Christina Perri Returns To Perform

Christina Perri Returns To Perform
Christina Perri, whose song, “Jar of Hearts,” led to overnight success and a record deal after being featured on the show, is back to perform her new single, “Burning Gold,” from her “Head or Heart” album.

While Perri was working as a waitress in 2010, a friend of the then-unsigned aspiring singer/songwriter handed the demo for “Jar of Hearts” to SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE choreographer Stacey Tookey, who used it for a Billy Bell and Kathryn McCormick contemporary routine. The song immediately caught on with fans and hit No. 13 on iTunes, No. 23 on the Billboard Hot Digital Songs chart, No. 58 on the Billboard Hot 100, No. 10 on Amazon's Digital Singles chart and No. 2 on Billboard's Heatseekers countdown. With more than 100,000 copies sold, Perri was invited to the show to perform the song live two weeks later, and landed a deal with Atlantic Records soon thereafter.
