Jewel's Handmade Holiday Tour
Tuesday & Wednesday, December 12 & 13 at 8 p.m.
Jewel is a singer-songwriter, actress, author, mother and wellness advocate who is passionate about health, equality, the relentless pursuit of wisdom and sharing it with others.
Throughout her career, she has earned four Grammy Award nominations and sold over 30 million albums worldwide. Heralded by the New York Times as “one of the best singer songwriters since Joni Mitchell,” Jewel credits great mentors Bob Dylan and Neil Young who took the time to groom and encourage her as a young artist. She was recently chosen to finish Johnny Cash's half-written songs for a forthcoming posthumous CD created by Cash’s son, John Carter Cash.
Jewel's unique story began on an Alaskan homestead—with no electricity—where her family survived off the land. Her New York Times best-selling memoir Never Broken chronicles how she used hard work, grit and grace to survive and thrive under extreme circumstances.
One of Jewel's earlier hits, "Hands," spoke of her personal discovery of "mindfulness"… a good 20 years before the term would become popular in social vernacular. Her lyrics calmed a generation of listeners with the phrase, "If I could tell the world just one thing, it would be that we're all ok.”
Jewel ventured into the acting world with her first role coming in Ang Lee's civil war drama Ride With The Devil. She then starred in the lead role of June Carter Cash in the Lifetime original movie Ring of Fire. In early 2017, Jewel assumed the lead role of Shannon Hughes in The Fixer Upper Series movies (based on the best-selling series of books of the same name) for Hallmark Movies and Mysteries.
Jewel recently founded a new online platform JewelNeverBroken.com where she shares the mindfulness tools she developed to convert her pain into resilience. For this foray, she teamed up with Dr. Judson Brewer of Yale University and University of Massachusetts and other leading medical doctors to offer this information to the public in a free interactive website. She is also building a “WHOLE HUMAN” curriculum for public schools, corporations and consumers, designed to help people gain tone and strength in all areas of their lives.
