Nashville – March 8, 2021 – Singer Sarah Lake has been inspired by the strides women have made in their quest for equality. She put pen to paper and wrote “She Did,” a new song and video being released to coincide with International Women’s Day on March 8.
A catchy musical survey of female achievements, “She Did” mentions both Rosa Parks and astronaut Sally Ride. The video features her 9-year-old daughter Emanuella and highlights local Nashville charities.
Because they broke the chains and changed the world
Broke the mold gave us a turn
And they said she’d never get those shoes to fit
I had the idea to write “She Did” about a year ago,” said Lake. “I wanted to express how important the women trailblazers have been to me and to so many. After we wrote it I also realized how important it was for my daughter to know these women and to understand women’s history. I posted a video of her and I singing the song for International Women’s Day 2020 and received such a positive, warm reaction. What a wild year it has been for so many reasons.
In January, when a woman of African American, South Asian American descent took office and was photographed wearing her Converse, this song took on a whole new meaning to Lake.
“I felt it was important to release ‘She Did’ on International Women’s Day, March 8 2021, in hopes that everyone who hears it can celebrate how far women have come and the sacrifices that were made along the way.”
Lake hopes that regardless of political views, the world can continue opening doors and creating opportunities for future female generations.
