This little girl's empowering song inspired by Hillary Clinton's concession speech has everyone welling up

“You are valuable, powerful, deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue your dreams.” *weeps*

FOLLOWING HER DEFEAT to Donald Trump in the presidential election, Hillary Clinton delivered a speech in which she spoke directly to “all the little girls watching”.

You are valuable, powerful, deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue your dreams.

The line has since become a rallying cry of sorts for women with many quoting it at the recent Women’s March.

Three months on and it’s still Hillary Clinton’s pinned tweet, having been retweeted over 665,000 times and liked 1.2 million times.

This afternoon, Hillary Clinton shared a song called To All The Little Girls written by a young girl named Isolde Fair.

Fair wrote the song as part of an assignment in her all-girl music theory class after her teacher handed out a section of Clinton’s concession speech and tasked her students with writing a song based on it.

Fair wrote a song based on the “To all the little girls…” portion and enlisted her classmates from Sol La Music Academy in Santa Monica to accompany her on strings.

The result is pretty special.

Clinton shared the song on Twitter earlier and wrote, “Thanks to Isolde Fair & her classmates for this inspiring song. I’m with YOU.”

Let’s just say it’s bringing a lot of emotions to the surface again…
