Jewel        

Musician; Philanthropist; Author of "Never Broken: Songs Are Only Half the Story"

Jewel is an acclaimed American singer, songwriter, actress, poet, painter, philanthropist and daughter to an Alaskan cowboy singer-songwriter.

Jewel is a judge on NBC's "The Sing-Off," which premiered in Fall 2013.

In February of 2013, Jewel released her first ever career-spanning collection that includes new recordings of two classic hits with guest vocalists: "Foolish Games" with Kelly Clarkson and "You Were Meant For Me" with the Pistol Annies. "The Greatest Hits" album also includes one brand new single titled "Two Hearts Breaking." It's a tender ballad about a once-great love, powered by thumping drums, rough-edged guitars.

Later in 2013, Jewel starred as June Carter Cash in the much anticipated Lifetime film, "Ring of Fire."

2011 brought new joy to the singer/songwriter as she and her husband Ty Murray welcomed baby Kase Townes to the world. Soon after the singer released "The Merry Goes 'Round," her second children's album with Fisher-Price and Somerset Entertainment. The album was followed up in 2012 with a a picture book and CD based on a song from "The Merry Goes 'Round." The book titled, "That's What I'd Do" is perfect for bedtime sharing again and again.

In the summer of 2011, Jewel was seen as host and judge on the Bravo series, "Platinum Hit." The show followed 12 up-and-coming musicians as they battle through a series of innovative songwriting challenges testing their creativity, patience and drive and also featured fellow songwriter Kara DioGuardia.

Jewel also released a debut country album "Perfectly Clear" in June 2008, which garnered her a spot at No. 1 on the Billboard country album charts. "Perfectly Clear" was the debut release on the Nashville-based independent label The Valory Music Co.

Also near and dear to Jewel’s heart is her charitable initiative, Project Cleanwater, which she continues to support, unwaveringly. Jewel founded Project Clean Water in 1997. Having experienced homelessness as a teenager, Jewel became ill and couldn't afford to buy the bottled water she needed for her sick kidneys. She then realized it was difficult to obtain clean water in the United States, and discovered it was a huge problem globally. She has been relentless in her efforts to bring safe water to those in need and create awareness of clean water shortages around the world.

Project Clean Water has recently partnered with Virgin Unite and the Voss Foundation to create the "Give A Drop" campaign. Money raised through text donations will benefit the partnership, which is currently working in Pel in the Dogon region of Mali, where 40 water retention structures were recently completed.

Jewel currently lives on a working ranch in Stephenville, Texas with her husband, World Champion bull-riding superstar, Ty Murray and their son Kase Townes Murray.
