– Martina McBride unveiled the new video for her current single, I'm Gonna Love You Through It
Highlighting the feats cancer patients undergo, the visual elements, coupled with the song's lyrics, send a message of hope to survivors and their supporters.
The music video, directed by Roman White, was shot just outside of Nashville in July and features dozens of cancer survivors and supporters, including four well-known celebrities - Robin Roberts (anchor for ABC's Good Morning America); Hoda Kotb (anchor for NBC's Today Show); Grammy award-winning singer Sheryl Crow and ABC journalist Katie Couric.
"I knew it was a song I wanted to record because of the strong message of hope that it sends," said McBride on her choice to include the song on her upcoming album release, "Eleven". This will be McBride's first album on Republic Nashville slated for release on Oct. 11.
"I've heard so many stories about how music can change lives from songs I have recorded like A Broken Wing, Independence Day and Concrete Angel. I believe I'm Gonna Love You Through It will offer hope and inspiration to so many people who are going through or have been through cancer and the people who love them through it. It takes a lot of strength and a lot of love to get through something like that. I think this song says what so many people want to express to their loved ones," said McBride.
Along with local survivors, each celebrity gave a testimonial for the video about how cancer affected their lives. Beginning on Friday, the single will be available for purchase on iTunes.

McBride's version of "Winter Wonderland" is representative of the sort of music she's recorded for this project. It features a full string ...
Stephen King tells us "Talent is cheaper than table salt." And what a shaker-full is contained on Martina McBride's latest. Songwriters? Hillary Lindsey, Sarah Buxton and Liz Rose are amongst the world's finest. For a producer, how about Faith Hill's or Taylor Swift's? And lest we forget - McBride herself possesses the best, hemi-powered soprano of any working singer today. This is gaudy, Dream Team level stuff. So, why isn't it better?

When an established artist is somewhat "in between" albums, a greatest hits package can often bridge that gap. Or a live album. Or perhaps a cringe-worthy Christmas album. If you're Rod Stewart you can create a cottage industry from old standards.
But few decide to try to enhance or pay tribute to old soul songs that can almost never be duplicated. However Martina McBride decided to go down that road on her latest offering with acclaimed producer Don Was helping out. ...
