Martina McBride will perform the national anthem to kick off Sunday’s NFL showdown between the Baltimore Ravens and the New York Jets. The game is the first of many included in the NFL Breast Cancer Awareness campaign running through October, featuring pink coins used for the coin toss, pink goal post padding, pink equipment for the players and pink ribbon decals used for every down. The cause is near and dear to Martina’s heart and the sole message behind her latest single, “I’m Gonna Love You through It.”“Unfortunately, you know, I think everybody knows someone who’s been touched by cancer. I mean it could be any one of us at any time that gets that phone call. So, I think that it’s just—from the people that I’ve met, even since I’ve just released this song—they just tell touching stories about how this song really speaks to them.” Martina’s forthcoming album Eleven hits stores October 11th.
