Dolly Parton, Debbie Harry, Cyndi Lauper, Belinda Carlisle, and Gloria Estefan have formed the supergroup to end all supergroups.

Though it might end up only being a one-time thing, only once in a blue moon do this many pop icons assemble in the same place.

The song, which is entitled Gonna Be You and credited primarily to Dolly and American songwriter Dianne Warren, is on the soundtrack to 2023 movie 80 For Brady.

Based on a true story, 80 For Brady follows four elderly best friends who travel across America to see New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the Super Bowl.

Speaking about the song, Dianne explained how the concept came to mind, and how excited she was to get each popstar involved.

She said: ‘I wanted to write a song that celebrated these women’s deep friendship. Everyone I approached said yes and was just as excited as me!’

Another said: ‘Loved it! All music legends. And the Conga Queen Gloria Estefan doesn’t seem to age! Wow, two of my favourites together, Dolly and Gloria!’

Directed by first-timer Kyle Marvin, 80 For Brady stars Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno, Sally Field, and Lily Tomlin, as well as Tom Brady himself.

The movie will also feature cameos from members of the New England Patriots 2017 squad, celebrity chef Guy Fieri, and actor Bob Balaban.

Earlier this month, Dolly shared her tributes to Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, who died at the age of 54.

‘Lisa Marie, may you rest in peace. We all love all of you,’ the Jolene singer said, while paying tribute to the late Hound Dog singer.

See 80 For Brady in cinemas from March 23.
