On September 27, 2011 the Grammy Award-winning singer officially reached global star status after she received the honour of having her own star placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This comes on top of her remarkable 2007 Academy Award for her song “I Need To Wake Up,” written for the Al Gore documentary on global warming, An Inconvenient Truth.
The singer’s honest and confessional song-writing style paired with her bluesy rock-infused vocals has seen her rise to the top of the musical spectrum since the her 1988 debut album Melissa Etheridge, which is certified triple platinum in Australia and double platinum in New Zealand.
Fan favourites such as ‘Bring Me Some Water’, ‘No Souvenirs’ and ‘Ain't It Heavy’, for which she won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal, are amongst many of the songs that make Etheridge one of rock music’s most exciting performers.
