Soul Surfer is the inspiring true story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton. Bethany lost her left arm in a shark attack and courageously overcame all odds to become a champion again, through her sheer determination and unwavering faith.

Bethany (AnnaSophia Robb) was born to surf. A natural talent who took to the waves at a young age, she was leading an idyllic life on Kauai, participating in national surf competitions with her best friend Alana (Lorraine Nicholson), when everything changed. On Halloween morning, a 14-foot tiger shark came out of nowhere and seemed to shatter all her dreams.

Soul Surfer reveals Bethany’s fight to recover from her ordeal and how she grappled with the question of her future. Strengthened by the love of her parents, Tom (Dennis Quaid) and Cheri (Helen Hunt), and supported by her youth group leader Sara (Carrie Underwood), Bethany refuses to give in or give up, and begins a bold return to the water.

Just two weeks away from the release of their highly-anticipated new album, Something Big (March 29, Columbia Records/MyBlock Records), chart-topping sister duo Mary Mary continues to make a major impact on television, at radio, and across the web, with no signs of slowing down.

Following two standing-room-only live showcases on each coast (in New York City and in Los Angeles), Mary Mary performed their newest radio hit, “Walking,” during the 42nd Annual NAACP Image Awards (FOX) at the beginning of March. This week, the award-winning duo wrapped a two-week national promo tour featuring several TV appearances, radio station visits, and meet & greet opportunities.

But if you think they might slow down a bit before their new album hits stores, think again.

Mary Mary has launched “Do Something Big,” and a once-in-a-lifetime contest for their fans– “Fly Away with Mary Mary.”

“Do Something Big” is Mary Mary’s ambitious, six-part altruistic initiative that acts as the heartbeat surrounding the release of their upcoming album, Something Big. Mary Mary will host “Do Something Big” on their Facebook Fan Page, engaging fans to participate in a new weekly activity for 6 weeks to “do something big” for others. Each week focuses on a different segment of those in need– the elderly, the homeless, local schools, local neighborhoods and world hunger.

Beyond joining Mary Mary in their mission to make a mark on the world, participants will be eligible for prizes and giveaways. To partner with Mary Mary in the “Do Something Big” campaign, visit beginning March 17, 2011.
