No doubt that Serena Williams is a woman of many talents. This time she has invested one of her talents for a noble cause. She has recorded a topless music video to raise awareness for breast cancer.

“I Touch Myself”

Williams, in a video posted on Instagram, sings a cover of “I Touch Myself” by Australian rock band Diviynls. She has sung the 1991 hit song’s version, in support of Breast Cancer Network Australia. BERLEI, Australia premium women’s lingerie wear, proudly supports the project.

This Breast Cancer Awareness Month I’ve recorded a version of The Divinyls global hit “I Touch Myself” to remind women to self-check regularly. _ Yes, this put me out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to do it because it’s an issue that affects all women of all colors, all around the world. Early detection is key – it saves so many lives. I just hope this helps to remind women of that. _ The music video is part of the I Touch Myself Project which was created in honor of celebrated diva, Chrissy Amphlett, who passed away from breast cancer, and who gave us her hit song to remind women to put their health first. The project is proudly supported by @BerleiAus for Breast Cancer Network Australia. _ Visit the link in my bio to find out more. #ITouchMyselfProject #BerleiAus #BCNA #DoItForYourself

Williams, who celebrated her 37th birthday on September 26, also honoured Amphlett thanking her for reminding women to consider their health a priority. The music video, Wiiliams writes, is part of the I Touch Myself Project.

“Chrissy was passionate about spreading awareness of the importance of early detection and wanted the global hit song ‘I Touch Myself’ to be adapted as an anthem for breast health around the world,” according to the initiative.

Reminder for women to self-check regularly

Chrissy Amphlett, lead singer of Divinyls, who had co-written the song, who died of breast cancer in 2013, aged 53. “The project aims to honour celebrated diva, Chrissy Amphlett, who gave us her hit song to remind women to put their health first,” wrote the 23-time Grand Slam champion.
