What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

When Pink is Just Another Color


Susan G. Komen, the well-known breast cancer organization, recorded a beautiful song called Pink as an anthem for the breast cancer community. Featuring artists Dolly Parton, Rita Wilson, Jordin Sparks, Monica, and Sara Evans, the song is looking toward a day when there’s a cure and “pink is just another color.” The song was written by three good friends, including Victoria Shaw who has written for many popular country artists. Here’s the story:

“After seeing a public service announcement for Susan G. Komen®, she thought to herself: “someday pink will just be another color and we won’t have to do this anymore.”  

“She was moved to bring this idea to life several months later, when during a co-writing session with her friends Jodi Marr and emerging artist, Erin Kinsey, Erin’s manager, Amy Fish, revealed she was a breast cancer survivor. “I was actually in shock,” shared Victoria, “none of us knew that just a year prior Amy had privately gone through breast cancer treatment.”  

“It was in that moment that the three of us knew we had to write a song together about a day when breast cancer no longer exists. I don’t know anybody that hasn’t been touched by breast cancer whether personally or just knowing somebody who has or has it,” shared Victoria, “and that was truly the catalyst for this song.”

The women made a gift of the song to the Susan G. Komen organization, and it’s helped to raise both awareness and much-needed funds to combat the disease.

  1. If caught early enough breast cancer can be treatable. Now with Multiple Sclesosis. MS after millions and millions spent on reasearch there is no cure. It is a death sentence. Jan lived a couple of years over the average but it took her. Let me make this clear I fully support the Pink campaign but there are things that still don’t have a cure. Hal

  2. Of course the musicians are excellent and the video is quite touching, especially the people holding the pictures. And now I have my ugly cry of the week done.
