Not many singers have the distinction of winning both an Oscar and two Grammy awards and have starred in one of Broadway’s most acclaimed rock musicals. Not to mention also being a cancer survivor, mother of four children and a political activist; but that’s exactly what life is like if you’re Melissa Etheridge.

Etheridge does all of this and still has the time to tour the country. She’ll be stopping here Sept. 8 at Humphrey’s by the Bay and while there are still are tickets available, they are close to being sold out.

She is a tireless force to be reckoned with. Etheridge loves talking about being a mother, about politics, about her kids, her music and how much music means to her and her life.
