New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Saban Brands announced today a partnership with chart-topping pop music girl group, Blush, for its new Netflix original series for kids, Glitter Force. Blush, who is made up of five female members from all different parts of Pan-Asia, has recorded the Glitter Force theme song and performed additional tracks to be featured in music videos throughout the series. The 20-episode first season of Glitter Force is set to premiere on December 18, 2015, available worldwide on Netflix, excluding Asia.
The Blush members include Angeli Flores from the Philippines, Natsuko "Nacho" Danjo from Japan, Alisha Budhrani from India, Victoria
"Queen V" Chan from China and Nikita
Vecino from the Philippines. Formed in 2010, Blush has seen unprecedented success thanks to their world-class talent and dynamic personalities. Their music is edgy and fun combining the pop, R&B and dance genres, and delivered by five gifted girls on a mission! Blush is also the only Pan-Asian music group to-date to have their first two singles hit No. 1 ("Dance On") and No. 3 ("Undivided" feat. Snoop Dogg) on a major U.S. Billboard chart.
Glitter Force is an adapted version of Toei Animation's successful Japanese anime television series, Pretty Cure (or PreCure). The new series follows five preteen girls who learn that they are a legendary superhero squad known as the Glitter Force and must defend Earth from evil fairytale villains.
"The members of Blush are much like the Glitter Force squad, a real-life group of extremely talented women, which makes them a perfect fit for this show," said Janet
Hsu, CEO of Saban Brands. "The songs they've recorded bring a very special energy to Glitter Force and we know fans are going to love singing and dancing along as they watch the adventures unfold in this first season."
"As a music group, we're always looking for new and unique opportunities, and partnering with Glitter Force has been just that," said Victoria
Chan, member of Blush. "We've had an amazing experience lending our voices to this fun new series and can't wait for fans to get the chance to watch and listen!"
The Glitter Force music sung by Blush will be digitally released via iTunes and Amazon in 2016. Click here to check out a behind-the-scenes video of Blush's recording session and visit the official Glitter Force YouTube channel for more information!
