Dolly Parton, Cyndi Lauper & More Team Up For Inspirational Song For ’80 For Brady’


When you have that many legends in a movie, you need that many legends to tackle the soundtrack.

Dolly Parton, Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan and Debbie Harry are all collaborating on “Gonna Be You,” the new single from the upcoming “80s for Brady” movie, about a group of older women who head to the Super Bowl to see playing Tom Brady. (The story takes place in 2017, when Brady was still with the New England Patriots.)

The uplifting song and video were released on January 20. The video (which does not include Harry) shows the singers in sequined Brady sweaters, with clips of the film interspersed.

The movie stars Sally Field, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Rita Moreno, along with Brady himself.

“It’s gonna be you / Who’s coming to my rescue when I’m drowning / Into the cold, deep water, yes you’re gonna dive in / You pull me through,” the iconic singers shout in the song’s chorus.

It’s a happy bop that has already won fans.

“Sensational talents in this feel good anthem! I love it, so catchy!” one person wrote on YouTube.

I am honored to have Dolly Parton, Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan and Debbie Harry on this track!! ‘Gonna Be You’ is that song you want to sing along with all your good friends!!!”
