Former child star, Jennifer McGill, has always had a passion for music and entertaining. Unlike her Mickey Mouse Club co-stars who went on to have massive careers in the industry, Jennifer just released her debut full length album, “Unbreakable.”

Out of all the interviews I have done over the last couple of years, this interview ranks among the top 3. Although Jennifer McGill didn’t go on to have a hit album immediately after her stint on the Mickey Mouse Club, she kept performing and learning despite taking a break from Hollywood. Now, at the age of 40, Jennifer is back and sharing her inspiring story, proving it’s never too late to pursue your dreams.
