San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 17, 2009
In February, Pop singer, Miz Mandy announced the release of her sophomore album 'Today's the Day'. "Now that the album has been out there and people are familiar with the songs, we thought it was time to have the official release concert," Miz Mandy states. http://www.MizMandy.com
Miz Mandy co-wrote the majority of the tracks with Producer Patricio Pickslay. The album includes the recent Top 50 Billboard Dance charting track 'Sweet Fury of Love (Friscia & Lamboy Back 2 Soul Radio Mix)', the 'Best of' San Diego Magazine competition finalist 'Just Another Night', and features her new music video track 'Let Love Be Free'.
"The album release concert will have a seven piece band featuring special guest rapper Jayton Tha Mac and many dance companies including Positive Energy Dance, The Shimmy Sisters, and DarkIvey," Mandy stated. "We're all happy to be honoring those affected by breast cancer."
With about 1.3 million people diagnosed annually, breast cancer is a widespread and random disease, striking women and men of all ages and races. Miz Mandy "feels very close to the cause." Her grandmother Audrey was diagnosed with breast cancer and ultimately lost her battle to the disease at age 65. "Susan G. Komen San Diego is the perfect fit, and I'm very proud to be partnered with them."
With a network of 122 local affiliate offices, next to the U.S. Government; Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the largest funder of breast cancer research in the world, having invested more than $1 billion since its inception in 1982. Komen's promise is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
Since 1995, Komen for the Cure San Diego, through events and donations, has awarded grants totaling more than $8 million dollars to local San Diego organizations that have made valuable contributions to breast cancer diagnostics, treatment, education, screening and patient support; from outreach and mammograms, to surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation to material and financial support like meals, mortgage payments, support for children, prosthetics and wigs for the uninsured or underinsured and their families in San Diego County. http://www.komensandiego.org/
Miz Mandy has had an ongoing relationship with Komen for the Cure San Diego since October 2008, performing for both their grants reception and the Komen Breast Cancer 3- Day®.
"Miz Mandy has been a wonderful advocate for the local affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. We are honored that she is holding this concert as a benefit to raise funds for us." Breast cancer survivor and Director of Community Development and Outreach, Sandy Rabourne says, "Mandy has a heart of gold and that, along with her musical talent, are two of her greatest assets."
The concert will be held at Anthology Music and Supper Club on Thursday, August 6th. Guests will be greeted with a red-carpet entrance and a free Miz Mandy CD for every ticket purchased.

"I can't think of a better way to celebrate my album release than to serve the community by supporting programs for the early detection and prevention, treatment, and ultimately, a cure to this disease that affects us all," Mandy concludes.
