Melissa Etheridge Takes On Acting

Published: 2004-10-01
With a group that already includes Hilary Duff, Raven Symone, and Kelly Osbourne, singer/songwriter Melissa Etheridge is adding herself to the mix of singer-actresses. Unlike the singer-actresses that have come before her, Etheridge has had a very long and successful music career.

The sitcom Etheridge is set to star in features her as a gay woman who lives with her best friend, who happens to be a straight man. In addition to being roomies, the pair is raising their friend's daughter. Etheridge is also acting as producer of the show as well as taking lead actress duties. The as-yet-untitled show will be hosted by American television network ABC.

Etheridge's last music project was called 'Lucky', which was released in February of this year. The artist recently released a live version of the well-received album, which also includes a DVD. The video component of 'Lucky Live', put in stores this past Tuesday (September 28th), features live footage taken from an April 2004 performance in New York, and an interview with Etheridge.

The very first time the world heard Melissa Etheridge was with her 1988 self-titled debut. Since then the singer/songwriter has gone on to release eight full-length studio albums. With the 1993 record 'Yes I Am', Etheridge found her first breakthrough commercial success, with many more to follow.
