Hits from the album included Come to My Window and I’m the Only One, which reached No. 1 in Billboard’s Adult Contemporary Chart. Besides her music, Etheridge is a vocal activist for LGBT rights and environmental issues, and won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for her track I Need to Wake Up on the climate change documentary An Inconvenient Truth.
