If you liked Keith Urban performing his new song “Female,” wait until you hear a new all-female cover of the song.

A group of women from a Nashville-based music showcase that goes by the name of Song Suffragettes has produced a cover video of the song and made it available on YouTube. Kalie Shorr, Lacy Cavalier, Lena Stone and others appear in the video with the intent of raising awareness for LiveYourDream.org, an organization focusing on female empowerment and helping to eradicate violence against women.

“When I heard [‘Female’] I immediately connected to it,” Shorr tells Rolling Stone Country. “I’ve always loved Keith Urban, but his decision to record this song and use his platform to stand in solidarity with women made me admire him even more. I chatted with the Song Suffragettes girls and we thought it would be really cool and special to put our voices on it. The production team behind Song Suffragettes had an amazing idea to use to use it to back a female-focused charity, and our cover of ‘Female’ was born.”

The Song Suffragettes showcase takes place weekly at Nashville’s Listening Room Cafe. Learn more here.
