    Christina Perri almost gave up on her music career because she was so tired of being a waitress while toiling to make it big. Before "Jar of Hearts" (from Lovestrong) became a smash hit, she considered leaving Los Angeles and returning home to Philly and giving up. Thankfully, she didn't!

    She told a UK paper that "I was too tired to work on my music but would do it anyway as it was the only thing that made me feel alive. I thought about quitting at least 20 times and thought about moving back home to the East Coast. It's very difficult doing something when nothing is coming from it. So I hope my story shows that you can follow your dreams. Now I can't believe that if I'd gone home I'd be waitressing in Philadelphia, rather than about to start on my first UK tour."

    That's the spirit. Never give up or give in!
