Cyndi Lauper and Sara Bareilles are teaming up with Hoda Kotb and the “Today” show to remix and mash up two of their hit songs.
“Truly Brave,” which combines Lauper’s 1986 single “True Colors” and Bareilles’ song “Brave,” will raise money for the fight against pediatric cancer.
The song’s music video features young patients from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia sneaking out of their hospital rooms and joining together to have fun while painting a giant sign that says, “Truly Brave.”
Both the song and the video are part of Today’s” “Shine a Light” outreach campaign that benefits the American Cancer Society. Kotb, who is a breast cancer survivor, set up her own Crowdrise campaign to take donations. The charity has raised more than $135,000 as of Thursday afternoon.
