Phillips began her professional musical journey in 1999, after graduating from BYU, when she independently released her first album. Eleven years later, as one of the top-selling artists with Deseret Book's music label, Jenny has become known throughout the world for her powerful presentations and music for the youth of the church. Phillips has long had a vision of sharing LDS music in all parts of the world. She says, "LDS music had such a huge impact on my life as I was growing up.
Since a young age, I had a vision of making LDS music available outside of the US. It has been one of the most fulfilling things I've been able to work on. I want members of the church everywhere to have access to this kind of music in their native tongue." Jenny has performed her music in 16 countries, and her music has been translated into 15 different languages. Her music has been performed by LDS youth groups in more than 30 nations. During the creation of her second and third albums, Phillips formed a choir to tour with her.
They began small—only eight members performing twice a month, but by the time Phillips released her fourth album, Journey toward Zion, in 2004, the group had grown to 140 rotating members performing more than 200 times each year. The Jenny Phillips choir has recorded on over a dozen CDs including EFY and Hilary Weeks projects. In addition to her five full-length albums, Phillips has released four best-selling albums for LDS youth. Jenny lives in North Salt Lake with her husband and four children.
