Soap fans already know that Jen Lilley is a talented actress from her roles as Theresa Donovan on DAYS OF OUR LIVES and her stint as Maxie Jones on GENERAL HOSPITAL, but they might not be aware that she’s also an incredible singer! Her new single, “King of Hearts” has just been released, and you can watch the music video for it below. Then you can click here to listen to it or download it for yourself . “Let me know what you think,” she posted to Instagram. “I can’t stop dancing to it!”
The retro-tinged tune is a sassy ‘60s throwback with an inspirational message for today, and is the lead-off single to her upcoming album that is due out in February of 2019. Lilley also released a Christmas album, Tinsel Time, back in November of 2015.
Lilley is also heavily involved in charities, and 100% of the proceeds from the initial sales of “King of Hearts” went towards providing a young boy named John who lives in Africa with a life-saving heart surgery. “After that, i’m donating to Project Orphans to help support their monthly operations through March,” Lilly shared. In addition, she launched the “King of Hearts Challenge” to help raise more money for John, urging people to download her single and upload a video of themselves dancing to it before challenging three friends to do the same.
