Since our favorite lady Siobhan is off for the week, I am stepping up to bring you the latest and greatest for your Monday Music Must!
You may have never heard of Christina Perri before, but after the June 30th episode of “So You Think You Can Dance” she has exploded into the collective music consciousness. From behind dancers Billy Bell and Kathryn McCormick, Perri’s song “Jar of Hearts” reached the ears of many; more than 48,000 downloads of her song on the Billboard’s Hot Digital Songs charts debuted her at No. 28 this week.* Not bad for a Philly girl who isn’t even signed!
Perri’s voice is haunting in the honest hurt that can be felt in the song lyrics. Such an open expression of emotion will hopefully pay off in the future. Good Luck Christina! I’ll be getting your EP when it comes out!
