Debbie Cochran Releases Powerful Project In Honor of Child Cancer Survivor
Classic country singer Debbie Cochran enlightens us with the remarkable story of a child cancer survivor in her new single Faith Can. The
title track to her upcoming project is set to release on all platforms
Friday, Sept. 2. Cochran is a real artist who isn't afraid to sing about
the harder obstacles of life. The rich and angelic tone of her voice
brings power that will make you feel the triumph behind this young
girl's tragedy. Debbie has partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® to donate 10 percent of all proceeds from the album to the hospital in Kate's name.
Foster, a competitive gymnast, was 12 years old when her mother told
her that she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. As a gymnast,
this tragedy not only took a toll on her health, but also her passion.
After battling cancer for many months, Foster lost her left leg due to
an infection in her knee joint. Foster was back to training and
performing with a prosthetic leg at age 14. "If you're willing to work
for what it takes, you can do anything," says Foster.
have passed St. Jude Children's Research Hospital many times heading
down "music highway" to the studio in Franklin, TN. I have noticed all
the parked vehicles on their campus and would say a silent prayer for
the children and their families passing by. As Kate's story came to
life, I began to learn the importance of St. Jude Children's Research
Hospital and the mission of finding cures and saving children. I
saw Kate in a St. Jude commercial one evening on TV, tugging at my
heart. These are real children, real mom's and dad's, real fears, real
tears, real battles," says Debbie.
"Not long ago, I discovered one Sunday morning Kate's grandparents sat behind me in church. It was at that moment the lyrics of Faith Can were written on my heart. When I think of Kate, I think of St. Jude. Together they moved a mountain."
is a tale that hits close to home for many families, and the power
behind the chorus is so inspiring that it is sure to touch all who hear
it. With honest lyrics and beautiful melodies, Faith Can has
the potential to become a country classic for the ages. This soulful
songstress knows that the pain of cancer is as real as the grace of God.
“How can you not be touched and want to help in some way, when you see
the children and parents’ emotions. It’s real,” says Cochran. Her moving
interpretation of Foster's story reminds us that Faith Can create
miracles when we have lost all hope. Faith Can make you strong enough to
move a mountain. "Faith can give you power to set your worries free,"
