Two-time Grammy Award winner Melissa Etheridge and three-time nominee Joss Stone announced on Tuesday that they are releasing an audio version of their Grammy performance tribute to Janis Joplin exclusively on the iTunes Music Store. The song will be available for a 30-day period beginning on Tuesday, March 15th.
Proceeds generated from the $0.99 Joplin medley, which includes the classic tracks “Cry Baby” and “Piece of My Heart,” will benefit the City of Hope and the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation.
“I’ll never forget those two and a half minutes on stage,” said Etheridge who made her appearance on the 47th Annual Grammy Awards just after completing an aggressive course of chemotherapy for breast cancer. “It was the best get well present a girl could have.”
The mission of the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation is to eradicate breast cancer within 10 years. Their goal is to identify the barriers to research and then to create new solutions.
