Six degrees of Róisín Murphy (and friends)

Amanda Ghost, the new President of Epic Records (and a fine singer) has teamed up with five great women - Róisín Murphy, Sinead O’Connor, Micachu, thecocknbullkid and Alessi’s Ark - to record a cover of Chaka Khan’s I’m Every Woman for ActionAid. It's available NOW as a free download from www.actionaid.org.uk/6degrees .

Amanda Ghost started the track and passed it on first to Micachu and Alessi’s Ark, who added their vocals and then sent around to the other women. It's a clever idea, yes?

ActionAid says this about the project:

The Six Degrees project is inspired by the idea that we are all only six introductions away from everybody else on the planet... Show your support for women around the world fighting for an end to the violence and discrimination that keeps poor women poor. Download I’m Every Woman and share it with six friends.
