With her unmistakable voice and unique pop sound, Jessica soon caught the eye of Columbia Records executive Tommy Mattola, and after touring with boy-band 98 Degrees, she quickly burst onto the music scene in 1999 with her debut release Sweet Kisses. Her RIAA-certified double platinum debut featured Jessicas breakthrough hit, "I Wanna Love You Forever," which hit #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
