Musiq Soulchild Tackles Breast Cancer Awareness in New Video For “Yes”

September 21, 2011  |  

The Philadelphia-born and bred singer’s newest video “Yes” helps raise awareness about breast cancer, but is also a touching love story. Musiq stands by a girlfriend during the roughest parts of her breast cancer treatment, from the actual surgery to the hair cutting and recovery process. In Musiq-like fashion, he makes it clear that as their relationship goes on, he won’t leave her side or love her less. AWWWWWW! At the end of the video, he finally marries the young woman, and does so in front of a room of actual breast-cancer survivors. Deep, right? Musiq, who is a new ambassador the for Susan G. Komen for the Cure Circle of Promise had this to say about the video’s message:

“Early detection is the key to winning the fight against breast cancer,” said Musiq. “Too often, black women are diagnosed in stage three and four when breast cancer is most difficult to treat. Some women are afraid to seek treatment for fear of losing their breasts or their hair. One’s physical appearance is much less important than the will to live. It’s time to remove the stigmas that are attached to this disease.”

    Great video. But he failed to realized the women in the video is in her 20's. Women at that age getting breast cancer is slim to none. It doesn't make since. He should of choice someone to play his mother or grandmother to play the breast cancer patient. None someone in their 20's or 30's.

    • "When did cancer start having an age"? "Have you ever heard about St Jude hospital with children who have cancer can strike at any age whether it breast or anyother kind of cancer".

      That is not true at all!!!!!! I had a breast cancer scare at 24 years old. I also know another young lady who found out that she had breast cancer at the age of 26. Breast Cancer does not care about how old you are.
