The Power of Music and Dance

I am a huge fan of shows like Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance because, not only do they celebrate the beauty of dance, but they also introduce me to music that I wouldn't have heard otherwise, and then subsequently, become a fan of that music. I am convinced that OneRepublic became a household name when "Apologize" appeared during season 3 of SYTYCD in a contemporary routine danced by Anya and Danny.

I hope the same thing happens to this brilliant singer whose song "Jar of Hearts" was featured in a routine tonight with Billy and Kathryn. Remember this name: Christina Perri.

Her voice and songwriting ability is painfully beautiful. One of the best lyrics ever written: "You're gonna catch a cold from the ice inside your soul." Oh this girl has a gift.
