This song was written by Carey and Walter Afanasieff. But, after a few runs in the studio, Mariah Carey didn’t feel Hero matched her style, so she forfeited it to Gloria Estefan. After some convincing, lyric changes, and adjustments, Sony Studio got the Ballard to align with Mariah Carey’s taste and personality. While the song has received some criticism, it’s one of the most profound Mariah Carey songs she’s ever sung.
