologist Rob Marciano for a special live tribute in Louisiana – sharing stories of resilience and what it means to be “America Strong.”
GMA tapped Tasha to surprise a man named Sam Mamou, a special education teacher and father of five, volunteers at his church, leading the food and supply distribution of the church’s hurricane relief efforts. His own home was recently damaged in Hurricane Ida, but he is focused on ensuring the community gets back on its feet.
As part of the tribute, Tasha performed her latest original single, “Gotta Believe,” an anthem about trusting God in times of uncertainty.

Tasha Cobbs Leonard originally recorded “Gotta Believe” as part of NPR Morning Edition’s Song Project, a series launched during lockdown to provide an outlet for artists to write and perform an original song as a way to reflect the times. In an interview about the song’s origins, Tasha opens up about some of her struggles, including losing family and friends to the COVID pandemic.
