Five stars representing country, pop and R&B have come together to help fight breast cancer, as Dolly Parton, Monica, Jordin Sparks, Sara Evans and Rita Wilson team up for the new track, “Pink.”

A collaborative ballad with an inspiring tone, the track will benefit the Susan G. Komen foundation — the world’s leading breast cancer organization — and is available now.

Featuring stirring performances from each diva and an epic emotional theme, the supportive track is all about imagining a world where breast cancer has been defeated. In that brighter future no one has to lose loved ones and “pink is just another color,” not a ribbon that helps show how widespread the deadly disease really is, but right now that world is still a ways off.

According to the Komen foundation, breast cancer kills more than 42,000 women and men each year in the U.S. alone, and one in eight women will be diagnosed with it at some point in their lifetime. Wilson herself is a breast-cancer survivor, and Evans says she’s proud to do her part in helping others get through it.

“After performing at Opry Goes Pink last year, I’m thrilled to be supporting Susan G. Komen again this year in a very big way,” she shares. “There is something magical that happens when women band together to have a positive impact on the world for our sisters and our daughters.”

“We are extremely honored that Sara Evans has lent her immense talents to help us give a moment of hope and inspiration to everyone touched by breast cancer,” said Paula Schneider, CEO of Susan G. Komen. “As a breast cancer survivor who lost my mother to metastatic breast cancer, I know first-hand the toll this disease takes on entire families. There is life before breast cancer and life after. We all dream of a world when pink is just another color.” 

“Pink” was written by Erin Kinsey, Jodi Marr and Victoria Shaw, and the money it raises will be used to support a number of the organization’s initiatives — including their Breast Care Helpline and Treatment Assistance Program. Both of those programs and many more are in desperate need following disruptions in funding caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
