Michelle Obama Commissions Missy Elliot’s “This is For My Girls” for Charity

Michelle Obama

There’s no question that Michelle Obama is a first lady that completely understands the world and time we are living in.   And part of her initiative as a first lady has been the empowerment of women.  In order to get her message across, Obama has commission a hit rap song as her “anthem” of sorts. As part of #62MillionGirls, a global campaign run by the First Lady’s Let Girls Learn initiative and Girl Rising in support of girls’ education, the new anthem will be Missy Elliot’s “This is for my girls.”

Oscar winning songwriter Diana Warren had this to say about it: “We haven’t had an anthem like this in awhile,” Warren noted in an interview with Billboard. “I envisioned the record being with all these different women, never just one girl singing on it. With Kelly Rowland on it, it’s almost like an updated Destiny’s Child record. I think it can be a huge worldwide anthem.”

Not only will the song be a global anthem but the hope is that it’s also a call to action. In an article by USA Today it’s been said that the song is:

Executive-produced by AOL’s inspirational women’s website MAKERS.com, This Is For My Girls presents itself as such, aiming to raise awareness about education inequality through its powerhouse vocalists: Glee’s Lea Michele, Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliott, Zendaya, Janelle Monae, Kelly Rowland, Jadagrace and Beyonce protégées Chloe & Halle.

The single is going to be available on iTunes in anticipation of President Obama’s keynote address. Proceeds from the sales will go to The Peace Corps Let Girls Learn Fund.  “which helps break down barriers and stigma that prevent girls from getting the education they rightfully deserve.”  Now this is how politics is done right.  I couldn’t applaud Michelle Obama any more if I tried.  Nicely done and there better not be any annoying backlash about this.  This is nothing but 100% positive.
