Etheridge to headline National Biodiesel Conference

By | January 01, 2009
Her soulful, unmistakable voice has made her one of the greatest all-time female rock icons, but musician Melissa Etheridge also uses her voice to raise awareness about the ideas she believes in, including biodiesel. The National Biodiesel Board will welcome Etheridge as she speaks about her commitment to biodiesel and performs her music at the 2009
National Biodiesel Conference & Expo, Feb. 1-4 in San Francisco.

Born in Leavenworth, Kan., Etheridge picked up the guitar at the age of eight. Since then, her bluesy vocal style and riveting stage presence have helped earn her two Grammy Awards. Some of Etheridge's prolific hits include "Bring Me Some Water," "I Want To Come Over," and "Come To My Window." In February 2007, Etheridge celebrated a career milestone with a victory in the Best Original Song category at the Academy Awards for "I Need to Wake Up," which she wrote for the Al Gore documentary, An Inconvenient Truth.

Etheridge is an ardent biodiesel user and supporter, and spreads the biodiesel message during public appearances.

The 2009 conference promises to offer its valuable educational and networking opportunities that attendees have come to expect. This year, one new feature is sustainability sessions supplementing existing educational tracks. For more information and to register, visit
