ATLANTA (KGUN9-TV) - A few minutes after college basketball's national championship is decided tonight at the Georgiadome, you'll hear an iconic song.

At the same time you'll almost certainly see some of the great moments of the 2013 NCAA tournament - Wichita State's improbable Final Four run, Marquette's buzzer-beating wins on the way to the Elite 8, the way Florida-Gulf Coast captured the nation's fancy as it upset Georgetown and San Diego State.

But did you know the song was written on a napkin? Buzzfeed tells you more about that story.

Scroll through the image gallery to see videos of  "One Shining Moment" including all four artists who performed it.
