While the music world fussed over the rumor that Nicole Scherzinger could replace Fergie in the Black Eyed Peas, BEP bandmate Taboo had a message actually worth spreading: never give up.
The 41-year-old father of four only recently opened up about his secret battle with stage 2 testicular cancer in 2014, and he's using that painful experience to inspire others.
“‘The Fight’ was created during my darkest time in my personal fight against cancer,” Taboo tells People. “This video speaks to the isolation of that moment as well as the hope and promise of tomorrow that I found in my own young children. The talented kids featured in this video represent my continued commitment to movement, dance and a future without cancer.”
People reports the song was "released as part of his partnership with the American Cancer Society and his participation in their new campaign called The Fight, which was designed to inspire others battling cancer to maintain a positive outlook and all people to get tested if they see any warning signs."
Taboo continued, “There were times that I wanted to give up, but I became inspired by sports figures who have gone through similar battles. I began channeling my energy into the thing that keeps me alive and spirited: music. I wanted to share my story and inspire others like those who had inspired me.”
