From being a phenomenal tennis player, Serena Williams is not only a hands-on mother and an entrepreneur, and now she has emerged as a singer and showed off her skills for a great cause. On Sunday, Serena Williams shared a video of herself topless singing I Touch Myself to encourage women to examine their breasts for early signs of breast cancer.

Along with the video shared on Instagram, Serena wrote, “On 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.”

The athlete further admitted, “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. It's likely that whoever sees the video will be compelled to be more conscious of their health and hopefully spread that awareness to friends and family members."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

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
