    Had a U.S. Hot 100 Hit in 1995 with 'Woman to Woman' (#72). Briefly received a modicum of mainstream appeal. Singer Jewel ('Who Will Save Your Soul', 'You Were Meant For Me', etc.) has told a story of the hardships she experienced starting out as a singer, including once being booked in a venue where the audience thought Jewell would be performing.

    Crew Of USS Enterprise

    April Nocifora, a producer/supervising producer on Star Trek: Discovery and a supervising producer on season one of Star Trek: Picard, died in December 2021. Her death was acknowledged at the end of the series debut of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds on May 5th. Her death was apparently also acknowledged following the most recent season finale of Star Trek: Discovery, though she was only referred to there by her given name. Her death seems to not have been made public before then, as she was not included in the 'Star Trek in memoriam' put out by the Daily Star Trek News publication and included in a link to an earlier entry in this thread. https://technotrenz.com/entertainment/strange-new-worlds-explains-the-april-nocifora-dedication-1875780.html
