Song of the Week and Womens Day!

Happy Women's Day to all females out there! This international day is all about women empowerment and how important our role is in society. Therefore I will be posting posts all week long that show truly powerful women in the music biz. To start of, our song of the week is Independent Woman by Destiny's Child. Yeah I know its kind of an old song but it truly shows how tough we are. Whats also great about this song is that its from the Charlies Angels soundtrack, which is a movie all about showing female power.

You probably know who Beyonce is, but before becoming THE Beyonce. she was part of a girls music group called Destiny's Child. Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams are the other two ladies that make up this group. Their music was a mix of R&B/Hip-Hop and Pop. They were one of the biggest selling female groups in history and represented women power in all of their songs. The group officially split in 2001 in Barcelona but each member continued down their paths alone in the music business.

I heard this song a long time ago and all day long in school I was thinking how I was going to make this my song of the week. If you listen to the lyrics they are all about how women can make it on their own and don't need a man to survive. The rhythm of the song is also good but the main focus is the voice of the singers and the lyrics.

I hope you enjoy this song and if you are a woman, that it empowers you and makes you feel unstoppable!
