British singer-turned-DJ SONIQUE is recording a charity track for a U.K. cancer organisation - just two months after beating the disease herself.
The former S'Express star underwent two operations after doctors diagnosed her with breast cancer in July (09). She endured five months of gruelling chemotherapy before medics told her in December (09) the treatment had been a success.
And now Sonique - real name Sonia Clarke - is teaming up with a host of other British stars to re-record Cyndi Lauper's 1983 smash hit Girls Just Wanna Have Fun to launch Cancer Research UK's annual fundraiser, Race For Life.
She says, “Cancer Research UK has never released a charity song before, and I’m immensely proud and thrilled to be part of their first single to launch this year’s Race for Life series.
"It’s great to see such a wide range of female celebrities and women who have been affected by cancer involved and it highlights how cancer really does touch everyone."
The track is due for release in Britain in April (10).
