Michelle Obama Enlists Missy Elliott, Zendaya, Janelle Monáe, and More for "This Is For My Girls" Song

 Michelle Obama Enlists Missy Elliott, Zendaya, Janelle Monáe, and More for "This Is For My Girls" Song

First Lady Michelle Obama has enlisted a power squad for a new song, "This is For My Girls," inspired by the Let Girls Learn initiative and the 62 million girls around the world who do not have access to education.

Written by Oscar nominated Diane Warren, and executive produced by MAKERS, the song is an inspiring anthem for girls everywhere. It's more than a song, it's a call to action to join artists like Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliot, Janelle Monae, Kelly Rowland, and Zendaya who are using their voices to raise awareness and impact change.

ThisIsForMyGirls

Download the song now exclusively on iTunes where 100 percent of the proceeds will be in support of the Peace Corps Let Girls Learn Fund.

Stay tuned for more information at 62MillionGirls.com this week, and tune in here on Wednesday at 8:30am PST/10:30am CST/11:30am EST to watch First Lady Michelle Obama on a panel moderated by Queen Latifah with Missy Elliot, Sophia Bush, and Diane Warren.

This is for my girls
All around the world
This is for my girls

There's beauty in your soul
That's what makes you beautiful
Don't let nobody ever make you doubt it
Your heart is free and strong
That's what keeps you keepin' on
Can't keep you down,
There ain't no doubt about it
Don't forget it's all about respect
Nothing less will do
Remember it's your life, 
Live it any way you like
Cuz you know you got the right to

This is for my girls
All around the world
Stand up, hold your head up
Don't take no s**t 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

You're someone who can be
Soft as silk, but strong as steel
Don't shy away from showing what you're made of
This world is yours to take
You can bend, but you won't break
You got no fear, ain't nothin' you're afraid of
Don't forget it's all about respect
Nothing less will do
Push negativity aside
Let em see how bright you shine
Cuz you know that it's your time to

This is for my girls
All around the world
Stand up, hold your head up
Don't take no s**t 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
Let life in with open arms
Let love in with an open heart
We got to remember
We'll stand strong forever
If we stand together

This is for my girls
All around the world
Stand up, hold your head up
Don't take no s**t 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
