I Love Christina Perri’s Music

In July 2010, a struggling singer-songwriter and musician named Christina Perri had a life-changing moment when she was asked to perform a song she had written, a defiant break-up anthem called “Jar of Hearts,” on the Fox show So You Think You Can Dance. The raw, emotional quality of her performance connected with viewers and catapulted the 24-year-old Philadelphia native into the public eye. “Jar of Hearts” went on to sell a million downloads and land Perri, who was then supporting herself as a café manager in Beverly Hills, a deal with Atlantic Records.

The title says it all. I very much love her music. It sounds dark, yet romantic and elegant. Her music is sooo good it sometimes gives me the chills. The piano is always a plus.

Check out three of her songs that are my favorites. Make sure to follow her on Facebook too!

Jar of Hearts

Who do you think you are?
Runnin’ ’round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don’t come back for me
Who do you think you are?

The Lonely

I’m a ghost of a girl that I want to be most.
I’m the shell of a girl that I used to know well.


You put your arms around me
And I believe that it’s easier for you to let me go
You put your arms around me and I’m home
