From hard beginnings came a survivor
Having suffered one of the most gruelling childhood and growing up experiences possible for a struggling singer, Jewel has proven herself to be one tough lady; growing up in provincial Alaska, she sang at down and out lumberjack bars with her jobbing father; when he became physically abusive, she left for San Diego to be with her mother, where they both struggled financially to survive, even winding up sleeping in their cars' when Jewel's was stolen, she lived on the streets for a full year, suffering ill health along the way. Her lucky break came when she was discovered singing at a San Diego coffee bar in 1993 by a musician from a local San Diego band, Rust.
