Brittany Hicks and Chris Carmody’s original song “Diamonds in the Air,” which they debuted at the Mr. and Mrs. THON Pageant last month, was released on iTunes last week.

Hicks and Carmody came up with the idea of writing an original song about THON when the two were selected as Mr. and Mrs. PR for the Mr. and Mrs. THON Pageant. “Diamonds In The Air,” which features Carmody playing the guitar and rapping and Hicks singing, was a combined effort between the two earlier in the semester.

The song is available on iTunes for $0.99, and all proceeds benefit THON. Hicks and Carmody decided to release it on iTunes after the song’s widespread popularity following its debut at the Mr. and Mrs. THON Pageant.

Additionally, a spectacular music video for the song was released today on Youtube. Produced by Kendra Pyne, the video features behind the scenes footage of Hicks and Carmody performing along with interviews and content from the THON archive.

Hicks and Carmody have been blown away by the song’s success since the release of Onward State’s video of its radio debut on B94.5 last month.

“Diamonds in the Air means so much to me because one of my favorite things to see at any THON event is when everyone puts their diamonds up,” Hicks said. “It’s such a simple symbol, but it has so much powerful meaning behind it. It shows that we stand by all our THON families no matter what happens and that they always have our support.”
