PopWreckoning favorite Ingrid Michaelson today debuted her music video for “Be OK” on www.standup2cancer.org. Be OK, which drops October 14th on her own Cabin 24 Records, is an album of unreleased songs, covers, and live recordings that have become fan favorites from her shows over the past year. In concurrence with the new album, Michaelson will launch the “Be OK” tour in her hometown Staten Island at the end of October (dates below).

Michaelson will also headline nine dates on the all-female Hotel Café Tour this fall (October 16 – 27). The tour will feature some of the best female songwriters performing today, including Rachael Yamagata, Priscilla Ahn, Meiko, Brooke Fraser, Kate Havenik, and Thao Nguyen, among many others.

A portion of the proceeds from sales of Be OK will go to Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), a groundbreaking initiative aimed at raising funds to accelerate cancer research and end cancer’s reign as a leading cause of death.

Michaelson has also designed a “Be OK” necklace for sale at each tour stop and online, with all proceeds going to SU2C. The “Be OK” single will be available on iTunes beginning September 2, the same date Michaelson is set to perform the song on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
