KT TUNSTALL will be the next artist to feature in Global Cool’s On-Demand webcast series, which aims to help defeat global warming through awareness-raising collaborations with high profile artists.

The singer will be performing at the first-ever Golden Green Party at the Golden Globes on January 15, 2007.

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 16 can expect to see:

Tuesday, January, 16: – A full 30 minute stream of KT Tunstall’s performance (from 3pm GMT) – And a 6 minute highlights package showing the best action from the event (from 6pm GMT)

Wednesday, January 17: – A 20-30 minute ‘Features’ programme, with interviews and more (from 1pm GMT)

KT first became involved with Global Cool’s 10-year campaign at last year’s Fuji Rock Festival in Japan. The initiative aims to encourage individuals to drastically reduce their personal CO2 emissions.

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 a sustainable décor and organic food.

Los Angeles-based environmental group, the TreePeople, will also plant a tree for every guest that attends the party.
