Any way to keep just one word of text stay visible in white when the rest of the screen fades to black?

Hopefully I can explain this well enough that you can visualise what I mean!

So at the end of the scene, I have the last bit of text on screen, and I can make everything fade to black... what I’d like to do is have one word of the text, written in white, stay visible on the screen for a few seconds (or until the user clicks), when everything else turns to black. So essentially you’re left with just that one word on a black background.

Is there any way to make this happen? Thank you in advance for any help!

Obvious solution would be to display separate Text displayable with the words you want on some layer and apply Fade transition to all other layers.
