(KUTV) The music business ended up being tough on Moana Wolfgramm Feinga and the rest of The Jets.

"We've learned our one lesson, and that is you put your family and your relationships first," Feinga said. "If the business is going to tear it apart, you've got to drop the business and keep the family."

Feinga even left the business for about 10 years and lived in Hawaii.

"I tried to leave and just say, 'I don't want to do this,'" she said.

She got married and now has six children.

While in Hawaii she did a gospel album with her sisters for their children and sold it in a Christian bookstore there.

"It grew legs and ended up in some of the LDS bookstores here," Feinga said. "It's just been one of those heirlooms that we are happy we did for our kids."

Doing the album led her back to music, and The Jets have since done some reunion shows.

"Everyone's so much older, but I think the artists as well as the audience is just at a different place. They appreciate it more," she said.
