JUNO Award-nominated and chart-topping Canadian all-girl teen pop supergroup Girl Pow-R have reimagined their hit single “This Is Us” into a visionary, uplifting anthem expressing immense gratitude for frontline workers during COVID-19. “Thanks To You” is available now!
“COVID-19 has changed everyone’s life,” says the band, “but more than anyone else, it is the frontline workers who have been there, making sure we have access to the care and services we need. We’ve created this remix of our song ‘This Is Us’ to reflect our support and thankfulness for these brave individuals.”
Ranging in age from 11 - 17, the members of Girl Pow-R are Canadian history makers in motion; as one of the youngest artists ever to be nominated for a Children’s Album of the Year JUNO Award, their late-2019 debut album This Is Us has garnered the group well over 1+ Million social streams, and countless media features in print, web, television and radio, including SiriusXM, Breakfast Television, CityTV, CP24 Breakfast, YTV, TVO Kids, eTalk Canada, Girls’ Life, Tiger Beat, J-14, Celeb Secrets, Fresh 95.3, and more.

Speaking of motion, those familiar with Girl Pow-R and their management team, led by Canyon Entertainment Group’s Dawn Van Dam, won’t be surprised the girls continue to roll up their sleeves to assist their communities; passionately advocating for social causes close to their hearts is an integral part of Girl Pow-R’s raison d’être, both as individuals, a band, and a growing movement.
At the onset of COVID-19, Girl Pow-R harnessed their expansive social reach to mobilize the masses by creating inspiring content encouraging fans around the world to help in any way they can. In the past, Girl Pow-R have helped contribute to charities who work on behalf of anti-war and anti-violence, SickKids, the Toronto Humane Society and SPCA, the Give and Restore Hope Children’s Charity, WE Movement, Food4Kids and anti-bullying.
“As a band, Girl Pow-R wants to continue to do our part and share ideas about how everyone can be a ‘helper’ to those who need support right now.”
In continuing their inspirational mission of spreading confidence, kindness, and ‘empow-r-ment’ among young women in the world today, Girl Pow-R saw their debut album’s title track “This Is Us” — the song “Thanks To You” is reinvented from — debut on the iTunes Canada Children’s chart at #2 and #15 in the U.S., all in the midst of a summer featuring back-to-back-(to-back) Canadian and U.S. tour stops.
