As NBC's "The Voice" continues with this season's battle rounds, Rockwall's contender for last season's title is raising money for breast cancer research.

Amber Carrington, whose mother died of breast cancer two years ago, is working with Pinktoberfest.

"We're having a traveling mammogram truck come out and give mammograms to the women of the community," she said. "We're also raffling off an iPad, a 50-inch TV. We have tons of people joining in with us as sponsors so we can give away and raise money."

The Thursday event will be held at LaRue Chic Boutique, the Royse City shop where the singer used to work.

"It's all about the woman," Carrington said. "They lose their hair, they lost their breast, and all of the things society says make a woman a woman. It's very close to my heart."

Pinktoberfest benefits the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Carrington is also moving forward with the whirlwind that is now her life.

"It's been crazy busy," she said. "I moved to Nashville three months ago. I've been writing a lot. I got to sing at the Grand Ole Opry last Friday, so it's been moving really quick."

When asked if life after "The Voice" is everything she thought it would be, she replied, "Yes -- everything and more. I'm still doing what I love to do, and that's all I can ask for, really."
