Jenny Phillips Website
Jenny Phillips can still remember the power she felt listening to gospel music as a young girl and the desire she had even then to help others feel the same power. That vision carried her to where she is now—a leader in inspirational music and one of the most requested and performed artists in the LDS music industry. She has released 13 albums, and performed across the United States and internationally at more than 1,000 performances. And stories of change and testimony follow wherever she goes.
Phillips began her professional musical journey in 1999, after graduating from BYU, when she independently released her first album. Eight years later, as one of the top-selling artists with Deseret Book’s music label, Jenny has become known throughout the world for her powerful presentations and music for the youth of the church.
Phillips has long had a vision of sharing LDS music in all parts of the world. She says, “LDS music had such a huge impact on my life as I was growing up. Since a young age, I had a vision of making LDS music available outside of the US. It has been one of the most fulfilling things I’ve been able to work on. I want members of the church everywhere to have access to this kind of music in their native tongue.” Jenny has performed her music in 19 countries, and her music has been translated into 15 different languages. Her music has been performed by LDS youth groups in more than 30 nations.
During the creation of her second and third albums, Phillips formed a choir to tour with her. They began small—only eight members performing twice a month. Now the choir has grown to 150 rotating members that perform with Jenny across the world. The Jenny Phillips choir has recorded on over a dozen CDs including EFY and Hilary Weeks projects. Jenny lives in North Salt Lake with her husband and four children.
