Sideah Garrett released a new single for a good cause on Friday and Celeb Secrets has everything you need to know about the empowering track.
On Friday (April 28), the GRAMMY award-winning and two-time Oscar nominated singer/songwriter unveiled “Carry On,” which encourages people to “keep staying strong and carry on.”
â€œIâ€™ve always embraced the opportunity to use my God-given talent as a lyricist to support social causes and charities, and encourage others to do the same,â€ said Garrett. â€œWith MS, for me itâ€™s very personal, in that someone close to me is fighting the disease. If my songs in some small way can make a difference, then Iâ€™ll keep on writing.â€
Garrett was inspired to write the song after meeting Race to Erase MS founder Nancy Davis and learning about Davisâ€™ dedication to the fight against multiple sclerosis and seeing her passion for the cause. â€œCarry Onâ€ was written shortly after, in hopes of raising much needed funds and awareness in support of MS research. Available now for purchase, all proceeds from the single will go directly to the Race to Erase MS to support their mission of finding treatment options and, ultimately, a cure for multiple sclerosis.
Supporters ofÂ Race to Erase MSÂ will be able to hear Garrett perform “Carry On” for the first time ever at theÂ 24th Annual Race to Erase MS GalaÂ this Friday, May 5th. Held at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, the legendary, celebrity-filled gala has raised over $46 million to date for Race to Erase MS an its Center Without Walls program.Â Joining Garrett will be Race to Erase MSÂ founder and hostÂ Nancy Davis,Â 2017 Medal of Hope Award honoreeÂ Jamie-Lynn Sigler,Â and previously announced performer and renowned rock and roll band Chicago.
