Warner/Chappell, Liz Rose Music and Breakthrough Music Collaborate with Girl Scouts of the USA to Help Girls “Shine” Through Music

Warner/Chappell Songwriters Liz Rose and Emily Shackelton Pen Girl
Scout Anthem Celebrating Girl Empowerment

NEW YORK & NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#GirlScouts–Warner/Chappell (WCM), the global music publishing arm of Warner Music
Group, together with Girl Scouts of the USA, announced today the launch
of the organization’s first ever original song thanks to the help from
two WCM/Liz Rose Music songwriters – the Grammy Award-winning Liz Rose
(Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Little Big Town) and Emily Shackelton (Reba
McEntire, David Cook, Cassadee Pope) – along with Girl Scouts singing
backup vocals. The new song, “Watch Me Shine,” will be spotlighted in
Girl Scouts new PSA
“I’m Prepared,” which debuted on November 29 and celebrates every girl’s
inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™. Applauding
girls who never give up, who try new things, and who make their ideas a
reality, the PSA and anthem represent how Girl Scouts prepares every
G.I.R.L. to practice leadership like a Girl Scout––uniquely encouraging
girls to cultivate grit, problem-solving, risk-taking, and leading with
empathy.

“We are so pleased to collaborate with Girl Scouts of the USA on a
message of empowerment for young women,” said Ben Vaughn, Executive Vice
President of Warner/Chappell Nashville. “Liz and Emily have truly
created a song for G.I.R.L.s everywhere with ‘Watch Me Shine’.”

“Music has always been an integral part of Girl Scout tradition and an
important tool for bringing people together,” said Lynn Godfrey, chief
marketing and communications officer, Girl Scouts of the USA. “‘Watch Me
Shine’ is a rallying cry for G.I.R.L.s to lead in their everyday lives.
We anticipate this song will inspire girls to empower themselves, go
outside of their comfort zones, and conquer any obstacle they face, the
Girl Scout way.”

Songwriters Liz Rose and Emily Shackelton are both signed to Liz Rose
Music, a joint publishing venture with Warner/Chappell. The female-owned
company, Breakthrough
Music
, was instrumental in the production of the song and working
with the Girl Scouts on a new music distribution model.

“We commend Girl Scouts of the USA for leveraging music as a strategic
tool to encourage engagement,” added Juliet Shavit, Co-founder of
Breakthrough Music.

About Girl Scouts of the USA

We’re 2.7 million strong—1.9 million girls and 800,000 adults who
believe girls can change the world. It began over 100 years ago with one
woman, Girl Scouts’ founder Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, who believed in
the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on
March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we’ve made
her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions,
and talents. Today we continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls
of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better
place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for
girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the
globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.
