ROZES Premieres New Version for “Halfway There” featuring Mandy of MisterWives, Samantha of Marian Hill & Chelsea of SHAED
- Chelsea Lee of SHAED, Mandy Lee of MisterWives and Samantha Gongol of Marian Hill have united with American singer-songwriter ROZES.
They released a new version of “Halfway There” as “Halfway There (GRL PWR)” on International Women’s Day (March 8).
The original version of the song was released back in January and became the official anthem to the 2019 Women's March on NYC via The Women's March Alliance.
“We as women face many obstacles in the workforce. It is so amazing being able to team up with my Photo Finish sisters for this alternate version of ‘Halfway There,’” ROZES told Billboard. “For them to offer their amazing talents and stand with me in this fight feels like the support all of us women need. As the saying goes, ‘Empowered Women Empower Women.’ We must continue to support and build each other up. There is room here for all of us.”
- Chelsea Lee said, “Although women should be appreciated and respected each and every day, International Women’s Day encourages us all to come together and celebrate each other; a day where women are recognized for their strength, beauty, and accomplishments.”
Samantha Gongol said, “International Women’s Day is a call to action, a celebration of accomplishment, and an acknowledgment of the challenges that women around the world still face. I don’t often get to sing with three insanely talented women, but joining Mandy and Chelsea on Liz’s song felt like our own tribute. I’m honored to be one small voice amongst a rapidly growing choir. And we had so much fun singing it.”
Mandy Lee said, “Women’s day (isn’t that everyday?) is a time to honor and celebrate all the brave trailblazing women before us, after us and those all around us who have paved the way for girls and women to be heard, to be seen, to be bold, to be proud and to be all things they believe they can be without someone saying they cannot. It’s not just a day, it is a momentous movement that reminds us how far we have come and how much further we will go.”
ROZES has partnered with the UN Foundation’s Girl Up program for the release of “Halfway There (GRL PWR).” 20% of the profits from the song’s streams will go to Girl Up, as well as 100% of the profits from special rose pins, which are available for purchase for $5 (or you can donate what you wish).
