Ann Louden, the chair for Frogs for the Cure and a nine-year cancer survivor, has been planning this year’s music video since last November. She said she is excited to film the last portion of the video with the TCU community.
This year’s music video will feature the song, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” performed by Luke Wade and Mia Z from NBC’s the Voice.
Louden said that when choosing the song, she wanted something that was going to have a good message as well as a good melody.
“I dream up what is it that I think could work and what song might fit that,” Said Louden. “I then have to figure out how I get that song and create a story board for that song. “
Wade said that he thinks the song has a good message and speaks volumes to the people fighting breast cancer.
“If there’s something that you want, something that you need and if you have passion for something, there’s no obstacle great enough to keep you from it,” said Wade.
Wade said he was happy to perform for this year’s music video, not only because both of his grandmothers suffered from breast cancer, but also because he likes working for a good cause.
“For me, it’s something that I’m going to do and for other people who want to join me, who can help me make my voice louder, and make my affect on the world greater, I’m happy to be a part of that bigger, greater cause,” said Wade.
Louden said that she hopes to get 2,000 participants to help make this music video possible.
“It’s all about making sure we have a finished product that is fabulous, that all the details get met and that people have a great time,” said Louden. “But most importantly is that the survivors feel empowered and that we bring them a sense of community and thank them for being courageous and brave.”
People participating in the music video are being asked to wear the 2015 Frogs for the Cure T-shirt, which can be purchased at the TCU Barnes and Noble Bookstore for $15.
The event will begin in the campus recreation center at 1:30 p.m. and end in the campus commons at 4:30 p.m.
