'Girl, the album' Kickstarter

What better purpose to get behind, than one which aims to inspire women? WiMN and She Rocks Awards founder Laura B. Whitmore, along with singer/songwriter Jenna Paone, have recently teamed up for Girl, the album. The inspirational project unites artists in the shared goal of female empowerment. Bass legend Divinity Roxx and the GRAMMY Award-winning Rob Christie have signed on to produce this collection of original pop songs that were written to encourage girls of all ages to embrace exactly who they are.

“It’s important to give girls a voice and for all of us to cheer them on as they take on their passions and goals,” Whitmore says in the video for the Kickstarter campaign. With just over a week to go, the group is looking to collect the funds needed to record, release, and promote the new project. Some incredible talents have joined forces in the studio in order to bring Girl, the album to life. Artists include career musicians such as Nita Strauss, Mindi Abair, Kat Dyson, Command Sisters, and Sabrina Lentini, among others. 

Backers not only help to embolden girls everywhere, but they’ll also receive some cool Kickstarter rewards for their contributions. Gifts range from a custom coloring songbook and a “PRETTY” t-shirt to products from MAC Cosmetics, Paul Mitchell, Martin Guitars, and Sennheiser; some packages even offer tickets to events such as the 2019 She Rocks Awards.

Every song on Girl, the album focuses on things like "self-love, finding your own voice, strength, sisterhood, intelligence and so much more," as stated about the album's description. Each lyric and note is intended to motivate girls all over the world to dream big, love hard, and to remind them that they have each other’s support.
