Mormon Singer Jenny Jordan Frogley

Jenny Jordan Frogley began singing as a three-year-old touring with her family, the "Jordan Family Singers." She also began playing the piano as a young child, and was willing to spend hours daily practicing music and singing. She is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

In eighth grade, Jenny joined the regional youth symphony playing the viola. During her high school years she rotated between performing with the choir, theater, and orchestra. At age 17 she made her first recording, and she made the decision to leave home and pursue a professional career in music. While studying music, dance, and theater in college, she also performed song and dance in theaters across the country. She also performed at Opryland, U.S.A. She entered the world of song-writing and production while working for a mid-west communications company, writing award-winning ads and jingles for radio and television.

Jenny landed a dream role in the demanding part of narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Tuacahn Amphitheater and Center for the Arts in St. George, Utah. At the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics torch-lighting ceremony, she performed in the place of Aretha Franklin. In 2005 she stood in for Gladys Knight to sing for a crowd of 20,000 people. Jenny has also performed as a soloist with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. After recording live with the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, she toured throughout Europe. In Europe, she performed in cathedrals, then went on to perform at the Radio City Music Hall in New York.

Jenny has recorded vocals on over 100 albums. She's filmed commercials and done voice-overs for movies. Her first solo album was for a feature film. She recorded a self-titled debut album of original music in 2005. Her second solo album is called Beautiful Life, released in 2008 and featuring inspirational pop.
