Martina McBride traveled to New York City today, August 30, to visit her friend and host of ABC’s Good Morning America, Robin Roberts. Martina performed her GRAMMY-nominated song “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” for Robin, who announced earlier this week that she will be taking a medical leave to undergo a bone marrow transplant and treatment for MDS.
During her visit, Martina also revealed a new partnership she will take part in this September and October to further raise awareness about breast cancer. Her visit to GMA comes a year after Robin joined her in Nashville to film the video for “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” which features cancer survivors and supports and includes appearances by Robin, Hoda Kotb, Katie Couric and Sheryl Crow.
“It meant the world to me when Robin joined me in Nashville for the music video,” Martina said before performing this morning. “She is an inspiration to me, my family and my fans. I can’t wait to see her to give her a big hug and perform for her. It’s an honor.”
Martina is touring the country through the remainder of year. Tour dates and more information can be found at www.MartinaMcBride.com.
