The daughter of legendary jazz musician and record producer Quincy Jones and his first wife Jeri Caldwell, Jolie Jones started out as a model, becoming a face of Revlon and Max Factor in their ads. But the family business soon came calling, and she pursued a singing career in London while living there in the mid-eighties, working with some of the biggest names on British popular music at the time. Back in Los Angeles toward the end of the decade, she trained as an actress while remaining active in music; she produced two albums from Brazilian singer Ivan Lins and even managed him.
Her commitment to activism started with demonstrations against nuclear-bomb proliferation in the sevneties, and in she helped found the Los Angeles-based Earth Communications Office to communicate environmental activism to the broader public. Ms. Jones' own group, The Take It Back Foundation, teaches and mobilizes children to take action for the environment.
Is there anything Jolie Jones won't do? (That was a rhetorical question. :-) )
