Two weeks ago, Christina, was just another struggling L.A. artist waiting tables at the Melrose Place Café. But then, right in the middle of one of her worst days at work, A friend Keltie Colleen, a Radio City Rockette got the Philly-bred troubadour’s demo into the hands of “SYTYCD” choreographer Stacey Tookey–who loved “Jars Of Hearts” so much, she asked Christina to rush-record a professional version to be used for the above Billy Bell/Kathryn McCormick “SYTYCD” routine on June 30.

The song then exploded overnight, hitting number 13 on iTunes, number 23 on the Billboard Hot Digital Songs chart, number 58 on the Billboard Hot 100, number 54 on Canada’s single chart, number 10 on Amazon’s digital singles chart, and number 2 on Billboard’s Heatseekers countdown. And it quickly sold more than 100,000 copies. All this without a record deal!
