“From Being Tone Deaf To Hit Songwriter – Meet Diane Warren (Inspirational Woman) ”
Folk this detemination
At the age of five, Diane Warren was diagnosed with tone deafness. That proved to be a little off the mark. One of Hollywood’s most prolific and successful songwriters, she has crafted hits for the likes of Bon Jovi, Cher, Whitney Houston, LeAnn Rimes, Toni Braxton, Mary J. Blige, Eric Clapton and Aerosmith, among countless others. As an alienated Jewish kid growing up in Van Nuys, California, Warren set her sights on a songwriting career when she was 14, and persisted with the support of her father, to whom she paid tribute with the Celine Dion smash hit “Because You Loved Me.” A Grammy Award winner and six-time Oscar nominee, Warren is uncompromising as both an artist and a businesswoman — as she proved when she started her own publishing company to maintain control over her songs.
