She Rocks Awards Recognize Music Industry Leaders

Among the music industry leaders honored at this year’s She Rocks Awards held in January were three iconic union members: Melissa Etheridge of Local 47 (Los Angeles, CA) and Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson of Local 802 (New York City). A Grammy and Academy award-winning musician, Etheridge has been tearing up the charts since 1988 when the lead single, “Bring Me Some Water,” from her very first album, was nominated for a Grammy. Pierson and Wilson, original members of The B-52s, known for hits like “Roam” and “Love Shack,” are celebrating that band’s 40th Anniversary.

Held during the January NAMM Show for the sixth consecutive year, the She Rocks Awards paid tribute to women who display leadership and stand out in the music industry. Previous recipients included Local 47 members Colbie Caillat, Sheila E., and The Bangles.
