New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Kristin Chenoweth has announced her new album, For The Girls. The album will feature Ariana
Grande, Dolly Parton, Jennifer Hudson
and Reba McEntire
to salute great female singers who have come before them.
Chenoweth's seventh album will be released on September
27, and features the interpretation of 12 classic songs identified with artists as Barbra Streisand
("The Way We Were"), Dinah Washington ("What a Diff'rence A Day Made"), Doris Day
("When I Fall In Love
"), Patsy Cline ("Crazy
"), Judy Garland
("The Man That Got Away"), Carole King
("Will You Love Me Tomorrow") and Linda
"I really wanted to pay homage to all the women singers who have influenced me over the years," Chenoweth said in a statement. "I wanted to make something that men could also enjoy, but this is by the girls and for the girls. These songs have all stood the test of time, and most of them are songs that I grew up listening to. It was a little intimidating, because people like Judy, Barbra and Dolly are the people who made me want to be a singer in the first place. I wanted to pay homage to these women and do them proud, but I also wanted to put my own stamp on it. And I think I was able to do that."
Grande will sing with Chenoweth on a remake of Lesley Gore's "You Don't Own Me," Hudson and McEntire join Chenoweth on "I'm A Woman," popularized by Peggy Lee, while Parton sings with Chenoweth on "I Will Always Love You."
