Jewel Kilcher

Jewel is an acclaimed American singer, songwriter, actress, poet, painter, philanthropist and daughter to an Alaskan cowboy singer-songwriter. From the remote ranch of her Alaskan youth to the triumph of international stardom, the four-time Grammy nominee, hailed by the New York Times as a “songwriter bursting with talents” has enjoyed career longevity rare among her generation of artists.
Jewel is an artist across multiple media, with two published poetry collections, including New York Times bestseller A Night Without Armor. Her new book, Never Broken, which was released September 2015, is an inspirational memoir that explores her unconventional upbringing and extraordinary life. She’s also become a staple on television, hosting the reality show Nashville Star and judging The Sing-Off. She earned critical praise for her acting debut in Ang Lee’s independent Civil War drama Ride With the Devil alongside stars Tobey Maguire and Skeet Ulrich.

Also near and dear to Jewel’s heart is her charitable initiative, Project Clean Water, 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 kidney condition. 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. To date, Project Clean Water has helped more than 30 communities overcome their individual drinking water problems in 13 different countries, on five different continents.
