Exclusive Interview With Hit Singer Jewel

In June, the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Jewel spoke at the Las Vegas-based Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (www.nphy.org) to share her personal story of homelessness and survival, as well as answer questions from many young men and women who are currently struggling. Jewel is also lending her voice to director Rotimi Rainwater’s documentary “Lost in America” to be released later this year. The film follows the director, also a former homeless youth, and his team as they travel the country to raise awareness of the issue of youth homelessness in America. (http://bit.ly/LIA_Subscribe.) Leading up to the film’s release, the ‘WAKE UP! Campaign’ will be organizing a series of events to shed light on the issues surrounding youth homelessness. Jewel’s appearance in Las Vegas was the first of many events that will happen over the next several months. Luxe News Live covered the event and spoke with Jewel and Mr. Rainwater in an exclusive interview.
