Jennifer Love Hewitt (born February 21, 1979) is an American actress, producer, television director and former singer-songwriter. Hewitt began her acting career as a child by appearing in television commercials and the Disney Channel series Kids Incorporated. She rose to fame in teenage popular culture in her roles in the Fox series Party of Five as Sarah Reeves Merrin, and films I Know What You Did Last Summer and its sequel as Julie James.
In addition to acting, Hewitt has also served as a producer on some of her film and television projects. In 2010, Hewitt wrote a book on relationships entitled The Day I Shot Cupid. She starred on the hit CBS television program Ghost Whisperer as Melinda Gordon, a young woman who can communicate with ghosts, for which she won a Saturn Award in 2007 and 2008 for Best Actress on Television. She was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award for her television movie The Client List.
In 2002, Hewitt signed to Jive Records and recorded her fourth album with singer, songwriter and producer Meredith Brooks. The first single, "BareNaked", became her biggest radio hit to date when it peaked at No. 24 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart, No. 31 on the Adult Top 40 and No. 25 on the Top 40 Mainstream. It also climbed to No. 6 in Australia, remaining there for two weeks, and No. 33 in the Netherlands. The moderate success of the single propelled her album of the same name to peak at No. 37 on the Billboard 200 and No. 31 in Australia. However, it only remained on the chart for three weeks. The second single, "Can I Go Now", failed to chart in the US, while managing to peak at No. 8 in the Netherlands and No. 12 in Australia.
Since 2003, Hewitt has not actively done anything in the music industry, but the compilation album Cool with You: The Platinum Collection was released in Asia in 2006. Another compilation, Hey Everybody, was released in Brazil in 2007.
In 2009, reports surfaced that Hewitt was planning on making a country album and was in the process of writing material for it. Jamie Kennedy, Hewitt's boyfriend at the time, said: "I really want to make her a new demo for her music, because I think she should do singing again. She's so good." However, nothing has of yet come of the reports, and Hewitt has remained absent from the music scene.
