Jewel Kilcher at the Emmys 2010

Singer Jewel Kilcher, professionally known simply as Jewel, hits the red carpet at the 2010 Emmy Awards on Sunday, August 29 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The 36-year-old singer was spotted smiling from ear to ear and wearing a strapless Zuhair Murad gown paired with a coral-and-diamond ring.

Jewel talked about how she was selected to perform, saying, “I sent them a song that I wrote for a friend who had passed away.” The Emmy producer then picked her to sing the song during the ceremony.

Jewel Kilcher has sold more than twenty million albums in her career, with famous hit songs including “Who Will Save Your Soul”, “You Were Meant For Me”, and “Foolish Games”. Jewel has been Grammy-nominated three times over the years.
