REVIEW: THE FIGHT by Taboo reminds us to stay strong in the game of life
There are so many things going on in the world that it is easy to feel as though there is no way we can win against the challenges we face. Thankfully there are examples all around us to remind us that giving up is not an option. If we want to enjoy better days and see things turn around we have to fight. That is just one of the messages that Grammy Award-winning artist Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas shares in his new single THE FIGHT.
We know Taboo for the music, but this year he let the world into his very personal fight with cancer and his partnership with the American Cancer Society. A true survivor, the single THE FIGHT is all about moving forward and being a fighter, no matter what we face.
"I'm a warrior. I'm a champion. I'm a fighter," the song proclaims. "I'm not giving in, so bring it on I'm ready for the fight." The single reminds us that we are all in this thing called life together and if we don't give up and keep the faith---and don't forget to love one another--- "Everything's gonna be alright."
Taboo's passion for making a difference goes way beyond just music. By teaming up with the American Cancer Society he is also promoting healthy living and raising funds for their work. In fact for every download of the song THE FIGHT through Amazon.com and other online retailers through December 2017, the American Cancer Society will receive approximately 70% of the purchase price.
By sharing of his time and resources Taboo is doing his part to make a difference, so the questions are then put to us in THE FIGHT: "What if you were told that today was the last day of your life? Did you live it right?" We are then given this reminder that should serve us well: "Love is a gift you give away, and it re-ignites. Don't wait," the song urges. "Don't let it pass you by."
May we all be inspired to do our part to make a difference, and it all begins today.
