Q What's Jewel been up to?
-Emilio Garza, Stanton, Texas

Born Jewel Kilcher in Paysun, Utah, and raised on a ranch near Anchorage, Alaska, the 33-year-old singer has been busy at work on a new CD of country songs. She also has been active to make people aware of homeless teens in America, as she once was one herself. "There are over a million kids on the street. It is a huge problem," she says. "I'd like to encourage people to make it an issue." You can learn more about Jewel's involvement at the website www.homelessyouthamongus.org.
