Sorry if this has already been covered, but are there any further updates on how Jill is doing? Has she fully recovered yet?

Hopefully she has been resting up and that there are no ongoing health issues.

She's made herself clear, she hates Prince fans, so why ask us for money? I guess the message is, don't bite the hand that feeds you.

From the looks of her social media she might be having somewhat a change of Heart, like a softening of sorts. I think this would be good for her.
My best to you Jill as you maneuver this strange journey.

I find it hard to believe she can't afford to pay 7000 dollars. Doctors and hospitals can put you on a payment plan. I am paying 100 dollars a month for 2500 dollars worth of medical bills. I can't imagine she makes less than I do a year.

Weʼre raising £7,000 to help Jill Jones, expenses relating from a medical emergency. although on the road to recovery she has been left with hefty bills.


What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Jill Jones is a multi-talented recording artist, providing background vocals for Prince in the 80s and also known for her hugely successful self titled album. Very much a star in her own right, she is now recovering from a medical emergency which has unfortunately left her with huge medical bills. You can help by donating here or purchasing one of her limited edition t-shirts.

Jones met Prince in 1980 at age 18, when Teena Marie was the opening act during his Dirty Mind tour.[1] Prince loved her voice, encouraged her to sing, and stayed in touch with Jones.[2] She became a backup vocalist for Prince when he invited her to the Sunset Sound recording studios in 1982, to sing backing vocals for several tracks on the album 1999.[2] She was credited under just her initials J.J. She also was featured in music videos for the songs "1999" and "Little Red Corvette", as well as extended rarely aired music video for "Automatic", and then joined the tour for 1999 to sing backing vocals with the Prince side-project Vanity 6.[2] After the tour, she moved to Minneapolis and became Prince's on-and-off again girlfriend.[3] She had a bit part as a waitress in the film Purple Rain (1984),[2] and had an appearance in the sequel Graffiti Bridge (1990), where she takes off an undergarment to end a conflicting scene with Prince.

Her debut album was the self-titled Jill Jones (1987), released on Prince's Paisley Park Records. Prince was credited as a co-writer with Jones, but wrote all of the songs himself.[2] Upon its release, the album received positive reviews from critics, but was not a commercial success. As of 2007, the album has been out of print for many years.

Jill recorded numerous demo tracks in London in the late 1980s, including the tracks "Deep Kiss", "Unattainable Love", "Long Time", "Red", "White Dogs" & "Tango", among others. In 1989, she contributed a song ("The Ground You Walk On") to the soundtrack for the film Earth Girls Are Easy.

Several demos were recorded for a second album on Paisley Park, and a video was filmed for the track "Boom Boom", but an album never surfaced. In 1993, she released the dance single "Bald" on Flying Records.

Jones also did backing vocals for Apollonia 6 and recorded the Prince-written single "G-Spot". She also sang lead vocals on Japanese artist Ryuichi Sakamoto's single "You Do Me" from his 1990 album Beauty, and contributed a version of Blondie's "Call Me" to a Giorgio Moroder tribute album. In addition, Jones wrote and co-produced the song "The Great Pretender" for Lisa Lisa. She was also lead vocalist for the band Baby Mother, who recorded an album in 1995 for London Records, which remains unreleased. In 1996, she toured performing co-lead vocals as part of Chic with Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards before his death, and can be heard on the 1999 Chic release "Live at the Budokan".

The Prince song "She's Always in My Hair", a B-side to the single "Raspberry Beret" (1985), was written about Jones.[3]

Though Prince aided in the production of her first album, there was no input from Prince on the second one, which was more pop-rock oriented. From 2001 to the present, Jones has been performing acoustic rock as well as producing edgy and modern dance tracks.

She is also featured in the unreleased Vanity 6 song "Vibrator". In this song, she does a skit in a department store where Vanity goes to get batteries for her vibrator. Prince is also in the skit.

Jill provided vocals on a cover version of Carly Simon's "Why" on Ronny Jordan's album A Brighter Day in 2000 as well as contributing a cover version of Blondie's "Call Me" to a Giorgio Moroder tribute album. This was subsequently issued as a single with various remixes, including ones by Todd Terry and Mantronix.

With the help of former Paisley Park photographer and close friend David Honl, Jones released a second album entitled Two in 2001, with instrumentalist Chris Bruce.

Jones performed lead vocals on 2004's album, The Grand Royals featuring Jill Jones – Wasted.

A collaboration with Dance outfit Funky Junction resulted in the single "Someone to Jump Up", which has appeared on various Hed Kandi compilation releases.

In 2008, Jill Jones joined a performance in New York by Jeremy Gloff, coming up on stage to sing with Jeremy's cover of her song "So Much in Love"[4] On April 28, 2009, Jones released "Living for the Weekend" on the "Peace Bisquit" label. Although Wasted and Two are out of print, both albums can be found on the iTunes Store, along with "Living for the Weekend".

2014 saw the release of the single "This Is How It Feels" with Italian techno act Get Far.

In August 2015, Jill made the track "Forbidden Love" available via Soundcloud. This track is from her dance album, released in February 2016 via Peace Bisquit.

The entire Prince community is one of the strongest, Your help is very much appreciated in getting Jill through this trying time.

Jill has consented to a full interview so feel free to to send in your questions, which we will publish along with your donations. In a time when a prescription costs $350 we appreciate any help towards these costs to help her family

thank you

I'm sorry, but I don't support these "Go Fund Me" campaigns. What did people do before this?? No one has ever paid my medical bills/expenses. rolleyes

.

And, I have never asked anyone for hand-outs. I mean, did she have an expensive procedure done and/or surgery? I'm sure she has close family and friends to help and support her.

I agree. I think Jill is married to a businessman and has her own businesses and travels quite a bit between Europe and LA so she seems to live a decent lifestyle. Maybe it’s just a friend trying to help out

I frequently fly long distances as in sometimes 12,5 hrs on a damn plane and if I wasn't sick when I got on the plane I sure was a day after I got out. Speedy recovery and take it easy as people have said. It's those lingering secondary symptoms that always get people in trouble because they hurry back to normal things. Speedy recovery for Jill!



I know and I'm dreading the trip, thank God it's only 2 hours. True what you say about the secondary symptoms. Thanks for the well wishes.


with all due respect...Jill please people do not fly with the flu, with a doctors note reschedlue your flight also flu is a tuff one however dont expose others by flying...lastly it passes in a week or two best medical recommentation is to stay in get plenty of rest,,,, the problem with this funding site is you are able to do with as you please...its not like a cancer paitent who directs the donations to medical expenses. I recently had the flu it took two weeks to recover,ugh my advice is to stay put we all appreciate those who follow doctors medical orders which never includes flying and e xposing youself to others...indeed we fams are loves that support with loveandkindess... speedy recovery Jill, unattended Phenomena (SP) could set in which can be life threating, get rest, limit your exposure to others and heal.

on the topic of bashing the org dose anyone have the proff, id like to see that. Also a Q and a

is generous as long as it includes all fams...not just the ones that donated..sorta implied that.

BLESSINGS JILL

I guess her new book will be coming soon with all the details of sex in the back seat with Prince. Laura will be lapping it up, waiting with bated breath razz . I certainly don't wish Jill any harm, but if anyone is thinking about sending her money, give it to someone that really needs it. Like those that are starving or can't feed their children or buy medication for their kids.

She canceled the crowdfunding effort (which someone else set up, with her consent after the fact) because she preferred retaining her dignity to suffering the likes of any of you.

Did she give people their money back?

It's not gone, and you can still donate. And if she didn't consent until after the fact, what happened to the money that was there?
