There’s certainly no shortage of worthwhile breast cancer charities to support this October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but one of the most joyous and silly projects we’ve come across features a whole host of renowned musicians singing the song “Boob Spelled Backward is Boob.”
The Boob Project is a collaborative charity song performed by Florence + the Machine, Noel Gallagher, members of the Grateful Dead and Spandau Ballet, Hozier, Vance Joy, Michael Franti, Bleachers, Elle King, Graham Nash and more. The song’s lyrics were written by Archer Nelson, the 8-year-old son of Mike “No Name” Nelson, a famed morning DJ at San Francisco radio station KFOG. Archer wrote the song for his mother who is battling breast cancer.
Nelson and fellow DJ Irish Greg tapped several famous musical guests who stopped by the studio to bring the song to life and record parts of the track throughout the year. We’re sure you’ll agree that the results are adorable and inspiring.
Even artists who didn’t have the opportunity to record on the track have lent their support to The Boob Project, including Mumford and Sons, George Ezra, Leon Bridges and James Bay.
The song is meant to encourage donations to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Check out the video below and go here to support this worthwhile cause.
