Idina Menzel & Chaka Khan Team Up For New Version of 'I'm Every Woman' For International Women's Day

Idina Menzel and Chaka Khan put a new twist on “I’m Every Woman” to celebrate 2021 International Women’s Day.

The two iconic singers teamed up with humanitarian organization CARE for their new campaign for the annual day, which celebrates the strength, resilience and leadership of women around the world throughout the month of March.

“I am honored to lend my voice to celebrate and inspire women on this International Women’s Day,” Chaka shared in a statement about the bold version of her 1978 song.

She adds, “I hope our rendition of ‘I’m Every Woman’ sheds light on the incredible strength of empowered women — women who are changing the world by leading their communities. We especially pay tribute to the female heroes who have been at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19 this past year.”

“I am so thrilled to be a part of this hopeful celebration of strength for International Women’s Day,” Idina added in her own statement. “Our version of ‘I’m Every Woman’ is a beautiful recognition of the power in every woman, especially the heroes on the frontlines who have been working tirelessly this past year to keep us safe and healthy.”

CARE’s campaign will include a weekly #IMEVERYWOMAN Virtual Conversation Series, with a speaker lineup that starts THIS Wednesday at 3/2c.

Late last year, Idina wrapped up production on Sony’s upcoming Cinderella movie. Check out the photo!

Angelina Jolie's Movie 'The One & Only Ivan' to Premiere on Disney+ Instead of In Theaters

The upcoming movie The One and Only Ivan will be released exclusively on the streaming service Disney+ instead of in theaters as originally planned!

Angelina Jolie produced the movie and she voices one of the characters in the film, which you’ll be able to watch on August 21.

Here is the synopsis: Ivan (Sam Rockwell) is a 400-pound silverback gorilla who shares a communal habitat in a suburban shopping mall with Stella the elephant (Jolie) and Bob the dog (Danny DeVito). He has few memories of the jungle where he was captured, but when a baby elephant named Ruby (Brooklynn Prince) arrives, it touches something deep within him. Ruby is recently separated from her family in the wild, which causes him to question his life, where he comes from and where he ultimately wants to be.

Bryan Cranston stars in the film and the movie also features the voices of Helen Mirren and Chaka Khan.

“The world has changed in a heartbeat. People all over the globe have shared important, life changing experiences in ways we have not seen for a century,” said director Thea Sharrock. “In response to this, I am so happy that we can share Katherine Applegate’s delightful and original story, The One and Only Ivan with the world this August on Disney+, bringing some joy through this unique movie of true friendship, inspired by a true story.”

Another movie that was supposed to go to theaters was just released on Disney+ today.
