Just Stand Up

More than a dozen of the world’s most accomplished female recording artists – a cast that includes Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Fergie, Sheryl Crow, Miley Cyrus, Melissa Etheridge, Ashanti, Natasha Bedingfield, Keyshia Cole, Ciara, Leona Lewis, LeAnn Rimes, and Carrie Underwood – have joined together for “Just Stand Up,” an unprecedented charity single in support of Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C).

“Just Stand Up” was produced by Antonio “L.A.” Reid, Chairman, Island Def Jam Music Group, and Kenny 'Babyface' Edmonds after a powerful and inspiring meeting with the women who organized the Stand Up To Cancer campaign (whom Reid affectionately dubbed the “magnificent seven”).

Stand Up To Cancer is a fund-raising campaign that was broadcast simultaneously on ABC, CBS and NBC on 5th of September, 08. Funds will be administered by the American Association for Cancer Research, the largest scientific organization in the world focusing on every aspect of high-quality, innovative cancer research.

Cancer takes one person every minute. One life in a moment. They are our brothers, our sisters, our fathers and mothers, our husbands and wives, our best friends, our children, ourselves. Every day in America 1500 people die and yet the means to save them are literally within our reach. To wait any longer for someone else to save our lives and the lives of those we love is unforgivable.

I hope that this campaign, although not widespread to this part of my world, will identify a new way to develop breakthroughs that will END cancer. Stand Up To Cancer is more than a rallying cry. It is a galvanizing force created to urgently move cancer research forward.

This is a song for my aunty, who is a cancer survivor for more than 6 years now. She inspires me about LIVING more than anyone else. If you know someone with cancer, inspire them with this song.
