The moment that Kalie Shorr saw hundreds of people stand in solidarity while dressed all in black at the Golden Globe Awards, she felt an important call to her heart to add a musical element to the cause.
After a number of women in the entertainment industry came together to form Time’s Up, a movement for women in entertainment to stop discrimination, abuse and harassment for all, Shorr began to think about how this would not only impact her and her friends directly, but also her future family including daughters and granddaughters alike.
Penning an empowering song worthy of the fight, Shorr reached out to her Song Suffragettes for some back-up and they came guns blazing in support of her words.
“Me and the girls were watching the Golden Globes, drinking wine and wearing all black. During one of the many inspiring speeches that night, I just felt the weight of what was happening — how I was going to tell my daughters and granddaughters about this one day. It came together so easily and flawlessly because the amazing girls of Song Suffragettes were so passionate about the cause and willing to move around their schedules to make it happen. The team behind Song Suffragettes hustled so hard to make this project come to life making our idea a reality. I have been so inspired by this whole reckoning that’s been happening and it just felt so obvious to connect that to what we do at Song Suffragettes,” Shorr said of the production.
In the video for “Time’s Up,” Shorr is seen leading her ladies around with the all-black ensemble memo in tow as they belt the strengthening words of each verse and chorus. Exalting and embracing the power of women throughout their powerful lyrics, each singer provides their own sense of style and grace to captivate the unprecedented actions going on in the entertainment industry as a whole.
Hoping for justice one motion at a time, the Song Suffragettes’ harmonious plea for change create a universal understanding that degrading women and hiding behind lies in threatening situations is over for good.
