Behind the Scenes of “Jar of Hearts”

Artist Christina Perri got her big break on Season 7 of So You Think You Can Dance when Billy Bell and All-Star Kathryn McCormick danced a Contemporary piece by Stacey Tookey to her song, “Jar of Hearts.” After the song aired on June 30th, fans responded extremely well to the song and flocked to iTunes. The unsigned singer suddenly sold over 100,000 copies of “Jar of Hearts,” performed on talk shows, and was invited back on So You Think You Can Dance to perform the song during the Top 7 results show. During this performance, Christina was joined by All-Stars Allison Holker and Neil Haskell in a piece choreographed by SYTYCD Executive Producer Jeff Thacker.

Since her debut on So You Think You Can Dance, Christina was signed to Atlantic Records and has performed with some of today’s top artists including Jason Mraz and Bruno Mars. Currently, Christina is making her first official music video for “Jar of Hearts.” She created a behind the scenes look at the music video, which includes SYTYCD’s very own Allison Holker and Kathryn McCormick. In the clip, Christina said, “I really hope that the video connects me to the song and entertains all of the fans of So You Think You Can Dance because it’s because of them that this even happened. I really hope that they love it. I hope that they love the dance…and that they just feel like we did this song justice with this video.” Check it out:

Congratulations, Christina!

The full video is coming soon.
