Four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year Martina McBride has teamed with the National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline (NTDAH) in a new program called My Time to Shine, that was announced in conjunction with the release of her new album, Shine. As the mother of three daughters, McBride is passionate about the need to increase awareness about teen dating abuse and how to develop healthy relationships.
“Young people today have more opportunities to make decisions about their lives, and it places a lot of pressure on them early,” McBride said. “If we can help them to form healthy relationships at an earlier age in life, they will make better choices for life partners, and as a mom, I want to be part of that.”
My Time to Shine was developed for Martina’s Shine CD and tour around the concept that the teen years should be a young person’s time to shine, discover who they are how to have healthy relationships. Since releasing her chart-topping hit, “Independence Day” in 1994, McBride has been involved in fundraising for several programs that benefit women. The singer is promoting both the awareness program and the new CD with a slew of television appearances. In addition, McBride will speak out in public service announcements that will be shown at her concert venues when her tour begins in October. My Time to Shine merchandise will also be sold at McBride’s concerts to raise funds to benefit the teen helpline.
