Girl power! Michelle Obama is continuing her quest to empower women with the release of the new anthem, “This Is for My Girls.” Though the First Lady did not lend her vocals to the inspirational track, she did enlist the help of pop talents like Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, Zendaya, Janelle Monae, Lea Michele, Missy Elliot, Chloe and Halle, and Jadagrace. The song was written by Diane Warren.
The lyrics have a positive message, with the chorus reading: “This is for my girls, all around the world/ Stand up, put your head up, don’t take nothing from nobody/ This is for my girls, stand up and be heard/ This is for my ladies, my sisters all over, this is for my girls.”
The tune was released on Tuesday ahead of Obama’s appearance at SXSW Music Festival. In a panel moderated by Queen Latifah, Mobama will be joined on stage by Warren, actress Sophia Bush, and Missy Elliott.
Clarkson tweeted about the new song, writing, “#This IsForMyGirls Education is key to opening minds and doors to opportunities that are absolutely possible!”
Destiny’s Child alum Rowland also tweeted, “So honored to be a part of this movement w/ other amazing women for @FLOTUS #62MillionGirls! #LetGirlsLearn.”
The song is serving as an anthem for the Let Girls Learn initiative to help the 62 million girls around the world who are not in school get an education. All U.S. proceeds of the song will go to this program.
This isn’t the first time FLOTUS has used her A-list pals to promote a positive message. In 2011, she got Beyonce to record a remix of her song “Get Me Bodied” called “Move Your Body” to promote kids getting active.
