Jewel

Jewel Kilcher (born May 23, 1974), professionally known as Jewel, is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, producer, actress, and author/poet. She has received four Grammy Award nominations and, as of 2008, has sold over 27 million albums worldwide.

Jewel's debut album, Pieces of You, released on February 28, 1995, became one of the best-selling debut albums of all time, going 15 times platinum. One single from the album, "Who Will Save Your Soul", peaked at number eleven on the Billboard Hot 100; two others, "You Were Meant for Me" and "Foolish Games", reached number seven and two respectively on the Hot 100, and were listed on Billboard '​s 1997 year-end singles chart, as well as Billboard '​s 1998 year-end singles chart. She has crossed several genres throughout her career. Perfectly Clear, her first country album, was released on The Valory Music Co. in 2008. It debuted atop Billboard '​s Top Country Albums chart and featured three singles, "Stronger Woman", "I Do", and "Til It Feels Like Cheating". Jewel released her first independent album Lullaby in May 2009.

Jewel is the co-host, as well as a judge, with Kara DioGuardi on the songwriting competition reality television series Platinum Hit, which premiered May 29, 2011 on the cable network Bravo. Jewel has the vocal range of a lyric soprano. On July 2, 2013, NBC announced that Jewel would be a judge on the fourth season of the a cappella competition The Sing-Off.

Her full name is Jewel Kilcher. She was born in Payson, Utah and raised in Homer, Alaska.
Jewel started her career playing in a coffee house in San Diego, California called "Inner Change."
Her fan club is called the EDA's (Every Day Angels). The name was taken from a line in her song, "I'm Sensitive."
She stared in Ang Lee's 1999 film "Ride With The Devil".
As a child, she was part of a family yodeling act.
Jewel attended the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan during high school before living in her VW van (according to interviews) for possibly less than a year before landing a record deal in California. At workshops for singers and songwriters, Jewel is often cited as an example of someone with a great story that the media is likely to pick up on. Her image as an Alaskan farm girl who slept in her car earned her a great deal of publicity and set her apart from other singer/songwriters.
She stared as Dorothy in TNT's live stage version of The Wizard of Oz in 1995. Up to that point she was mainly known for her appearances on college radio.
