Melissa Lou Etheridge (born May 29, 1961) is an American rock singer-songwriter, guitarist, and activist. Her self-titled debut album Melissa Etheridge was released in 1988 and became an underground hit. The album peaked at #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. The album featured three Top 40 hits, including "I'm the Only One" (No. 8) and "Come to My Window" (No. 25), the latter which scored 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 6x Platinum, her largest to date.

Melissa, I am trying so hard to reach out to you! For some reason, you are not responding. I wrote you a letter, yet your Tour Manager doesn't seem to want you to have it! Life is so short, so don't allow him to block me out! Susan

Wow,obviously Melissa doesn`t read our comments. That`s too bad for I was so looking forward to asking her out on a date! Your loss Melissa. Even your Tour Manager Steven Girmant won`t forward my letter to you. Hey, what can I say. You live in your own world. It`s all good. Stay well, live well and try hard to be happy!
