Dolly Parton, Gloria Estefan, Cyndi Lauper & More Team Up For New Song To Be Featured In ’80 For Brady’ Film
musical icons Dolly Parton, Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan and Debbie Harry banded together and assembled an all-star line-up for their new single “Gonna Be You.” The forthcoming release will be featured on the Paramount Pictures film soundtrack 80 FOR BRADYwhich hits theaters on February 3rd.
Written by Oscar, Grammy and Emmy award-winning songwriter Diane Warren, the song is set to be released on January 20 via RAF/BMG. The plot of 80 FOR BRADY was triggered by the true story of four best friends who vow to live life to the fullest as they embark on an adventurous journey to Super Bowl LI 2017 in hopes of seeing their hero Tom Brady play.
The light-hearted film stars Oscar-nominated Lily Tomlin, Oscar-winning actress Jane Fonda, Oscar-winning actress Rita Moreno and Oscar-winning actress Sally Field. Seven-time Super Bowl champion and producer Tom Brady will also be there.
“When I wrote ‘Gonna Be You.’ 80 FOR BRADY, I wanted to write a song that celebrates the deep friendship these women have,” Warren shared. “Since 80 was in the title I had a crazy idea, why not get some of the most famous singers of the 80’s who are still amazing and always will be, to sing it all?!!!! Everyone I spoke to said yes and was just as excited as I was!! I’m honored to have Dolly Parton, Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan and Debbie Harry on this song!! ‘Gonna Be You’ is the song you’ll want to sing along to with all your good friends!!!”
Parton started the year strong when she helped millions ring in the new year with co-host Miley Cyrus for Miley’s New Year’s Eve bash on NBC. During the event, Parton took a break from her co-hosting duties to appear with Cyrus multiple times during the show. Together, the two superstars performed duets of Joan Jett And The Blackhearts’ “I Love Rock ‘n Roll,” Patsy Cline’s “Walkin’ After Midnight,” and Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” Parton’s “I Will Always Love You.” and “Jolene”.
Gonna Be You isn’t the only project the country legend is working on. Parton announced she’s working on a “very special” gospel duet with Dionne Warwick. Warwick, 82, shared the exciting news during a discussion with Tamron Hall on the Tamron Hall Show on Wednesday (January 4). Parton also released “Bets On Us,” a collaboration with Cheat Codes, on January 6th.
Parton recently released her greatest hits album, Diamonds & Rhinestones: The Greatest Hits Collection.
Diamonds & Rhinestones: The Greatest Hits Collection contains 23 of her most successful songs from 1971-2020, including the legendary tracks “9 to 5”, “Jolene” and “I Will Always Love You”. This is the first time Parton has combined original recordings released for the Greatest Hits project.
Inspired by her recent induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Parton is currently working on her first rock project.
