Commentary by Amy Pauszek
Four years ago Grammy award-winning artist Melissa Etheridge rocked the stage and halls of the Palladium. Where’s Amy was mesmerized by the return of Etheridge on June 21, when she belted out songs with her sweet raspy voice and contagious energy played to a packed house. Several guests and friends of The Center of the Performing Arts had the opportunity to attend a special VIP ‘meet and greet’ before the concert and said it was the highlight of their evening. Etheridge released her latest album “This Is M.E.” in 2014 and fans loved listening to her sing the featured singles “Take My Number,” “A Little Bit of Me,” and “Monster.”
Etheridge also brought down the house with her classic hits “I’m the Only One” and “Come to My Window.” Every time I attend a concert at the Palladium I leave feeling pumped and my heart is full. Etheridge touched the hearts of her fans when she sang and dedicated her new song “Pulse” to the victims of the Orlando tragedy. It was beautifully written and 100 percent of all download proceeds go to help those affected by the tragedy in Orlando. Hands down, Etheridge gave a superb concert and I left with a smile on my face thinking about how fortunate we are to have The Center for the Performing Arts working hard to bring the best worldwide entertainment to Carmel.
