In July 2010, the struggling singer-songwriter named Christina Perri performed her defiant break-up anthem”Jar of Hearts” on “So You Think You Can Dance.” The raw, emotional quality of her performance connected with viewers and catapulted the 24-year-old Philadelphia native into the public eye.

Earlier I posted about Little Rock native David Hodges co-writing with Christina Perri on the song “For a thousand years” that was used in the Twilight movies and now their song “Arms” is being used for the trailer for the movie “Safe Haven.” I have posted several videos concerning this song and by the way my wife and I loved the movie SAFE HAVEN.

Below is a blog post by David Hodges from 2011 concerning this song.

It’s been too long…

Hello all,
I’ve been spending most of the last few months keeping up with you guys through Twitter, but I thought I’d start updating on here more regularly so I could fill you in on what’s going on in more than 140 characters. This blog will let you know what i’ve been up to in the songwriting world in the last 12 months or so, and I’ll write another blog updating Avox, Arrows, & other stuff later…

This week has been amazing because Christina Perri’s album lovestrong came out on Tuesday (May 10). So far it’s stayed in the top 5 on iTunes & the reception for the album has been amazing. Christina & I started writing last fall, and the first song we wrote together (“Arms”) is now the single (after “Jar of Hearts”, which really blew up and put her on the map over the last 12 months)! I love how all the songs we wrote together (“Arms”, “Distance”, “The Lonely”, “Miles”, & “Interlude” – an instrumental piece that we did while tracking the record), as well as the rest of the album, turned out. I also join CP & her band to perform on Jimmy Kimmel (airs May 18) & Ellen (airs today, May 13), which was great. I really can’t say enough about CP as an artist & a person – so talented & gracious & honest & kind…I hope you guys love her album as much as I do.
