McLachlan was inspired to write "Hold On" after watching a Canadian documentary titled A Promise Kept.[1] Speaking to the Huffington Post in 2014, she said: "I saw a documentary on a woman whose husband contracted the HIV virus and it was a great and tragic love story. She took care of him up until he died and her passion, empathy and strength was inspirational."[2]
