Jewel has a concert tomorrow night at the Fillmore in Miami Beach.
“It’s just me and my guitar. I don’t do set lists. Every show is different. I’ll do 17 shows in 17 days. I really have a strong voice, I’ve sung all my life and know my voice inside and out. I think what a lot of people experience is psychosomatic.
I’ll just walk out there and read and feel the mood of the crowd. It’ll be fun, like being in my living room.” Source
This is the hottest I’ve seen Jewel look in a while! Ow!
Also, it sucks how she couldn’t appear on Dancing With The Stars this season!!
On February 8, 2009, it was announced that she would appear on the eighth season of Dancing With the Stars, which she did primarily as a bet against husband Ty Murray; However, five days before the season premire, she suffered fractures in the tibia of both legs, and was forced to withdraw. Her replacement is ex-Hugh Hefner girlfriend Holly Madison. [Source]
Jewel Is Perfectly Clear About Her Home in Country Music
“I was never the kid who looked in the mirror … dancing around the house thinking about being famous,” she said. “I didn’t even have a mirror growing up.”
Jewel Kilcher isn’t ashamed of her humble beginnings. Instead, the singer-songwriter embraces these experiences and uses them to fuel her insightful and soulful lyrics. A successful artist in her own right as well as a multiple Grammy nominee, Jewel would be the first to say she’s found herself taking the road less traveled, literally, to stardom.
Growing up in Alaska, Jewel began singing duets with her father at the age of 8. The two played a variety of gigs ranging from local honky-tonks to bank openings and children’s birthday parties. “It’s just how we made a living,” she said during a recent visit to CMT’s offices in Nashville. “That was our job.” [CMT]
