A 4th Grade Math Teacher from Fort Worth, Texas wrote a viral song/video promoting young female positivity calling the movement #LittleGirlMagic.
Big s/o @mayfieldmath @hashtagmandi @thepenkilla, and Fort Worth students Pareece Morehouse and Ciara Wade for stopping by the studio to discuss their inspiring #LittleGirlMagic music video that went viral! Be sure to check out their video and repost it! #LittleGirlMagic #EllenShow #979thebeat #liveandloca #vedalocainthemorning
“Little girl magic to us is basically saying to us that you can be a female, and you can do things on your own, that you can be strong. You don’t need nobody else,” Morehouse said.
“I wanted to just let these young girls know that they can thrive and be successful no matter what, so I wanted to put a positive spin on the Demi Lavato’s smash hit ‘Sorry Not Sorry,'”Mayfield said.
And that’s exactly what they did. Amanda Maxfield, a professional singer, donated her time, a recording studio and arranged the vocals.
“If we are going to empower girls, what does it mean to empower girls? And we thought ‘Little Girl Magic’ and that’s when we came up with the lyrics from there,” Morehouse said.
“That really gave me goosebumps to see those young ladies speaking those parts and really taking on those parts to be the true lives that they are living, it’s really a moment in time,” Mayfield said.
A message from the #LittleGirlMagic Girls:
“We don’t talk about violence. We talk about motivation and actually making goals in life,” Morehouse said.
A positive message they hope resonates with as many young people as possible during this holiday season.
