The legendary Chaka Khan has announced plans for a new single with part of the proceeds to help victims of domestic violence and discrimination!
According to Billboard, the singer will release a new single, “I Love Myself,” on Feb. 19, which promotes self-esteem and acceptance. To help spread this positivity, Chaka has asked fans to submit a one-minute video clip of themselves lip-synching to the song’s chorus by the release date. The winning clips will then be featured in the visuals for the song at a later date. You can learn more about the contest at http://ilovemyself.votigo.com/!
“It is important that in these troubled times we honor our own self-respect,” the singer said. “Beauty knows no boundaries and is accepting of us all whether black, white, gay, straight, physically or mentally challenged.”
Chaka has also announced that a percentage of the single’s net proceeds will benefit two organizations, Face Forward and Stomp Out Bullying! This is a great way for others to celebrate and show love to themselves, in spite of their flaws. It’s also awesome that Chaka is using this opportunity to give back to charity!
