GIRL POW-R pop rock all girls band to perform at Georgetown Rib Fest this weekend
A pop rock group consisting of 10 to 15 year olds will be taking the stage this weekend.
The group, called GIRL POW-R, will be singing and dancing to original music, and covers, at the Georgetown Rib Fest this Saturday.
GIRL POW-R was formed this past April, and by next month, they will have performed in over 40 shows and have memorized 24 songs and choreography. Of the 14 girls, some of them sing, some of them play instruments, and all of them dance.
A key message of the group is empowerment and being strong in social situations — more specifically, bullying.
Dawn Van Dam, the founder of GIRL POW-R, said the group started after watching her children go through bullying at school.

Girl Pow-R, a Toronto-based all-girl pop-rock group, is slated to perform at Hamilton Ribfest at Gage Park on Aug. 12 at 11 a.m.
Singing original music, Girl Pow-R consists of 14 talented female musicians, aged 10 to 15.
Each band member works toward a social cause, such as improving girls education across the world, fighting homelessness, or healthy eating. The group was launched earlier this year in conjunction with International Women’s Day.
Girl Pow-R strives to provide a positive influence for adolescent girls. The group’s overall goal is to encourage others to be their best through music and lyrics.

Canyon Entertainment Group Announces World-Class Team
Canyon Entertainment Group is proud to announce the addition of two world-class organizations to the Girl Pow-R team who will be instrumental in the training and development of this band, a new all-girl pop rock group for young women ages 11 to 14. In conjunction with Canyon Entertainment Group, these organizations, Invisible Werks and PG Productions, will be directly involved in choosing the girls for the group, creating and producing the original music, and training the girls vocally, to enhance their skills.
Girl Pow-R is an opportunity for the voices of young women in the pre-teen to early teen years to speak to their peers in a fresh, new voice. Therefore, Canyon Entertainment Group is partnering with these two organizations to be able to provide world-class training, coaching, guidance and music, in order to best prepare them for this opportunity.
