The Varsity Girls Record A Cover Of Beyonce’s “Halo” To Be Used As Theme Song
BOSTON, MA, December 9, 2010 - The Varsity Girls, an all-female teen sensation pop group, continues to break into the national music scene this Friday when their recording of Beyonce's “Halo” will be played as the theme song for Nickelodeon's Teen Nick Halo Awards. The show, hosted by Nick Cannon and including appearances by Mariah Carey, Rosario Dawson, Wyclef Jean and Ashton Kutcher, airs December 10 at 8PM.
It is an honor for a relatively new group, such as The Varsity Girls, who came together less than a year ago, to be given the opportunity to have their music heard nationally. It is an even greater honor to be asked to record a rendition one of Beyonce's songs.
"The girls were thrilled when they learned that Nickelodeon wanted them to be involved in the Halo Awards project. The show, which recognizes teens that have made an impact in their communities, fits with the positive messages contained in The Varsity Girls original music, including their hit sing "Be You" which they hope will serve as inspiration to kids when peer pressure and bullying is at an all-time high," said Jeff Gulko of Book Hill Sports and Entertainment, the brand marketing partner of The Varsity Girls.
Being in the spotlight is nothing new to the girls, ages 15-18. In the last few months, The Varsity Girls performed for President Barack Obama and the City of Boston Tree Lighting ceremony, received a nomination for Best Pop Artist from the prestigious Boston Music Awards and headlined a Back to School Tour sponsored by Walmart! They have also performed at a number of venues including Fenway Park and Gillette Stadium.
The Varsity Girls, who are under the management of Sure Fire Music Group, will be releasing their second single titled "Fairytale", a song the girls worked with Brooke Hogan in creating, later this month. The girls are also currently collaborating with P!NK on an upcoming project.
"I'm extremely proud of the girls’ accomplishments to date and see only great things on the horizon for them. The Varsity Girls are uniquely positioned to continue growing their fan base as an all-girl teen pop group that not only sings and dances, but also plays instruments including electric and acoustic guitars as well as piano. And on top of that both parents and kids love the positive and empowering messages contained within the girls songs", said Jared Hancock of Sure Fire Music Group.
