    The song is just amazing. Makes me teary whenever I hear it, even more now because I have yet another friend who was just diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I’ve been a loud+proud Street Teamer for these fabulous boys since day one and all the work they’ve done to shed light on this issue.

    Or go to ITunes and Download the song. Do it for yourself or gift it in honor/memory of someone you love who’s been touched by this. Show them they’re the “Brightest Star” in your life.

    Music is one of those universal things that move people, bring people together. Throughout history there has always been music. Juke Kartel has dedicate their art and passion to the cause of finding a cure for breast cancer and this reflects the bands passionate souls. They are giving to Susan G Komen not just in the dollars raised by a beautiful song-but hope and inspiration to all of us who live day to day in world where this devastating disease exists.
    There is grace in the words of this song and beauty in each of the five of you.

    Now let’s return the gift! Sign up for the race-donate 5, 10, 500 dollars-to Susan G. Komen LA
    Listen to the song and then I dare you to say no……..

      A great way to support this cause is to dedicate your birthday to the Susan G. Komen foundation and request charitable donations instead of gifts. It’s easy to do at the new website: http://www.InviteCharity.com. Help spread the word!

    A beautiful story. I just love this song. One of my close friends was diagnosed with breast cancer late last year. I sent her the song. She loved it and said she would listen to it when she felt sad or unsure or just having a bad day. Thank you Juke Kartel. You ARE making a difference to many people, so THANKYOU. Love to you all xx
