Empowerment Anthem “River Rock” Will Be Performed at Toast to Tenacity on August 26

Billboard Critic’s Choice Artist Meghan Cary and her initiative the “River Rock Project” is teaming up with Vision 2020 in honor of this year’s Centennial of women’s suffrage. The Project, a new Proud Partner of Women 100, aims to galvanize women to vote this election year with an amplified message of the imminent for women’s equality and justice for all.

Cary will perform her powerful anthem “River Rock” during Women 100’s highly anticipated Toast to Tenacity live-streaming celebration on August 26, Women’s Equality Day, at Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia – the kickoff to a year-long celebration of American women winning the right to vote and women’s achievement over the past century.

Cary will also debut an equally inspiring video, which will feature more than 100 women, and the men who stand with them, “lending their voices” and messages of hope for equality and justice for all as part of the virtual choir. To create the video, Cary and her team are inviting people from around the world to submit videos of themselves delivering a personal message and then singing along with the chorus of the song.

“The videos we’ve received so far have been incredible. People sharing their hopes for the future and inspiring others to get out and vote, to be heard. And then singing, or dancing, or…one person even ‘sang along’ in sign language…with the song. My dream of gathering 100 plus people in one place to make this video was crushed back in March,” said Cary. “But in the end, what was going to be 100 voices from mostly here in the Philly area has exploded into potentially thousands of voices from across the globe!”

The deadline for submitting videos is Wednesday, July 8th and information on how to be featured is located at: https://meghancary.com/casting-call
