Renowned for her epic romantic ballads, Diane Warren was one of the most prolific and successful female songwriters of all time, having penned hundreds of chart hits beginning in the early 1980s. A Grammy Award and Golden Globe winner, as well as a multiple Oscar nominee, Warren first achieved success with tracks written for the likes of Laura Branigan, DeBarge and Starship and subsequently found herself courted by much bigger superstar names. After giving Cher her biggest hit in 15 years, Warren went onto write number one singles for Toni Braxton, Brandy and Celine Dion, break chart records with LeAnn Rimes' "How Do I Live" and compose much-loved film themes for the likes of Gloria Estefan, Aerosmith and Faith Hill. Her phenomenally successful career also took in the Olympics, "American Idol" (Fox 2002- ) and even the Eurovision Song Contest. But despite her ubiquity in the upper reaches of the chart, Warren remained a relatively anonymous figure happy to let her winning way with a melody do the talking.
