Singer-songwriter Pegi Young; for two decades, she and husband Neil Young have organized star-studded concerts to benefit the Bridge School. A best-of compilation album from those concerts was released last year.

Singer Pegi Young has just released a self-titled debut album after many years of singing backup for her husband, Neil Young. Pegi wrote many of the songs on the album, too.

Her main focus in life, however, has been the creation of the Bridge School for special-needs children like her son Ben, who was born with cerebral palsy.

Now, with her kids grown (the Youngs also have a daughter named Amber), she's found time to get into the studio to record her own music.
