‘Twenty-first-century Woman’ was a ground-breaking musical project for International Women’s Day 2019. Its centrepiece is a brand new gospel-style song for women’s voices and band, composed by Joanna Forbes L’Estrange, with lyrics inspired by Oprah Winfrey’s famous 2018 Golden Globes acceptance speech. It was recorded at Abbey Road Studios on 22nd November 2018 (St Cecilia’s Day) by stars of London’s West End, singers from Hollywood film soundtracks and an all-female band of top London session musicians. The Twenty-first-century Woman single was released on all music platforms on 8 March 2019, International Women’s Day. All proceeds from downloads of the song are being donated to Her Future Coalition, a charity providing shelter, education and employment to girls in India who were victims of human trafficking and gender violence.
