The Empire State Building will mix an old tradition with a new happening Friday as the iconic New York City landmark will host a private concert for the first time in history. The building will be lit bright pink in an effort to raise awareness for breast cancer as Grammy-winning singer Martina McBride performs.
The singer wraps up her album release week for Eleven, her 11th studio album, with a pink carpet event at the legendary landmark. Her latest single, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It,” is a powerful tale about a woman undergoing breast cancer.
“The first time I heard ‘I’m Gonna Love You Through It’ I got chills from my head to my toes. I’ve heard from so many people that this song has touched their lives,” the country artist said.
