LeAnn Rimes released her 18th studio album "god's work" on September 16, and stopped by TODAY to perform a brand-new song. After 26 years in the business, her music still has the power to evoke an emotional response from anyone who listens.

The "Blue" singer talked to Country Living about the album, which she began working on in 2019. She revealed, "As I explored all of these different facets of myself, I got to ask some pretty deep questions about my own upbringing, you know, the way we've been programmed as a society. I think really this album is full of unanswered questions."

LeAnn said that "god's work" is full of powerful emotions, from fear and rage to joy and hope. Some of those emotions came through when she made an appearance with Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush.

LeAnn performed her new song, "innocent," at the studio. After the performance, Hoda was clearly moved to tears and gave LeAnn an emotional hug. As she wiped away tears, Hoda said "that was such a beautiful song."

Later, Hoda and Jenna shared photos from LeAnn's visit and wrote, "The stunning, Leann Rimes left us absolutely speechless this morning. We loved celebrating her new album 'God's Work.' It brought tears to our eyes. We love you Leann, you're a gift. 💝"

LeAnn told the hosts the song is about herself as a young girl. LeAnn got emotional when she looked at a picture of herself at 14 years old and explained that she's very proud of her younger self for surviving life as a child star.
