“So I heard this song the other day that objectified…
“Like how a single word can make a heart open…
I may only have one match, but I can make an explosion!”
Actress Elizabeth Banks co-produced and directed an all-star cast recording and video of Rachel Platten’s hit “Fight Song,” which features a host of stars from music, television and film. Co-produced by Bruce Cohen and Mike Thompkins, the a capella tune aired at the Democratic National Convention.
Banks, Sia, Alan Cumming, Aisha Tyler, Connie Britton, America Ferrera, Billy Porter, Eva Longoria, Idina Menzel, Jaime King, Jane Fonda, Julie Bowen, Kathy Najimy and literally dozens of others contributed to the tune, which they renamed as “Our Fight Song,” changing the “my fight song” lyric to encompass their collective endorsement of Clinton.
In this video, Elizabeth remembers when she heard Hillary talk back in 1992:
“Hillary Clinton rocked my world. A smart, committed, successful woman! And not for her own benefit, but a FIGHTER for women and children, COPS and First Responders, health care, and girls around the world.”
