Monster®, the world leader in high-performance personal audio, is proud to launch “Headphones for Hope,” a fundraiser featuring celebrity-autographed Monster® DNA™ headphones for sale with bidding beginning today at 10AM PST on eBay. Now through July 1, fans can bid on headphones signed by celebrities and musicians including Snoop Lion, Ben Affleck, Sheryl Crow, Swizz Beatz, Will Ferrell, Kerry Washington, Henry Cavill, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Carrie Underwood and dozens more. As part of a global alliance with Viacom, all proceeds from “Headphones for Hope” will benefit non-profit partners of Viacommunity, Viacom’s companywide umbrella for social responsibility, including the VH1 Save The Music Foundation, Born This Way Foundation, Lifebeat, Caliber Foundation, Second Harvest Food Bank and Spike TV’s Hire-A-Vet Foundation. 

Each autographed Monster® DNA™ headphone is one-of-a-kind and were signed during leading Viacom award ceremonies this past year including the MTV Movie Awards, VH1 Divas, LOGO’s NewNowNext Awards, CMT Music Awards, and more. Below is a complete list of participating celebrities and the charities they are supporting with their autographs. Each signed headphone will debut at an opening bid of 99 cents and fans and charity supporters can bid here – www.ebay.com/headphonesforhope.

“This fundraiser is a perfect example of how people can come together to really make a difference, and Monster is grateful that so many great artists, musicians and celebrities have literally ‘signed up’ to help out,” said Noel Lee, CEO of Monster. “This entire campaign has not only been a great way for us to help the causes that we believe in, but to also bring our message of better sound to influential artists and fans, in sharing the many lifestyle benefits of Monster® DNA™ and the elevated music listening experience of our Pure Monster Sound™.”

Monster is redefining what a headphone can look and sound like with Monster® DNA™ headphones, which deliver the company’s outstanding Pure Monster Sound™.  Articulate, tight, and ultimately revealing, it’s as close to live music as being on stage with the musicians. Designed with both the music and fashion consumer in mind, Monster® DNA™ features a distinctive “not-round, not-oval,” but totally new, bold and striking triangular shape.  The color scheme itself is just as innovative, with the inside color asserting itself just as prominently as the outer headband color.

Melissa Etheridge Releases New Album ‘Fearless Love’ On April 27th

Melissa Etheridge Releases New Album ‘Fearless Love’ On April 27th

On April 27, Melissa Etheridge will release her new album Fearless Love on Island Records. Produced by John Shanks (Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morissette, Bon Jovi) Fearless Love expands on the multiple strengths that have made Etheridge one of the most beloved figures in rock and brings her and Shanks together for the second time since Breakdown. Since their initial pairing, Shanks has risen to the top ranks of rock and pop producers with credits including Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morissette and Bon Jovi, earning him a 2005 Producer of the Year Grammy Award.

Melissa Etheridge’s new single, “Fearless Love,” a bold and soaring declaration for living – and loving – to the fullest, has struck a momentous chord as it soars inside the Top 30 this week on the Hot AC chart, and rises to #10 on the Triple A chart. The album is now available for pre-order on iTunes.

Check out Melissa Etheridge’s “Fearless Love” video at this location >

Fearless Love expands on the multiple strengths that have made Etheridge one of the most beloved figures in rock. It follows The Awakening, her revealing album of 2007, with a rousing tone at once tough and tender, as only she can be. It is that force of presence which has earned her, among other accolades, the 2007 Academy Award for Best Original Song (“I Need to Wake Up” from the documentary film An Inconvenient Truth) and two Grammy Awards.

About Melissa Etheridge:
Melissa Etheridge has been a core Island Records artist since the release of her critically-acclaimed eponymous RIAA double-platinum debut album, which led to an invitation to sing on the Grammy Awards broadcast. For several years, Melissa’s popularity built around such memorable songs as “Bring Me Some Water” (from her debut), “No Souvenirs” (from Brave And Crazy) and “Ain’t It Heavy” (from Never Enough), for which she won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal.

Melissa hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am, featuring the massive hits “I’m the Only One” and “Come to My Window,” a searing song of longing that brought her second Best Female Rock Grammy. The album went six times platinum and spent more than two and a half years on the album chart. Her highest charting album, Your Little Secret (#6 on the Billboard Top 200), included the hit single, “I Want to Come Over.” Her astounding success led Etheridge to receive the Songwriter of the Year honor at the ASCAP Pop Awards.
