Jewel is a singer-songwriter, actress, author, mother and advocate. She went from a girl who grew up in Alaska with no running water, to a homeless teenager in San Diego, to an award winning, Multi-Platinum Recording Artist who released one of the best-selling debuts of all times. Through her career, which has spanned over 20 years, she has earned multiple Grammy Award nominations, an American Music Award and an MTV Video Music Award among others and to date has sold well in excess of 30 million albums worldwide.
Recently founding her own label imprint "Words Matter Media," Jewel has inked a distribution and marketing deal with Sony/RED MUSIC, and is busy writing songs for her next studio album set to begin recording this summer for release in 2019 coinciding with her Silver Anniversary - a celebration of 25 years as a hit-making recording artist that will be followed with a national tour.
In 2018, Cirque De Soleil honored Jewel's incredible life story with the creation of a show dedicated to her unique life. Millions in proceeds from the show, The Sixth Annual One Night For One Drop, went to the global water charity One Drop and the event was filmed for an upcoming prime time global TV special.
