Academy Award and multi-GRAMMY® Award-winner Melissa Etheridge returns with her band to Ruth Eckerd Hall for the first time since 2014! Etheridge is a rock legend and one of music’s greatest female icons. Now nearing her 60s, the superstar has conquered the charts, kicked cancer to the curb, won an Oscar, championed LGBT rights, appeared on Broadway (American Idiot), and become a prolific philanthropist (Equality Florida). The fire in her belly still blazes as is evident in her most recent studio release, Medicine Show. This evening will feature Etheridge’s trademark raspy vocals, powerful lyrics and soaring heartland melodies over a range of memorable hits, old and new.
American Singer-Songwriter Melissa Lou Etheridge is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, and activist. Her self-titled debut album Melissa Etheridge was released in 1988 and became an underground success. The album peaked at No. 22 on the Billboard 200, and its lead single, “Bring Me Some Water”, garnered Etheridge her first Grammy Award nomination for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Female. In 1993, Etheridge won her first Grammy award for her single “Ain’t It Heavy” from her third album, Never Enough. Later that year, she released what would become her mainstream breakthrough album, Yes I Am. Its tracks “I’m the Only One” and “Come to My Window” both reached the top 30 in the United States, and the latter earned Etheridge her second Grammy award. Yes I Am peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard 200, and spent 138 weeks on the chart, earning a RIAA certification of 6× Platinum, her largest to date.
