Has [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Martina McBride[/lastfm] lost her mind, or does she think she is a female David Copperfield now? Martina is not kidding however, when she says she plans to ‘turn the Empire State Building PINK!’
Martina has not lost her mind, and she will turn the Empire State Building PINK, on October 14th, in an ongoing effort to raise awareness of breast cancer prevention. McBride plans to combine her public service work with promotion of her new album, hosting a pink-carpet event, “Martina McBride: Light Up the Sky,” at the historic Manhattan skyscraper to promote her 11th studio album “Eleven,” which comes out Oct. 11th.
Martina has always used her fame and talent, using her music to raise awareness for women’s issues like domestic abuse with “Independence Day’‘ and “Broken Wing.” She is now launching her new work, by taking an Amtrak train across the country, stopping in 11 cities to meet with fans and breast cancer survivors and perform mini concerts.[photogallerylink id=87293 align=right]
Martina’s latest single, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” directly addresses the fears that strike a woman facing cancer, and how the love and support of a loved one, can sometimes be the BEST medicine! What a POWERFUL and heart wrenching song!
