Brian May holds up the red « world’s pinkest » special on I’m A Woman with We Will Rock You alumni to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Queen guitarist Brian May has teamed up with We Will Rock You alumni and musical theater regulars Mazz Murray, Kerry Ellis, Gina Murray and Anna-Jane Casey to record I’m A Woman, a released song to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I’m A Woman was originally recorded by Peggy Lee in 1962, and was a hit the following year The inspiration for the new version was to create something in memory of actress Rebekah Gibbs – better known as paramedic Nina Farr in the Casualty television series – who was diagnosed with grade 3 breast cancer in 2009 She died in 2014

« In particular we think of our dear friend and fellow interpreter Rebekah, whom we have lost, » Murray says, « but not before she has made a change in the rules of diagnosis and specialist referrals through which she saved so many lives »

“This recording was meant as a response to a call to promote this great cause for women’s health,” May says “But it has evolved into a beautifully steamy and provocative rock track in its own right. These four ladies all rock in a sensational way, and it was a pure joy to support their performances with my guitar

« I actually stole that low, dirty riff from [Bo Diddley] I’m Male, so I’d say this arrangement kicks more than any of the previous ones! Woman Rocks! »

The guitar May uses in the song video (below) is hers similar to her familiar Red Special, but the paint job is different, after May worked with BMG to create the ‘World’s Pinkest. Pink Guitar  »

« Try Google » pinkest rose « , suggests May » As far as I know, this is really the first pinkest pink guitar It has a weird effect on video cameras – coming out scorching « 

“Sometimes things happen for a reason,” says Ellis “This song waits backstage for the right time to make some noise! ​​The time is right! Cancer affects us all in one way or another and I beam with pride to have joined an incredible team of talented friends to produce a powerful performance and message

All proceeds from the registration will go to Target Ovarian Cancer and the Caron Keating Foundation
