Christina Perri collected her ticket to fame when her song “Jar of Hearts” was featured on So You Think You Can Dance in June 2010. Afterwards the single started to raise eyebrows, selling 48, 000 digital copies, and more than 100, 000 copies in total. Perri began making guest performances on TV shows like The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Early Show on CBS.

This was a dream come true for the Philadelphia native. On her personal blog, Perri attributes her sudden success to positive thinking. “Maybe someone somewhere does not believe in the whole “put it out into the universe + believe it + watch it come true” philosophy and maybe after hearing my story they just slightly will. Maybe they’ll throw their wishes into the cosmos + in 2011 get that epic job… or catch the biggest wave… or the catch the biggest catch,” she says on her blog.

Perri moved to Los Angeles on her 21st birthday to try to make it big in the music industry. Her song “Jar of Hearts” has a musical style that is similar to Sara Bareilles “Gravity” and a vocal sound similar to Alanis Morissette.  In November she released her EP, “The Ocean Way”.  The self taught guitarist is now on everyone’s radar in 2011.”While all of this was happening, I barely slept,” Perri says, “because I was afraid it was just a dream; that I’d wake up and none of it would be real. One minute I did not exist in the music world and the next minute I did. It has been so unbelievable.”

She is currently working on her LP and says that all of the songs are going to be about love. We cannot wait Christina!

Marsha Ambrosius

“Late Nights and Early Mornings”.

The former member of Floetry, Marsha Anbrosius (pronounced ambrosia) is celebrating her new look by flaunting her new slimmer body and releasing her new solo studio album “Late Nights and Early Mornings”.   Marsha, known as ‘the Songstress’ in the British R&B duo Floetry, (while Natalie Stewart was known as ‘the Floacist’) has a knack for making singing look virtually effortless. I had heard about Floetry throughout the years, but I wasn’t really aware of their talent until I caught their performance in Mos Def’s ‘Def Poetry’ HBO series. Together, they released two studio albums and a live album. However in 2007 the group parted ways and Marsha was signed to Aftermath Entertainment. .

Marsha is one of those artists who has had to work diligently and consistently to slowly make her way into the spotlight. In 2009 she signed with J records after her sold out show in New York City. She’s been in the business for years, so we can expect good things from her upcoming solo album “Late Nights and Early Mornings”. She says her new album will be sensual, sincere and seductive. The single “Hope She Cheats on You (With Basketball Player)” is certainly sincere. Marsha calls it the ‘reality of a bad breakup’.

Look out for the release of the album “Late Nights and Early Mornings” on February 22nd 2011. In the mean while tell us, what do you think of her singles?
