Craig Campbell Takes a Stand Against Cancer with Emotional Performance of “Stronger Than That”

The country star played to a sold-out stadium crowd of 66,000.

Craig Campbell will never stop fighting for a cure for cancer.

The country singer played to a sold-out stadium crowd of 66,000 in Minneapolis on Sunday (October 14th), taking a stand against cancer with the uplifting anthem “Stronger Than That” as the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings took on the Arizona Cardinals.

With fans in the stands holding signs that read “Stronger Than Cancer,” Campbell’s heartfelt, unifying performance was part of the NFL’s ongoing Crucial Catch platform, which raises awareness, support and money for families battling a cancer diagnosis.

Meant as a rally cry of support for the millions of Americans standing tough against cancer, “Stronger Than That” was written for Fight CRC (Fight Colorectal Cancer), a charity which seeks to raise awareness about the disease and funding for a cure. Campbell is one of the organization’s national spokespersons and brings a deeply personal connection to the cause, as colorectal cancer claimed his father’s life at the age of 36 – Campbell was just 11 years old at the time. A portion of the proceeds from “Stronger Than That” will be donated to Fight CRC, and Campbell has previously raised more than $300,000 for the cause.
