Warren replied, "I remember I didn't look at her until I sang "Proud Mary," because I thought if I didn't go further in this project I at least wanted to be able to tell my grandkids this happened. I looked at her and she was singing along and dancing, and I went, 'It's okay. It's okay, it's okay.'"
