Brave New Girls (Cady’s Song)
ABOUT: BRAVE NEW GIRLS (CADY’s SONG)
CD Description: Brave New Girls (Cady’s Song) is an original composition co-authored by Teresa and collaborator, Brett Jones.
Inspired by Teresa’s long time friend, Rocket Scientist, Astronaut Catherine (Cady) Coleman. The song accompanied Cady and the STS-93 Crew on their historic mission in 1999. The Mission Wake-Up Song was also performed live at the launch by Teresa for then First Lady, Hillary Clinton & First Daughter, Chelsea.
STS-93 marked the 95th launch of the Space Shuttle, the 26th launch of Columbia, and the 21st night launch of a Space Shuttle. Eileen Collins became the first female shuttle Commander on this flight. Its primary payload was the Chandra X-ray Observatory.
The launch was originally scheduled for 20 July but the launch was aborted at T−7 seconds. The successful launch of the flight occurred 3 days later. The payload was also the heaviest payload ever carried by the Space Shuttle system, at over 22.7 tonnes (25 tons).
Brave New Girls has become one of Teresa’s signature songs, adopted by not only NASA in celebration of the first female commanded space mission, but as an anthem for Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. The song has garnered invitations to perform at the historic STS-93 Mission, the launch of the International Space Station, and the Obama White House.
