It is September 23rd 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
Originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the very talented [twenty six year old] singer/songwriter Christina Perri is receiving this week's spot.
Prior to 2010, Christina Perri definitely was not a household name like she may be now. Infact, this young lady, who currently resides in Los Angeles, California, got her first big break when her song Jar Of Hearts appeared on the television show So You Think You Can Dance in mid 2010. And, after the appearance, Jar Of Hearts went on to sell over forty eight thousand digital copies and even appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 list.
Flash forward only two years and Christina Perri now has over one million fans on Facebook, over two hundred million views on Youtube and almost five hundred thousand followers on Twitter. And, at this point, Christina Perri's name is definitely becoming more and more of a household name all around the world.
I can certainly say I am glad this talented young woman was discovered because the music she writes is absolutely stunning. Her songwriting skills, and, of course, absolutely beautiful voice, makes her stand out for sure. And, her newest single, Distance, is this week's 'Song of the Week'.
If you picked up Christina Perri's latest record, titled Lovestrong, you know exactly what she is capable of. Released on May 10th 2011, each of the twelve songs will honestly leave you with the chills. And, this week's 'Song of the Week', Distance, features the amazing voice of Jason Mraz.
So, whether you knew her before or just discovered her now, definitely make sure you follow this young woman. With the music she is capable of producing it is proof her career will go nowhere but up. I truly cannot wait to hear more. And, that is why Distance is this week's 'Song of the Week'.
