In 2010, Christina Perri was working as a waitress in Los Angeles as she struggled to carve out a career in music.

Perri's song Jar of Hearts was then used on an American TV talent show, and subsequently became her breakthrough hit. Since then, her music's been featured in the Twilight films, and her debut album has sold seven million copies.

Now she is about to release her second album, much of which was recorded in the UK.
