Dolly Parton, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan & More Release ’80 For Brady’ Track “Gonna Be You” With Music Video

An all-star group of singers featuring Dolly Parton, Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan and Debbie Harry have just released a brand-new track, “Gonna Be You.” The release will be featured on the soundtrack for the Paramount Pictures film, 80 FOR BRADY, which arrives in theaters on February 3.

“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,” shared 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,” added 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.”

The release of “Gonna Be You” is accompanied by an upbeat, carefree music video featuring movie footage mixed with clips of each iconic singer performing the track.

“I’m so excited to be a part of 80 for Brady and the Diane Warren title song for it. 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,” gushed Parton.

Estefan commented, “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! What an honor to share this incredible experience with women that I have admired for decades!”

The new single was penned by honorary Oscar, Grammy and Emmy Award-winning songwriter Diane Warren. The storyline for 80 FOR BRADY was sparked by the true story of four best friends who vow to live life to the fullest as they embark on an adventurous trip to the 2017 Super Bowl LI in hopes to watch their hero Tom Brady play.

“When I wrote ‘Gonna Be You’ for 80 FOR BRADY, I wanted to write a song that celebrated these women’s deep friendship,” shared Warren. “Since 80 was in the title I got a crazy idea, why not get some of the most iconic singers from the 80s, who are still amazing and always will be, to all sing it?!!!! Everyone I approached said yes and was just as excited as me!! I’m honored 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 along to with all your good friends!!!”

The lighthearted film stars Academy Award nominee Lily Tomlin, Academy Award winner Jane Fonda, Academy Award winner Rita Moreno and Academy Award winner Sally Field. Seven-time Super Bowl Champion and producer Tom Brady will also make an appearance.
