Rolling Stone reviews "Uprising of Love"

Melissa Etheridge Seeks to Unite on 'Uprising of Love' - Song Premier
By: John Gentile

Melissa Etheridge was so incensed by the Russian government's recent treatment of the LGBT community, she wrote a single specifically about the issue and formed an entire coalition dedicated to supporting Russian LGBT activists. However, instead of an attack, the track "Uprising of Love" (which shares its name with the coalition), is a call for unity.

The singer is pissed off about Russia’s dangerous anti-gay laws. She says America shouldn’t be boycotting the Sochi Olympics—now is the time for gay athletes to be heard.

Melissa Etheridge has a voice.

It’s a voice that, over her career as a singer, songwriter, and activist, has been used to rouse. It’s roused anyone who’s seen and heard the electricity with which she uses it on stage, performing any one of her indelible songs. And it’s roused to action those who can’t ignore its plea when it’s making a call for social change.
