Amphlett, an Australian native who co-wrote the song and recorded it as the lead singer of the Divinyls (it reached No. 1 in Australia and No. 4 in the US), died a year ago after a battle against breast cancer and multiple sclerosis.
The 'I touch myself project' campaign, by JWT Sydney for Cancer Council, features a video in which Olivia Newton John, Megan Washington, Sarah McLeod, Katie Noonan, Sarah Blasko, Suze DeMarchi, Deborah Conway, Kate Ceberano, Little Pattie and Connie Mitchell sing an appropriately stripped-down, soulful version of the song.
Proceeds from purchases of the video (available on iTunes and Google Play) go to the Cancer Council.
The campaign includes two 60-second TVCs, radio, digital billboards, the website developed and designed by SOAP Creative and a PR campaign by Hill+Knowlton Strategies. In social-media, the campaign is asking people to share the ways that breast cancer has touched them using the hashtags #itouchmyselfprroject or #itouchmyselfie.
