Jordin Sparks has teamed up with the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition to motivate Americans to get healthy and active “One Step at a Time.”

On Tuesday, the American Idol alum, hip-hop artist Doug E. Fresh and children’s artist Brady Rymer released their new song “Zero to Sixty,” and PEOPLE has an exclusive first listen.

“Today’s the day to start fresh / Put your body up to the test / You can go fast or slow, it don’t matter, get up and go,” Sparks sings on “Zero to Sixty.” “What are you waiting for? Move your body now / Live free.”

The new track will serve as the theme song for the #0to60 Campaign, which marks the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition’s 60th anniversary of inspiring Americans to get active and be healthy.

“Adopting a healthy lifestyle continues to be an extremely important personal mission to me, and I am excited for this new song to motivate more kids and families to have fun while being active and healthy together,” Sparks, 26, said.

The Council worked with the National Foundation on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition, as well as the nonprofit Hip-Hop Public Health and Sparks – who just launched her own youth empowerment program, M.A.D. Kids (short for “making a difference”) – to create the healthy living anthem.

“Zero to Sixty” is the first official song to come out of the President’s Council since “Chicken Fat,” a track released under the Kennedy Administration in the 1960s.
