Wochit Headline News - Saturday, 20 May 2017
Jewel grew up so poor in Alaska that she had nowhere to live and resorted to shoplifting. All this before becoming a Grammy-nominated artist. Jewel said this week at the SALT Conference in Las Vegas, "I was a homeless kid who was stealing. I didn't have $40 to buy a dress, much less to get any housing." Jewel spoke about the Inspiring Children Foundation, which helps at-risk youth.
