Kylie Minogue Unveils Video For Cancer Charity Single
A few weeks ago, we posted about Australian pop star Kylie Minogue and her charity single “Crystallize,” which would benefit French research institute APREC and its research on cancer. Minogue was previously diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 and underwent surgery and chemotherapy in Paris.
The public was asked to bid on a note of the song starting at £1, with the winners of the eBay auction receiving their name in the credits of the music video and a certificate acknowledging their donation. With over 4,000 notes to bid on, the One Note Against Cancer campaign raised over £12,000 according to the site.
The video for the song was revealed days before Minogue’s birthday. The song written by Minogue, Scissor Sisters’ Babydaddy and Dev Hynes received glamorous treatment and bares similarities to her previous work with Scissor Sisters (“I Believe In You,” “White Diamond”). The six minute clip begins with a girl dancing and singing into a hairbrush (we’ve all been there) and is cut with scenes of Minogue singing. When the main clip finishes, the song repeats with a scrolling list of those who donated to the cause.
Minogue previously teased the song and announced the single will be able to purchase “Crystallize” on June 9th via iTunes.
