Singer/pianist Andrew McMahon (the Something Corporate and Jackâ€™s Mannequin artist) has been touring and releasing lots of new material recently and has just announced a partnership with Stand Up To Cancer by participating in its programming beginning in December 2009.
The Stand Up To Cancer initiative aims to raise awareness and bring about an understanding that everyone is connected by cancer. The group has raised more than $100 million for cancer research through television events, private and corporate donors, Major League Baseball stadiums, and public donations.
McMahon is set to release his Dear Jack DVD documentary on Nov. 3, chronicling his personal fight against leukemia. He is also releasing an EP titled “The Dear Jack EP”. It will be available on iTunes and features: â€œDear Jack,â€ â€œDiane, the Skyscraper,â€ â€œThere, There Katie,â€ and â€œSwim (Music Box).â€
A portion of the proceeds from these products will go to The Dear Jack Foundation â€” the non-profit charitable organization dedicated to funding cancer research that McMahon founded in 2006.
Please support him on iTunes!
