The Man) –was an online phenomenon, drawing more than 58 million views and counting at Perri's official YouTube channelwww.youtube.com/user/lovemspenny. Additionally, the album features the singles "Burning Gold" and "The Words" not to mention the upbeat fan favorite, "Be My Forever", the duet that Christina did with Ed Sheeran, which can be heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awMQlSqI564can
Named iTunes' "Breakthrough Pop Artist of 2011," Perri earned critical applause and an increasingly fervent fan following with her extraordinary debut, "lovestrong." Highlighted by the 4x-platinum certified smash, "Jar of Hearts," the album – produced by GRAMMY®-winning producer Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, My Morning Jacket) – entered the SoundScan/Billboard 200 among the top 5 upon its initial 2011 release, while also proving an unqualified international sensation with top 5 success in Australia and Ireland as well as top 10 sales in Canada and the United Kingdom.
Perri followed "lovestrong." with the RIAA 4x-platinum certified hit single, "A Thousand Years," exclusively featured on Summit Entertainment/Chop Shop/Atlantic's "THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1 & 2– ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACKS." The track was a multi-format radio favorite, with top 10 airplay at Hot AC and top 25 spins at CHR/Top 40 outlets nationwide.
Colbie Caillat is a two-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter who has sold over six million albums and ten million singles worldwide. Her breakthrough hit "Bubbly" remains "one of the best-selling digital tracks in history" and her multi-platinum debut COCO hit #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, while her gold-selling sophomore setBreakthrough landed at #1. 2011's All Of You yielded the gold "I Do" and platinum "Brighter Than The Sun," which enjoyed over twenty film and television placements.
In 2014, Caillat released her fourth full-length album,Gypsy Heart, which landed in the Top 20 of Billboard's Top 200 Chart fueled by the strength of her gold-selling single "Try". Co-written by legendary producer and singer-songwriter, Babyface, "Try" became one of the biggest performing songs featured as iTunes "Single Of The Week." Quickly amassing nearly 40 million YouTube/VEVO views, the single's inspirational companion video became a global viral sensation and reached the #1 spot on the iTunes Video Chart. At radio, that success continued as the song went Top 10 at Hot AC.
An international live draw, Caillat has played sold out venues everywhere alongside artists from John Mayer to Sheryl Crow.
After two years of writing Rachel Platten would find her first big spark with "Fight Song." She turned inward by telling her own story through it. Turns out it was just the message people needed. "The reactions were honest, and intense. People have been sending me the most beautiful stories of how they refuse to give up," she recalls. The fire that "Fight Song" ignited has connected not only with music fans but also Columbia Records. Now planning her major label debut, Rachel is currently touring the U.S. with Andy Grammer, performing a number of songs from her cache.
