UK songstress Estelle makes a proud and powerful statement, while benefiting a great cause, with the release of her new song, “Woman’s World.”
Estelle is one of several artists including John Legend and Mary J. Blige who have teamed up with Planned Parenthood for the forthcoming box set/digital stream, 7 Inches For Planned Parenthood.
The goal of the project is simple ― 100 percent of proceeds from the album will go towards supporting Planned Parenthood.
Estelle talked to Huffington Post’s Black Voices about her contribution to the project, saying: “Every single time I’ve heard a song about women holding something down or being powerful, it’s a slow ballad. I wanted to make this powerful, make it push, make it go. We’re not asking to run the world — we run it.”
On Planned Parenthood, she continues, “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. Because guess what? If there was no us — there’d be no them.”
