Five artists, including Dolly Parton, Sara Evans, Monica, Jordin Sparks, and Rita Wilson, are helping in the fight against breast cancer by releasing the new single, “PINK.” The collaboration benefits Susan G. Komen, the world’s leading breast cancer research organization.
“PINK” was co-written by Victoria Shaw, Erin Kinsey and Jodi Marr, and produced by Shaw. The song will be distributed via Brighter Day Records.
Each year breast cancer kills more than 42,000 women and men in the U.S. alone, and one in 8 women will be diagnosed at some point in her lifetime.
“This is such a beautiful song of hope,” said Parton. “I’m honored to join with these powerful women to help support Susan G. Komen’s life-saving work.”
“Breast cancer is a leading cause of death among African American women! My goal is to change that,” added Monica. “My life and loved ones have been directly impacted by this disease and I want us all to live in a world without breast cancer. Let’s make pink just another color.”
“As a younger woman, I know that breast cancer can still be a possibility,” said Sparks. “Through all of us working together, we can change the future so that younger generations never have to face breast cancer. This song paints a vision of when that day comes.”
“The song is not just for someone who is a survivor or going through breast cancer treatment, it is for anyone who loves someone who has been impacted by breast cancer,” added Wilson. “That’s what I love about the song.”
“After performing at the Opry Goes Pink last year, I’m thrilled to be supporting Susan G. Komen again this year in a very big way,” said Evans. “There is something magical that happens when women band together to have a positive impact on the world for our sisters and our daughters.”
“In a single moment, a person’s life changes forever – there is life before breast cancer, and life after,” noted Paula Schneider, CEO of Susan G. Komen and a breast cancer survivor. “We are extremely honored that these powerful women have leant their time and talents to help us advance our mission and give a moment of hope to everyone impacted by breast cancer. Together, we will save lives and get closer to a world without breast cancer.”
