Rita Wilson is working with Zumba to share a new track for the International Women’s Day + Free Class Fundraiser
“Hello World” is a bridge that connects women of all backgrounds and ages through the power of music, movement, diversity and strength. After a generally challenging year, the song is a welcome anthem with a new sense of hope. Its energetic, pulsating beat is combined with musical influences from around the world, resulting in a melting pot of styles and sounds that are crowned with an inspiring message. Rita sings, “We can dance until we fall, we’ll just keep walking through the dirt and pain. So we learn to be strong, to light a fire in your soul. Let it burn, let it burn. Keep getting up.” Enough enough – say hello world. “The track shows a fun new musical side to Rita, whose more intimate music spans the pop / country space. The music video reflects the track in its joyous optimism representing women around the world, and features Rita alongside an international cast of influencers in the world of Zumba doing what they love – dancing.
The origins of “Hello World” were completely organic. Rita went to a wellness center and loved Zumba, the popular international fitness program. She immediately clicked with her teacher Michele LaRocque. LaRocque, in turn, admired Rita’s singing / songwriting talents and led her to introduce Rita to the Zumba team. The two parties clicked immediately, quickly began working on a song and “Hello World” was born.
Wilson comments, “The joy of being able to move or dance without inhibition or judgment, and just for the joy of it, inspired me to partner with Zumba to co-write and perform this song ‘Hello World’.” My Zumba teacher, Michele LaRocque was such a positive force through her energy and spirit, I saw her and said, “I’ll have what she has!” I really hope this song will get people to make music and dance to their hearts’ content. You just can’t be in a bad mood while getting these endorphins going. Dropping the song for International Women’s Day, along with the talents of Claudia Leitte, and Raja Kumari, highlights how women have always worked together to get things done. See you on the dance floor or maybe in your garden! In any case, I am honored to say hello world. “
Sergio Minski Adds Zumba, “What began as an introduction to Rita by her Zumba instructor Michele LaRocque has grown into a song with three extremely talented artists and a strong message that is needed now more than ever. Zumba has always been a platform who connects people and music around the world, and we’re delighted that everyone is as inspired by Hello World as we are. “
