Posted by at 3:22 pm on October 3, 2011

Country singer Martina McBride is lighting up New York City this month, setting the Empire State Building awash in a pink glow to fight breast cancer as she launches an album that breaks new ground.

McBride, who has sung about women’s issues on past tunes including “Independence Day” and “Broken Wing,” will host a private show and benefit called “Martina McBride: Light Up the Sky” at the historic building in midtown Manhattan on October 14. The event will be held in partnership with the Stanford Women’s Cancer Center.

“We want to send a collective message of hope to breast cancer patients, survivors and supporters as we turn one of the world’s most popular landmarks pink,” McBride told Reuters.

The singer’s current single, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It,” is based on a true story about Lily Isaacs, a breast cancer survivor who has been free of the disease for 27 years, something McBride didn’t know when she first heard the tune.

“Eleven” hits retail and online outlets on October 11, and McBride’s performance at the Empire State Building air three days later on Clear Channel Radio web sites.
