Girl Scouts USA is typically known for their cookies that everyone loves. However, they decided to add more to their repertoire and add music making into their list.

It was announced on Thursday that they recorded an original song with actual Girl Scouts on backup vocals.

The track called “Watch Me Shine” is used in a Girl Scouts PSA called “I’m Prepared.”

The new PSA praises girls for being leaders, problem solvers, and innovators.

The song, which is now available on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Music, was written by Liz Rose. Rose is a Grammy winner who has worked with artists such as Taylor Swift, Little Big Town, and Emily Shackleton.

Shackleton was also picked as the lead singer of “Watch Me Shine.”

Part of the proceeds received from the song will go toward the Girl Scouts Organization.
