Two well known Irish singers have teamed up for charity.
Sinead O'Connor and former Moloko vocalist Roisin Murphy have laid down a version of Chaka Khan's I’m Every Woman for ActionAid, a charity that reaches over 13 million of the poorest and most vulnerable people and helps them fight for and gain their rights to food, shelter, work, education, healthcare and a voice in the decisions that affect their lives.
“It’s a bit of a depressing version of the song, its more haunting and soulful but I think it represents what it’s about really well,” Murphy told the BBC.
“I felt if we do it in a way that’s dark and somber I thought we could get people talking about it,” said Amanda Ghost, President of Epic Records and producer of the track. “I think it’s really quite sad and mournful. We made this folky recording and I think it’s a real contrast to the original.”
