Serena Williams is a woman of many talents, so she’s putting them to use for Breast Cancer Awareness month. But the tennis superstar isn’t swinging the racquet or hitting the court. Instead, she wants to sing you a song.

In a video posted on Instagram, Williams sings a cover of “I Touch Myself” by Australian rock band Diviynls. As Williams points out in her caption, Divinyls lead singer Chrissy Amphlett died of breast cancer in 2013.

“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,” Serena wrote. “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.”

Serena’s music video is a part of the Touch Myself Project, established in 2014 in Amphlett’s honor. A champion for women, Williams battled sexism throughout the U.S. Open, but isn’t afraid to take on another role of advocacy.
