Rachael Sage's New Single To Fundraise for Cancer Research


Rachael Sage has just released a new single – “Bravery’s On Fire” via MPress Records that is now available online.



Sage recently revealed that she was diagnosed with endometrial (uterine) cancer in 2018. She’s now in complete remission, and hopes to raise awareness of it. Endometrial (uterine) cancer is one of the most common type of women’s cancers in the U.S. with an estimation of 60,000 new cases to be diagnosed this year, and worldwide it is the 15th most common occurring cancer, overall, with 380,000 cases that was diagnosed in 2018.

Sage wrote “Bravery’s On Fire” whilst in the midst of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. The song, she noticed immediately connected with audiences, and so she was encouraged by the concept of courage that defines the song and to use it to raise awareness for endometrial (uterine) cancer. Sage says that “The song is about finding the courage to admit one’s own vulnerability and fragility – which can be very challenging for anyone, let alone a performer, to embrace”.

The song was co-produced with Grammy® winner Andy Zulla, and the track features longtime collaborators on cello Dave Eggar (Philip Phillips, Evanescence) and on drums Doug Yowell (Suzanne Vega), and with special guests on backing vocals Rebecca Loebe and Grace Pettis of Nobody’s Girl.

Sage has two upcoming shows with her longtime touring band, The Sequins, in October in New York City at two charity events benefiting cancer research:
