#EmpowerHerDance goes Global with Top TikTokers from Australia, New Zealand, Middle-East and the UK leading the Charge
HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 21 December 2022 – Tia Lee (Lee Yu Fen), a global C-POP singer, film and television actress, and fashion icon, has selected young women’s charity Teen’s Key in Hong Kong as the first beneficiary organization under the global #EmpowerHer campaign.
This follows the breakthrough success of Tia’s “Goodbye Princess” music video (MV), which achieved over 1 million views within 10 hours after its worldwide premiere. As of now, “Goodbye Princess” has garnered overwhelming support with more than 58 million views on YouTube within 12 days, far exceeding all previous global C-pop records. The overwhelming response underscores the borderless resonance of both the song and #EmpowerHer’s ‘Female Empowers Female’ initiative, marking Tia as a tireless advocate for female empowerment.
Tia Lee said, “I am so grateful for all the love and support for ‘Goodbye Princess’. I created it as a reminder that it is time for all of us – especially women – to embrace our strengths and rise up against the challenges that are holding us back. It takes a joint effort to achieve a truly inclusive and empowered world for all, which is why it’s so important that we all do our part to support charities and organisations like Teen’s Key in Hong Kong, who are doing incredible work in helping girls and women in need.”
The Resonant #EmpowerHer Campaign and What’s Next
The #EmpowerHer campaign is one of the biggest initiatives in the world to support female empowerment. For every viewing benchmark hit for the “Goodbye Princess” MV, a donation will be made to selected beneficiaries of the campaign, up to a maximum total of HKD3.8 million. This figure was chosen for its significance for the upcoming International Women’s Day, which falls on the 8th of March 2023.
Teen’s Key Hong Kong will be the first beneficiary organization after Tia personally pledged to support the empowerment of women worldwide. The MV’s views have an unprecedented number of views, reinforcing its meteoric rise – and the views are still pouring in. Other beneficiaries include the Daughters Of Tomorrow in Singapore and Beats by Girlz and Women in Music in the United States, as well as others to be named across the globe.
“We are proud and thankful to be the first recipient of the #EmpowerHer campaign, which represents everything that we believe in and fight for here at Teen’s Key – empowering young women to follow their own dreams. These funds will go a long way to supporting our work and enabling us to help more young women & girls. More importantly, we hope that the campaign’s message will spread throughout the world and inspire everyone to believe in themselves,” said Rachel Chow, Resource Development Manager, Teen’s Key Hong Kong.
