Disney's Friends for Change Games will be coming to your TV's this summer and "Good Luck Charlie" star Bridgit Mendler performed and co-wrote the anthem "We Can Change the World."
The music video for the song will premiere TONIGHT on Radio Disney at 7pm EST and Disney Channel in the 7pm EST hour. Beginning Saturday, June 11, the song will be available on Disney.com/ProjectGreen and the music video will be available at iTunes. Coinciding with its premiere, Disney will donate $250,000 to the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund benefiting global charities. "We Can Change the World" is the third Disney's Friends for Change anthem. Previous songs have helped raise more than $800,000 for conservation projects around the globe.
Bridgit took some time from filming the video to answer a few interview questions for Cambio. She shared, "I love that Disneys' Friends for Change games pairs up with a musical project because I think music is a great way of spreading a message in a fun way that kids will listen."
Bridgit also told us about her upcoming album. "I literally just signed with Hollywood Records so that's super exciting but I haven't actually been able to get started on it yet. We're looking forward to getting into the studio."
