KT Tunstall Headlines *1st ever* Green Golden Globe Party
from KT Tunstall's Facebook fan page:
Global Cool is delighted to announce that KT Tunstall will be the next artist to feature in their On-Demand webcast series, which aims to help defeat global warming through awareness-raising collaborations with high profile artists.
KT Tunstall will be performing at the first-ever Golden Green Party at the Golden Globes, on January 15th. Global Cool has partnered with E! Entertainment and the Environmental Media Association to present this environmentally aware after-party. The following day Global Cool will make the performance, as well as exclusive interview footage, available for on-demand streaming through Global-Cool.com.
Fans logging on to Global-Cool.com from January 16th can expect to see:
- A full 30 minute stream of KT Tunstall's performance (from 3pm GMT)
- A 6 minute highlights package showing the best action from the event (from 6pm GMT)
- A 20-30 minute 'Features' program, with interviews and more (from 1pm GMT)
KT first became involved with Global Cool's 10-year campaign, which aims to encourage individuals to drastically reduce their personal CO2 emissions, at last year's Fuji Rock Festival in Japan. Over the past year the Scottish singer/songwriter has led the way in green touring by embracing innovative actions such as offsetting the CO2 emissions of her headline US tour and running her tour bus on environmentally-friendly biodiesel fuel.
This year's Golden Globe party is an all-green affair, hosted at 9900 Wilshire Beverly Hills, a recently completed green building apartment block, the Golden Green Party will be a Carbon-Neutral event in addition to featuring organic food. Los Angeles based environmental group, the TreePeople, will also plant a tree for every guest that attends the party.
KT has received quite a bit of coverage in the last year or so, for being genuinely "green." I'm a big fan! For a sample, here's KT performing at Live Earth - 7/7/07:
