VIDEO: Topless Serena Williams sings to support Breast Cancer Awareness campaign
Serena Williams has shown off her singing voice as she took part in a Breast Cancer Awareness video.
The 23-time Grand Slam winner sang the Divinyls hit ‘I touch myself’, promoting the importance of early detection in the fight against the illness.
“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,” Williams wrote on Instagram.
“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 colours, all around the world. Early detection is key — it saves so many lives.”
The song was co-written by Divinyls Australian vocalist Chrissy Amphlett who died of breast cancer five years ago aged 53.
“The music video is part of the I Touch Myself Project which was created in honour 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.
