‘I Touch Myself’ was the Divinyls’ biggest hit and touched millions of fans around the globe. Released in December 1990, the single was No. 1 on the charts at home and reached the Top 5 in the US.
Like Chrissy, this song is bold, brave and brassy and it is a song that celebrates female sexuality like no other. When Chrissy developed breast cancer, it was a song she wanted to repurpose as an anthem for spreading awareness about the importance of touching ourselves for early detection of the disease.
Ten of Australia’s greatest singers: Connie Mitchell; Deborah Conway; Kate Cerebrano; Katie Noonan; Little Pattie; Megan Washington; Olivia Newton-John; Sarah Blasko; Sarah McLeod; and Suze DeMarchi have come together to make Chrissy’s final wish a reality.
