Music icon Jewel has released her first album since 2018 and it has been met with high praise. Jewel is one of the few artists that found instant success in the mid-90s and is still relevant today. Take a look at how her staying power has helped her bank account.
Her latest album, Picking Up the Pieces is a sequel to her 1995 debut release Pieces of You, the album that made her famous and literally took her from rags to riches.
Before she became famous for “Foolish Games” and “You Were Meant for Me,” she was homeless and living out of her car. She’s turned her past into a motivator and has since become an advocate for the homeless and also for those who live in public housing.
Now, not only is Jewel an accomplished and well-listened to musician, she’s also a published poet and an actress who has starred in several things, most notably as June Carter Cash in the Lifetime movie, The June Carter Cash story.
As for poetry, she has published seven books, proving an interest and demand for her work.
Since her early success, Jewel has been able to sell over 27 million records and that number is likely to increase thanks to her latest release.
As a result, Jewel has accrued an impressive amount of money.
