Dolly Parton, Belinda Carlile, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan, Debbie Harry release ‘Gonna Be You’

Song is featured in the Paramount film 80 for Brady

An all-star cast of iconic singers including Dolly Parton, Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan and Debbie Harry have released “Gonna Be You” from the Paramount Pictures film 80 For Brady. The song is written by iconic Honorary Oscar, Grammy and Emmy Award-winning songwriter Diane Warren and produced by Damon Elliott.

The official music video accompanying the song features movie footage interspersed with segments of each singer performing and wearing a blinged out Tom Brady football jersey. The video was directed by 4x Cannes Gold Lion Award winner Alex Ogus.

“I’m so excited to be a part of 80 for Brady and the Diane Warren title song for it,” Parton shares. “Working with Jane, Lily, and Sally Field again, my older pals that are in the movie, and then working with all the wonderful artists on the song and video, like Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan and Debbie Harry was a joy. This is very exciting to me. I love feeling like I’m still part of something great and being with those gals that we know are great was a thrill.”

“What an honor to sing a song by my favorite songwriter with four other women who I have been a fan of for years! It doesn’t get much better than this,” states Carlisle.

“This was such a great project to be part of because it was nice to be able to join forces with my pals for the song,” comments Lauper. “Each of these women mean a lot to me. Friendships between women are important and I think Diane’s lyrics captured that. It was really touching. You don’t often see female buddy movies so this was fun.”

“When my good friend, Diane Warren invited me to be a part of ‘Gonna Be You’ and told me who’d be on it with me it was a resounding YES!” adds Estefan. “What an honor to share this incredible experience with women that I have admired for decades!”

The film is inspired by the true story of four best friends living life to the fullest when they take a wild trip to the 2017 Super Bowl LI to see their hero Tom Brady play. Starring Academy Award nominee Lily Tomlin, Academy Award winner Jane Fonda, Academy Award winner Rita Moreno and Academy Award winner Sally Field, with 7x Super Bowl Champion and producer Tom Brady, 80 for Brady is in-theaters February 3rd.
