WSM and BMG Celebrate Women & Songs

03/31/04

All-Star Compilation Featuring Chart-busting Hits From Christina, Faith, Alanis, Jewel, Dido, Cher and More, Available April 27

Warner Strategic Marketing and BMG Strategic Marketing Group have joined forces to produce the ultimate collection of contemporary female pop music icons. Due in stores April 27, Women & Songs is a dazzling array of vocal talent and star power from artists who together have sold more than 150 million albums.

The 19 tracks on Women & Songs include a plethora of chart-busters, such as Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful" (which recently won her the Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance), Alicia Keys' "A Woman's Worth" (from her blockbuster 2001 debut, Songs In A Minor), Cher's "Believe" (the 2000 Grammy winner for Best Pop Dance Recording), Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me" (off of her 1991 seven-times-platinum-album Luck Of The Draw), American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson's smash hit "Low," and many more.

Women & Songs sizzles with hot numbers from artists such as Faith Hill ("Cry"), Nelly Furtado ("I'm Like A Bird"), Dido ("Thank You"), Michelle Branch ("Are You Happy Now?"), Sarah McLachlan ("Adia"), Heather Headley ("I Wish I Wasn't"), and Jewel ("Intuition"). Also included are two artists following in the footsteps of these most accomplished females. Born in Marseille, France, and named French National Vocalist at age 12, Cherie's ("I'm Ready") self-titled debut will be released by Lava in April. Rising star Rachael Yamagata's first CD, EP, was released last October. She has already played Madison Square Garden, opening for David Gray, and is in the process of recording her full-length debut.

This is more than just one of the best mix collections ever assembled-it's a time capsule of modern American pop.

Women & Songs will be available April 27 at all retail outlets and at www.wsm-us.com [ http://www.wsm-us.com/ ] for a suggested retail price of $18.98.
