Martina’s current single, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It,” is an anthem for breast cancer patients, survivors and their supporters. The song tells the tale of a woman being diagnosed with the disease and her husband’s promise to love her through it. The song will be on Martina’s new album, Eleven, set for release on October 11.
