Biography

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States (2010 – present)

Christina Perri, born August 19, 1986 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States, is a singer-songwriter, guitarist, and pianist. She initially rose to fame with her 2010 debut single “Jar of Hearts,” which charted in the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart after being used in the popular television show, “So You Think You Can Dance.”

Perri grew up in Bensalem, Pennsylvania (a suburb of Philadelphia) with her older brother, Nick Perri, who formerly played guitar with Shinedown, among other artists. She attended Archbishop Ryan High School, and at age 16 taught herself how to play guitar by watching a videotape of Shannon Hoon from the group Blind Melon performing on VH1.

On her 21st birthday, Perri moved to Los Angeles. Later that year she got married and began to produce music videos. She divorced 18 months later and moved back to Philadelphia toward the end of 2009. During this time, she wrote her first song, “Jar of Hearts.” She moved back to Los Angeles, where she spent her time waitressing at the Melrose Cafe during the day and recording music at night.

Perri’s song “Jar of Hearts” was featured on “So You Think You Can Dance” during the June 30, 2010 broadcast. The song was featured in a performance by Billy Bell and Kathryn McCormick. Perri’s friend Keltie Colleen passed the song to show choreographer Stacey Tookey, and later Perri and Colleen watched the performance in the audience.

    Queria tanto ir no show de POA :( Se fosse mais no fim do ano, talvez eu conseguisse ir, mas agora em abril fica muito tenso... Dizem que as vendas estão meio paradas, só espero que a Christina volte aqui em outras oportunidades. É tão triste amar tanto uma cantora e não conseguir ir no show dela =//
