"Iíll never forget those two-and-a-half minutes on stage," says Etheridge, who has just completed a course of aggressive chemotherapy to battle breast cancer. "It was the best get well present a girl could have." Stone added, "Singing with Melissa was a dream come true. She's an amazing singer, songwriter and without a doubt an amazing person, definitely a woman to look up to."
