Later that night, she delivered a driving rendition of Janice Joplin's Piece of My Heart.
The recent years have been an up-and-down affair for Etheridge. While never matching the success and sales that came with Yes I Am, Etheridge has continued to produce lauded studio work. A greatest hits album was put out in 2005, and two years later a record of new material hit stores with the release of The Awakening. That same year, Etheridge was rewarded with an Oscar for her original song, "I Need to Wake Up", which had been showcased on the soundtrack for Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth. In 2008, Etheridge delivered fans a compilation of holiday songs in A New Thought for Christmas.
In April 2010, however, Etheridge and Michaels announced their split. The end of the relationship came just two months after the release of Fearless Love, Etheridge's 11th studio album.
