Kelly Clarkson, Janelle Monae and Others Release Song in Support of Michelle Obama’s Education Initiative

Michelle Obama has received some major celebrity support for her education initiative dedicated to supporting the education of girls worldwide.

"Called This Is For My Girls, the song will be performed live at the South by Southwest (SXSW) music, film and tech festival in Texas on Wednesday as Obama pushes her Let Girls Learn campaign,” said The Straits Times. 

Obama announced her Let Girls Learn initiative in March 2015 and proceeds from the new single will go to the campaign, which Obama said is in the “action” phase.

Written by Oscar-nominated songwriter Diane Warren, the single is intended to be an anthem fro the 62 million girls in need of education worldwide.

Clarkson and Monae aren’t the only powerful female singers to lend their vocals to the song.

"Along with Rowland, Missy Elliott, Zendaya, Janelle Monae, Lea Michele, Kelly Clarkson, Jadagrace, and Beyoncé protégées Chloe & Halle lend vocals to “This Is for My Girls,” which was released on iTunes today,” said UpTownMagazine.com.
