Out of a devastating loss rose a song of hope and healing. No child should have to endure what Jenn Bostic went through as a 10-year-old girl—being in a fatal car accident that took her father’s life. She found healing and hope for herself and now for millions across the globe, when she and friends Jimmy Fortune and Zach Runquist wrote the song Jealous of the Angels.
While she grew up knowing that music was her destination, Bostic was taken by surprise at the profound connection this song had across the internet after recording a low-budget music video of it in Waconia.
“The way God has moved through Jealous of the Angels has been incredible to see,” she says. “The song is so much bigger than anything Jimmy, Zach and I could take credit for. It brought me to the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, led me to international touring and allows my dad’s memory to live on. Most importantly, it has touched the hearts of hurting people around the world and has given many the words that they couldn’t find to express their grief. I’ve been singing this song for the past six years and will continue to do so, however, the wings it has been given by so many artists now covering it internationally has allowed me to release it and pour my heart into singing a new song.”
Bostic is our very own hometown sweetheart. Married and based in Nashville, where her career is blossoming, she returns a few times a year to Waconia to perform and reconnect with her roots. “I love to come back and perform in the community that supported me every step of the way,” she says. “Minnesota was the best place I could have possibly grown up.”
