One final Shabbat Music Break for National Blog Posting Month. Melissa Etheridge is my ultimate example of a woman who flat out rocks. Her lyrics are true and pure and there is a clarity in her voice that I find spiritually uplifting. She lives life on her own terms and that honesty is reflected back in her music. And-how could you possibly not love a woman who rocks a twelve-string? "California" is off of her 2007 album The Awakening. Shabbat Shalom to all who observe.
