Jessica Andrews biography (bio)
Jessica Danielle Andrews is an Academy of Country Music Award winning American country music singer. While still in her teens, she became a successful singer with her #1 hit, "Who I Am".
Jessica Andrews was born in Huntingdon, Tennessee to parents Jessie and Vicki Andrews. Andrews learned her passion for singing in the 4th grade, when she sang Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" in a talent show. From then on she sang at fairs, parades, and other local events. Soon after producer Byron Gallimore was told about Jessica, he went to see her perform in order to find out if she really had what it takes. At the performance, he was very surprised at her amazing voice, and after James Stroud (former head of Dreamworks Nashville) heard her, she was offered a record deal. Jessica signed with DreamWorks and soon began working on her first album, Heart Shaped World.
At the age of 16, Andrews released her debut album, Heart Shaped World, which included her singles "I Will Be There For You" (also featured on the Prince of Egypt soundtrack), "You Go First", "Unbreakable Heart", and "I Do Now". "Unbreakable heart" became the biggest hit from her first album as it reached #24 on US Country. Dreamworks was pleased with the results of her first album and in 2001 she released a second album Who I Am.
Andrews' new album, Who I Am, peaked at #22 on The Billboard 200 and had Andrews biggest hit single on it called "Who I Am". The single reached #1 on US Country and #28 on The Billboard Hot 100. This got Jessica the award of Top New Female Vocalist at the Academy of Country Music in 2001. From "Who I Am" she also released "Helplessly, Hopelessly" and "Karma". Unfortunately, these singles didn't fare quite as well as "Who I Am". After that climax of her career she came out with one more album Now which was successful, but didn't match the level of success as Who I Am. Andrews was working on her fourth album, Ain't That Life, when Dreamworks Records dissolved and she was left without a record label. Andrews is currently engaged to fellow country music star Marcel Chagnon.
