Over 20 female celebrities and hundreds of women from across the UK are part of Cancer Research UK's unique charity single; a re-recording of Cyndi Lauper's 80s classic 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun'. Leading the vocals is DJ and singer Sonique, who has just finished her treatment for breast cancer. The single also features a range of celebrities including Kym Marsh, Caroline Quentin and Lucie Jones and is out on 26th April 2010 to mark the start of the Race for Life series − the UK's largest women-only fundraising event.

Already generating a huge buzz with national media since its announcement last month, the single sees a host of female stars including Zoe Salmon, the Hollyoaks girls and Danielle Lloyd taking an uncommon step into the music biz for this fantastic cause. Singing alongside such celebs are music professionals including T'Pau's Carol Decker and former Steps star Lisa Scott-Lee.

The song is the first for the charity and Race for Life series, now in its 17th year, and as well as the celebrities and women from across the nation, a number of inspirational women who have been personally affected by cancer have lent their vocals to the track.

The single will be sold exclusively in over 800 Tesco stores across the UK as well as being available for online download from the 26th April 2010.
