(CNN)Michelle Obama's Let Girls Learn initiative now has its own song, a creation featuring vocal performances from a powerhouse group of celebrity women, including Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliott, Zendaya, Lea Michele, Chloe x Halle, Jadagrace, Janelle Monáe and Kelly Rowland.

The song, called "This is For My Girls" and written by Academy Award-nominated and Grammy Award-winning songwriter Diane Warren, will serve as an anthem for the U.S. government-wide initiative launched by the President and the first lady one year ago to help the more than 62 million girls who are not in school get access to education.
"This is for my girls. All around the world. Stand up. Hold your head up. Don't take no s**t from nobody," the performers sing during part of the song. "This is for my girls. Stand up and be heard."
