Have you heard Christina Perri's new single "Human"?? It's a definite winner-but we'll get to that in a minute! Christina is a 27 year old singer-songwriter Philly native. She has a musically inclined older brother who totally rubbed off on her. Christina taught herself how to play the guitar at the age of 16. Anyone who has picked up a guitar and attempted playing (without lessons) knows how difficult it is! But who is Christina Perri? Well for starters, she's relatable to anyone who has been confused about their future in their early twenties! She left Philly to head west to sunny LA on her 21st birthday. Once there, Christina did some soul-searching but became very homesick. In 2009 she moved back home to Philadelphia and that's when the magic happened!
That year Christina wrote the emotional ballad Jar Of Hearts. It became the hit single that put her on the map! In 2010 the song landed in the lap of a choreographer for the TV show, So You Think You Can Dance? After the duo performed to "Jar Of Hearts" the song went on to sell 48,000 copies!
Christina said that was her big break! After that song hit the Billboards Hot 100 Charts, she was signed to Atlantic Records and has been happily making music ever since. She has one full length album out now and another one hitting iTunes April 1st! It's titled Head Or Heart and if you can't wait to hear it, then check out another song from the album below! Happy Tuesday!
