From rallying the millennial generation’s votes to hanging out with Jay, Bey, and Kendrick Lamar, Barrack and Michelle have been the real MVP’s. For little brown boys and girls across America, the Obama family has proven that hard work and dedication can take you anywhere you want to go—and Michelle’s new single proves it.
While FLOTUS doesn’t spit any bars, she and songwriter Diane Warren do bring together a powerful group of women on “This Is for My Girls,” an inspirational anthem for the Let Girls Learn initiative. Featuring Electric Lady Janelle Monae; Destiny’s Child alum Kelly Rowland; hip hop superstar Missy Elliot; "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson; "Glee" star Lea Michelle; teen sensation Zendaya; YouTube songstresses Chloe and Halle Bailey; and actress, singer, and dancer Jadagrace, the song spreads melodious encouragement for the almost 62 million girls globally without access to education. To show their commitment to girls’ education, the artists have waved their royalties and fees so that all proceeds from the sale of the single go to the Peace Corps Let Girls Learn Fund.
"It's kind of like 'We Are the World' meets 'Lady Marmalade' with these strong voices and strong women," Warren told Billboard Magazine in a recent interview.
