Envisioning a world without breast cancer, some of country music’s leading ladies joined forces with iconic R&B singer Monica and American Idol star Jordin Sparks to help make this new song a reality.
Titled “Pink” to honor the color famously linked to the research to end breast cancer by the Susan G. Komen foundation, this new single embodies moving lyrics and a captivating sound that’s sure to grab any listener’s ear.
As described in the official press release, “‘Pink’ provides listeners with hope for a future when no one loses someone they love to breast cancer and pink is just another color.”
Dolly Parton joins fellow country singers Sara Evans and Rita Wilson as well as Monica and Jordin Sparks for this new collaboration. Rita Wilson herself is a breast cancer survivor.
Each of the artists had something to say about what it meant to participate in a song of this magnitude…
“This is such a beautiful song of hope,” said Dolly 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 Jordin 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 Rita 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 Sara 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.”
The song is available now wherever music is sold or streamed and will go to benefit Susan G. Komen – the world’s leading nonprofit breast cancer organization.
