Since co-writing and performing Breathe, the Emmy-nominated main title theme to NBC's daytime drama Passions, singer and songwriter Jane French has signed with NBC Records and hopes to release a Passions soundtrack soon. She also is working on a solo album slated for release early next year. The Cincinnati native began singing professionally at age 8, working on toy company jingles—she was the voice of Play-Doh—and in musical theater. She studied piano, ballet, tap and jazz dance, performing in weekend musical reviews by age 12. French wrote songs and performed with bands while at the University of Cincinnati. Her co-writer on the Passions theme song was John Henry, composer for the series. French lives with husband Jimmy, son Tyler, and her Jack Russell Terrier, Boo, in Cincinnati.
