The tennis star sings in tune.

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

    no, she sings in autotune

    • Dominic Stafford says:

      It is, indeed, heavily auto-tuned; but auto-tune exists for situations such as this.

      And she’s one of the greatest athletes of modern times, so you forgive a lot.

    • Scotty says:

      The heavy auto-tune is used as an effect, as with much pop music released nowadays. Maybe there is pitch correction as well. Who knows? If not, she’s surprising in tune. If so, so what. She’s an athlete volunteering for a good cause.

  • Elizabeth Owen says:

    Good for her. At least she has tried.

  • Bruce says:

    It’s a very worthy cause and deserves all the attention it can garner. Serena’s video will help, in a big or small way. Good for her.

  • Robert Holmén says:

    Breast Cancer is one of the most publicly-awared illnesses on the planet.

    Breast Cancer “awareness” has become a big business with highly paid executives.

    One famous foundation pays its CEO $600,000 per year and pays a former CEO, who apparently does no work for the foundation, nearly $400,000 per year.

    It spends twice as much on “awareness” as on research.

    Perhaps more useful would be money to pay for the treatments which seem to be quite expensive.

    Or perhaps the money should be spent to raise “awareness” about other diseases that need attention.
