“Women of the World” is an album of celebration and empowerment of women. “These are songs for women and for all men who love women”, she says with a laugh. Being true to its title track name, this CD includes Jeanette’s original songs along with songs from 5 Canadian women songwriters; Amazing Grace is sung by her 85 year old neighbour and “I Can Touch The Sky” is sung by her young daughter. There is also a French song which is a salute to Canadian heroines of history.
2 songs that are capturing the most attention are the title track, “Women of the World” as well as “Angel In Disguise”. The title track has been translated into French, Italian and Spanish and soon it will be performed in Helsinki, Finland for the Business & Professional Women International World Congress in June 2011. “Angel In Disguise” was written to give a voice to women around the world suffering the ravages of AIDS and has just been included on an African Intranet network.
Jeanette received the prestigious “Leading Women, Building Communities” Award in 2009 for Ontario (one of 104 province-wide) and was also voted as Reader’s Choice Local Entertainer of the Year as well as Women in Business (Prince Edward County, ON). She was also voted twice as “Woman of the Week” for BPW International.
