When the lead singer of Divinyls Chrissy Amphlett learned that her breast cancer was terminal, she set about repurposing her hit 1990 hit ‘I Touch Myself’ to encourage breast cancer awareness.

Before her death in April 2013, Amphlett announced her new vision for the song which was a groundbreaking anthem of female sexuality.

A host of celebrities, including Olivia Newton-John, have now collaborated with Cancer Council New South Wales to record a moving acapella cover of the song in honour of Chrissy and to raise awareness of the importance of self-examination.

Amphlett’s widower Charley Drayton said: “She would have wanted us to be more in touch with ourselves - to listen to what’s going on inside physically, and to be more in charge of our destiny,and not wait for doctors or advisors to be in charge of us.”
