press play on estelle's anthem for planned parenthood
The London singer joins in the global fight to save Planned Parenthood.
Despite her roots in West London, Estelle has joined the league of artists on the upcoming benefit album Seven inches for Planned Parenthood; a compilation of new and unreleased music donated by musicians around the world. In the face of dangerous funding cuts, Björk, St. Vincent, Mary J. Blige, John Legend, Sleater-Kinney, and Chvrches have all contributed songs to the record, which will directly benefit the nonprofit organisation.
Estelle's offering, Woman's World, is a no-holds barred tribute to female power. "Every single time I've heard a song about women holding something down or being powerful, it's a slow ballad," she explained to the Huffington post. "I wanted to make this powerful, make it push, make it go. We're not asking to run the world — we run it."
Comparing the universal healthcare in her home country to America's, the singer said, "Bear this in mind, we have a version of Planned Parenthood at home — it's called National Healthcare." She continued, "the headlines are wrong, as far as 'all they do is give abortions' are wrong. It's not just that. Planned Parenthood offers basic rights to healthcare that we should all have as women." Press play on Woman's World below.
