Michelle Obama Unveils Star-Studded Charity Single, ‘This Is for My Girls’, mixed by Eric Racy
“This Is for My Girls,” is a star-studded song Michelle Obama commissioned for charity, hit radio stations and online marketplaces Tuesday. Diane Warren wrote the jam, which features Kelly Clarkson, Chloe x Halle, Missy Elliott, Jadagrace, Lea Michele, Janelle Monáe, Kelly Rowland, and Zendaya. “It’s kind of like ‘We Are the World’ meets ‘Lady Marmalade’ with these strong voices and strong women,” Warren told Billboard after it debuted. “I think it can be a huge worldwide anthem. I hope it becomes that.”
“Girls” plays as an empowering call to action, one ultimately aimed at raising education-inequality awareness and all proceeds benefit ‘Let Girls Learn’, an initiative that helps girls around the world receive a full education.
