2015 Music Video
Every fall, Frogs for the Cure produces a music video with a song recognized as an anthem of courage for anyone who has been touched by breast cancer. This annual program at Texas Christian University (TCU) is now in its 11th year to enhance awareness of breast cancer, support survivors and their families, and raise funds for Susan G. Komen®. This year, Frogs for the Cure is sharing its uplifting message from soaring heights for the thousands of strong women and men around the country who have battled breast cancer. The 2015 music video will feature the iconic 1960s song “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” performed by NBC’s “The Voice” finalists, Luke Wade and Mia Z.
Wade and Mia Z’s version of the song will be available for purchase on iTunes on Tuesday, September 1, and through October 2016, the proceeds of each download will be donated to Komen.
“TCU Frogs for the Cure and Susan G. Komen are doing great work,” said Wade, a season 7 finalist of “The Voice.” “I watched both of my grandmothers struggle with breast cancer when I was growing up. It is such an honor and privilege to lend my voice to this cause which has had a personal impact on me.”
“Being a part of TCU Frogs for the Cure means a lot to me,” said Mia Z, a season 8 finalist of “The Voice.” “Breast cancer has touched each and every one of us in some kind of way, so we must join Frog forces and continue to fight for the cure!”
Scenes for this year’s music video will be shot on the TCU campus on August 30 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Breast cancer survivors, the entire TCU campus and the Fort Worth community are invited to participate by registering at frogsforthecure.tcu.edu/events. Video shoot participants must wear a Frogs for the Cure 2015 t-shirt, which is now available for purchase for $15 at TCU’s Barnes & Noble Bookstore; $6 of each purchase will benefit Susan G. Komen Greater Fort Worth.
The sixth annual music video, which will also feature scenes shot in Los Angeles and Montana, will debut at the 11th annual Frogs for the Cure home football game between TCU and West Virginia University on Thursday, October 29. It will be available to view online following the game at youtube.com/frogsforthecure.
