[GTR] was proud to be a sponsor of the Sixth Annual She Rocks Awards, held on Friday January 26, 2018 at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA. Hosted by the Women’s International Music Network aka the WiMN, this event celebrates the accomplishments of outstanding women in the music industry.
This year’s gala featured a star-studded array of honorees including Grammy and Academy Award winner Melissa Etheridge, Kate Pierson & Cindy Wilson of The B-52s, Exene Cervenka of X, members of the pioneering all-female rock band Fanny, and other prominent women from all corners of the music industry.
The evening’s performances included Command Sisters’ upbeat B-52s medley, Alaska Reid’s sultry take on X’s “Breathless”, and the debut of “Just a Girl” which was penned and performed by WiMN founder Laura B. Whitmore and Jenna Paone. Other highlights included shredder Nili Brosh (don’t miss her feature story in this issue), Laura Clapp’s stellar performance of Etheridge’s hit “Come to My Window”, American Idol finalist Olivia Rox’s smoking rendition of Pat Benatar’s “Invincible”, and members of the pioneering rock band Fanny shared their new project, Fanny Walked the Earth. (Publisher’s Note: I saw Fanny open for Jethro Tull at the Los Angeles Forum in the 70’s, and they rocked!)
The evening’s finale featured members of Fanny, The B-52s, Melissa Etheridge, Olivia Rox, Jenna Paone, Laura Clapp and Sabrina Lentini for an inspired performance of “Respect.” For more information about visit: SheRocksAwards.com
