There “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” for the 2015 TCU Frogs for the Cure artist, local singer and Season 7 “The Voice” veteran Luke Wade.

On Sept. 1, Frogs for the Cure released the song, which raises funds for the Susan G. Komen organization. A few days earlier, on Aug. 30, final filming for the video was completed. The video will debut at the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs’ game with West Virginia University on Thursday, October 29.

Wade, along with Season 8 “Voice” contestant Mia Z recorded the iconic 1960’s song “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Ashford & Simpson. The single releases September 1 on ITunes and the music video will debut in October 2015 to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All ITunes proceeds of the sale of each single (.81 cents) will benefit Susan G. Komen.

Every fall, Frogs for the Cure produces a music video with a song recognized as an anthem of courage for anyone who has been touched by breast cancer. This annual program at TCU is now in its 11th year to enhance awareness of breast cancer, support survivors and their families, and raise funds for Susan G. Komen.

Frogs for the Cure is led by Ann Louden, who serves on the TCU Chancellor’s executive team and is a breast cancer survivor.

“We are very excited to kick off the second decade of Frogs for the Cure. With the talents of Luke Wade and Mia Z, we continue spreading the word nationally that together we can all make a difference” said Louden.

For Wade, the Frogs for the Cure work has special meaning. “Susan G. Komen and Frogs for the Cure are doing a great thing. It is such an honor and a privilege to get to lend my voice to the people fighting the disease that I watched both of my grandmothers struggle with growing up,” said Wade in a news release.

Both Wade and Louden received the 2015 Healthcare Heroes award from Fort Worth Business for their work on various health care issues.
