Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliott Collaborate for Michelle Obama's New Song

Girl power! Michelle Obama is continuing her quest to empower women with the release of the new anthem, "This Is for My Girls." Though the First Lady did not lend her vocals to the inspirational track, she did enlist the help of pop talents like Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, Zendaya, Janelle Monae, Lea Michele, Missy Elliot, Chloe and Halle, and Jadagrace. The song was written by Diane Warren.

The lyrics have a positive message, with the chorus reading: "This is for my girls, all around the world/ Stand up, put your head up, don't take nothing 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."
