Named as iTunes’ “Breakthrough Pop Artist of 2011,” Christina Perri attracted immediate popular and critical applause with her extraordinary debut album, lovestrong. Highlighted by the 2x platinum certified smash, “Jar of Hearts.” lovestrong. has also proven an unqualified international sensation, with top 5 success in Australia and Ireland as well as top 10 sales in Canada and the United Kingdom.
An engaging and magnetic live performer, Perri supported lovestrong. with a series of acclaimed tours, including dates alongside fellow Atlantic recording artist James Blunt as well as her own sold-out headline trek.
In November, Perri followed lovestrong. with the Gold certified hit single, “A Thousand Years,” exclusively featured on Summit Entertainment/Chop Shop/Atlantic’s “THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1 – ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK.”
Perri also made a number of high profile TV appearances in recent months, including the syndicated LIVE! With Kelly, VH1’s Morning Buzz, ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, NBC’s The Today Show and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman and The Early Show, TBS’ Conan, and the syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show.
