REPUBLIC NASHVILLE artist MARTINA McBRIDE’s fans have been active supporters of raising money in her name, for the T.J. MARTELL CANCER RESEARCH FUND. As ALL ACCESS previously reported (NET NEWS 11/2), they most recently raised $25,000 for a grant in the singer’s name.
As a “Thank You” to those fans, known as “TEAM MARTINA,” McBRIDE will them to a special “SOUNDCHECK FOR A CURE” at her sold-out concert in WEST VIRGINIA on SATURDAY (1/12). The team will be personally thanked by MARTINA, get an insider’s peek at her preparations for the evening concert, be treated to dinner, and have their photo taken with McBRIDE.
“TEAM MARTINA” is a nationwide, all-volunteer group of fans that were inspired by MARTINA’s 2011 song, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It.” Since 2011, the group has raised over $85,000 for various cancer causes, with nearly $40,000 going to the T.J. MARTELL FOUNDATION.
