The Paramount Pictures film ’80 For Brady’ is based on a true story, and since its first promotional trailer was released a couple of months ago, fans have been waiting for it. Starring Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Sally Field and Rita Moreno, the Kyle Marvin-directed film will be released on February 3.
In addition to the recently released featurette, it was announced that its soundtrack will include a song that will be performed by several of the most iconic singers of the 80’s, entitled ‘Gonna Be You’.
A star-studded theme song by all accounts
It was announced that the interpreters of the song will be the iconic Dolly Parton, Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan and Debbie Harry, who will give life to the song that was composed by multi-award winning songwriter Diane Warren.
The song can now be pre-saved on various music platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer, and will be released on January 20.
“When I wrote ‘Gonna Be You’ for 80 For Brady, I wanted to write a song that celebrated the deep friendship of these women,” Warren said in a press release
“Since ’80’ was in the title, I came up with a crazy idea: why not ask some of the most iconic female singers of the ’80s, who are still amazing and always will be, to sing it? Everyone I approached said yes and were just as excited as I was,” she added.
80’s girl power in full force
“It’s an honor to have Dolly Parton, Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan and Debbie Harry on this song. ‘Gonna Be You’ is that song you want to sing with all your good friends,” added the also legendary songwriter.
’80 for Brady’ is inspired by the true story of four best friends who live life to the fullest when they make a whirlwind trip to the 2017 Super Bowl LI to see their hero Tom Brady play.
Diane Warren has a long and successful career that has made her a legend, authoring such classic songs as “Because You Loved Me” (Celine Dion), “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength” (Whitney Houston), “Look Away” (Chicago), “Have You Ever” (Brandy) and “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” (Aerosmith), among hundreds of others.
