Madonna may be prepping to unveil a new song that has been referred to as “Secret Project” within her camp of compadres. The project is rumored to be a civil rights song and video addressing women’s empowerment.
The debut could come this weekend at the Sound of Change Live concert, a global charity event for female empowerment broadcast globally from London, England.
From the Examiner:
Madonna shot the video for her secret project last December and recorded a new song that deals with feminist power earlier this year. The name of the song was tentatively titled “Back of the Bus,” but that could change in the final version. It is said to be one of the most powerful ballads Madonna has haver come up with. It compares the struggle women face around the world with the Civil Rights Movement that started in the 1950s.
Madonna has always been an outspoken advocate for women’s rights as well as gay rights. In the 1980s, when gay men were dropping like flies because of AIDS, Madonna preached tolerance through her albums, videos, and concert performances. She risked her career by defending the gay community, but gave them a much needed voice at a time when even our own president, Ronald Reagan, was homophobic.
Madonna has a special place in her heart for empowering young women. In 1989, she released the song “Express Yourself,” which became an anthem for women’s rights.
The four hour concert, which begins at 1:00 p.m. EDT, will include inspirational and provocative films and stories highlighting women’s issues around the world.
