amanda ghost, micachu, alessi’s ark, thecocknbullkid, róisín murphy, and sinéad o’connor have joined force to record a cover of chaka khan’s “i’m every woman” for actionaid in a campaign called “the six degrees project” to see an end to discrimination against women around the globe in order to eradicate poverty.

the campaign is inspired by the famous theory, six degrees of seperation which suggests if a person is one step away from each person they know and two steps away from each person who is known by one of the people they know, then everyone is at most six steps away from any other person on earth.

the new dark & soulful rendition of “i’m every woman” started by amanda ghost, then passed the next artist to record their voice and sent it on to the next artist. now the track is complete and is available for free download from actionaid.org.uk/6degrees.
