- NEW YORK
Melissa Etheridge, the singer, songwriter and activist whose distinctive, smoky vocals, heartland ballads and love songs have earned her multiple Grammy nominations and wins, as well as an Academy Award, will be performing during the upcoming AMP Awards for Music & Sound.
Etheridge will be introducing several categories during the presentation, set for July 22 at 7 pm ET. Her appearance, courtesy of BMG, is in support of her new album, “One Way Out,” set for release on Sept. 17, 2021. The artist will perform a new song from the album, as well as one of her most memorable hits.

“Melissa is a songwriters’ songwriter, and her role as an inspirational artist and activist fits in perfectly with how music has helped lead advertising through a very challenging year,” said Groove Guild’s founder Al Risi.
A member of the AMP Awards Committee as well as the AMP Board, Risi has been the person behind all of the performances the AMP Awards have presented since the second year of the show. “We’re beyond excited that she’s agreed to perform these songs exclusively for our audience,” said Risi, adding, “we’re so grateful to Melissa, her manager, Deb Klein, and to Charlie Davis at BMG for helping to make this a reality.”
