Rockin' in the New Year with Melissa @ Times Square NYC!

Melissa braved the freezing temps in NYC last night to help ring in the New Year with hundreds of thousands of revelers. Earlier in the evening, she played for a private party at the Hard Rock Cafe. Around 9:30pm ET, she hit the outdoor stage in Times Square and played "I'm The Only One" & "Bring Me Some Water." She returned to the stage right before midnight to play her new song "Uprising Of Love" and a beautiful version of John Lennon's "Imagine."

Melissa Etheridge Unleashes Remix of New Song "Uprising Of Love"

Grammy Award winner Melissa Etheridge has written and recorded a new anthem entitled “Uprising of Love”, which has become the inspiration for a new coalition by the same name, Uprising of Love, a movement in support of the safety and dignity of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Russians. In advance of the songs official release in January 2014, Etheridge shares today a special remix of Uprising of Love as a sneak preview of her new track and asks you to join her in this international uprising of love by spreading the message of love through lyric.

“We have worked so hard to create change and equality for the LGBT community in the US and it’s shocking to see such backwards movement in Russia. This song is a direct call to action for people to get involved, become vocal, and connect directly with this serious issue. There is no time to waste and that’s why I chose to let this remix debut ahead of the January 2014 release of the original version,” explains Melissa Etheridge, co-founder of the Uprising of Love coalition.“I felt that we needed to go into the new year creating an international uprising of love to let theLGBT people of Russia know that they are not alone, and that the rest of the world is here to help.”
