Health is wealth! Jewel and Rachel Platten were among the celebrities who attended day two of the 2019 Wellness Your Way Festival in Denver on Saturday, August 17.

Jewel, 45, who cofounded the festival, signed copies of her book, Never Broken: Songs Are Only Half the Story, for attendees. Later on, the singer and Kroger Health CEO Colleen Lindholz stopped by various booths inside the Colorado Convention Center, including Procter & Gamble, American Media Inc. and Hallmark, where fellow guests were able to select, write and send out cards.

Saturday’s events also included the Modern Mom panel (moderated by Jewel, Lindholz, Platten, author Sara Blanchard, Tone It Up cofounder Katrina Scott and Black Moms Blog creator Shanicia Boswell) and a total body workout session led by Scott and her business partner, Karena Dawn.
