Just Stand Up!
Artists Stand Up to Cancer
Listen, why are you all so focused on the artists in the song? It isn't about them. It is about the lyrics and the message behind them. As a survivor myself, I am truly horrified that you would rather complain about how much each woman got to sing, rather than sit and listen to what they are saying. Cancer is a disease that we can stop, and songs like this that bring awareness are a true blessing, and I thank each artist that participated, no matter how small the part, in an effort to show their support.
It's good, but a few complaints...
First, it seems as if voices like Beyonce dominated the song, but I thought this was an ensemble? Many artists rarely got a chance to sing! Secondly, many will be fooled by artist talents like Natasha Bedingfield, Carrie Underwood, and Ciara, this is NOT a pop song, it is nearing gospel, not that there is anything wrong with that, but some will be misled. My third and largest complaint is... what did they do to Miley Cyrus? The girl's voice is so powerful and raw, but they make her sound like a little school girl in this song? I am sorry, but that is really unfair for fans who hoped to hear her, but instead, heard what the producers thought would sell. Overall, a good, solid track, worth it because it is charity, but it won't be a hit. And next time, make everyone have an equal part, rather than Fergie, Beyonce, Rihanna, and Mary J Blige taking most vocals!
