NEW YORK (AP) - Martina McBride’s new single, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It,” is an inspirational song about going through cancer, and for the video, she enlisted the help of a few famous faces to convey the message.

“Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts, singer Sheryl Crow, ABC’s Katie Couric and “Today” anchor Hoda Kotb ( HO’-duh KAHT’-bee) all appear in the clip, which debuts Wednesday on CMT.com.

Roberts, Crow and Kotb are all survivors of breast cancer; Couric’s husband died of colon cancer.

McBride, who has never had cancer, says she wanted to sing the song to give hope and positive messages to those going through the struggle. She says it “takes a lot of strength and a lot of love to get through something like that.”

The song is from her new album, “Eleven,” due out Oct. 11.
