Jewel

Singer-songwriter Jewel has penned numerous lyrics empowering women after heartbreak and loss, and now she hopes to do the same for breast cancer survivors.

Jewel’s latest song, “Flower,” was written to raise awareness about the importance of breast reconstruction options for breast cancer survivors. The singer is heading to New Orleans next month to perform “Flower” and other hits at a benefit concert for the cause.

The Juilliard School plans a star-filled private musical tribute to Marvin Hamlisch that will include Barbra Streisand, Aretha Franklin and Liza Minnelli.

The composer, who became the youngest person accepted by Juilliard at age 7, died Aug. 6 in Los Angeles. The memorial will be held Tuesday night at the school’s Peter Jay Sharp Theater. Also slated to perform include Itzhak Perlman, and Michael Feinstein.
