Jewel returns with heartfelt ballad ‘No More Tears’

Song serves as official theme from Lost in America documentary

After nearly four years, Jewel returns with the heartfelt ballad “No More Tears,” available now across all digital streaming platforms via Jewel’s Words Matter Media/The Orchard. “No More Tears” was written by Jewel specifically for the seminal documentary Lost In America, which hits select theaters in 2020. The powerful feature is the first film to take a national in-depth look at the issue of youth homelessness in America, highlighting the main issues that surround it. Directed by former homeless youth Rotimi Rainwater, Jewel serves as the film’s executive producer alongside Halle Berry, Rosario Dawson, and more.

“It’s been a tremendous honor to be an Executive Producer and to work on this film, Lost in America. It is a subject that is so dear to my heart. I was homeless for a year when I was 18 — I started living in my car because a boss withheld my paycheck when I refused his sexual advances,” Jewel shares. ” When my car got stolen things got more difficult from there. The issue of homeless youth is important, misunderstood and overlooked. I was so moved as I was working on this film, that I was inspired to write a song for the youth I came to know through the process. It was a transformative experience to see the film come together and to write this song and be able to record it. It’s all of our jobs to make sure that there are no more youth that are lost in America.”

“No More Tears” is only the first hint of a massive year ahead for Jewel, who will be celebrating 25 years of her iconic diamond RIAA-certified debut album, Pieces of You, which remains one of the bestselling debuts of all time. Stay tuned for much more new music to come and be sure to keep an ear out for Jewel’s classic “Winter Wonderland” spinning everywhere this holiday season.
