Canadian popsters Girl Pow-R aim to inspire once again with their latest release This Is Us.
Hot on the heels of this year’s Never Let Go, This Is Us comes in the midst of back-to-back Canadian and U.S. summer tour stops.
With lyrics like “passionate for some change,” “take our message, shout it out,” and “we won’t be pushed around, we are strong, we are proud,” the latest song from the all-girl supergroup continues to embody their core mission of banding together and uplifting their peers.
They’re also advocating for their personal list of social causes de coeur, which include working with charities on behalf of anti-war and stopping violence, SickKids, the Toronto Humane Society and SPCA, the Give and Restore Hope Children’s Charity, mental health awareness, WE Movement, Food4Kids, anti-bullying, and raising awareness for the occurrence of strokes in minors — a scenario that personally afflicted Girl Pow-R member Maya during a dance class in 2017.
The all-encompassing message of helping each other, and their communities-at-large, continue, to be dear to their hearts: Girl Pow-R have been seen around Canadian cities as of late inviting audience-members and passersby to write on their signature #GirlPowRment #Wall. “We started as a group by writing messages about friendship, acceptance and support that we find inspiring,” says the band. “We really enjoy seeing what other girls and women add as messages to other people all around the world!”
In continuing their inspirational mission of spreading confidence and kindness, Girl Pow-R hope their forthcoming debut album will encourage girls to stay confident in their individuality and avoid the pitfalls of peer pressure and online influence in today’s hyper-digital age.
With members ranging in age from 10 – 17, Girl Pow-R’s greatest strength lies in the diversity in their ages, backgrounds and life experiences. The universal things that join them together, however, are dynamic skill sets and a shared mission of empowerment among young women in the world today.
