Just Stand Up

I want to share this video of Beyonce, Carrie Underwood, Mariah Carey, Natasha Bedingfield, Keyshia Cole, Miley Cyrus, Nicole Scherzinger, Fergie, Mary J. Blige, Leona Lewis, Ashanti, Rihanna, and Ciara performing "Just Stand Up." This song produced by L.A. Reid and Babyface Edmonds has a great beat and lyrics I find so inspiring that they bring tears to my eyes. Lately I have been listening to "Just Stand Up" almost nonstop!

"Just Stand Up" is a cancer benefit single. This cause is very personal to me. Last year, I lost two beautiful and kind aunts to cancer. My Tita Baby died on Sept. 5 and my Tita Beth died on Dec. 27. Stand up to cancer! My aunts and I had some similar tastes. I think they would have enjoyed this song. :o) And I know they would want us all to help spread the word about the Stand Up to Cancer movement.

I watched the cancer telethon on TV. This was a great song, but did you see the monologues by Jennifer Gardner and Halle Berry? They were so full of meaning and so real...
