Linda Perry biography

The songwriter behind P!nk and Christina Aguilera’s biggest hits!

Linda Perry is a singer-songwriter, record producer, and engineer, most famous for her ’92 hit What’s Up, with her band 4 Non Blondes.

If you don’t know the song it’s probably because most people think of it as called What’s Going On.

But Linda is no one-hit-wonder, following her worldwide success with What’s Up, she took on a career as a songwriter and producer and penned more hits like Get The Party Started by P!nk (often referred to as I’m Coming Up!).

Perhaps most famously, Linda wrote and produced Beautiful, with Christina Aguilera on vocals.

Apart from these smash hits, Linda has also contributed to works by Adele, Jewel, Alicia Keys, Gwen Stefani, Faith Hill, KT Tunstall, Courtney Love, and Dolly Parton.

Not just a writer and producer of her own songs, Linda has also recorded covers of songs such as Creep by Radiohead and Mad World by Tears For Fears.

In 2017, Linda Perry launched a record label/artist management company called We Are Hear.

Beautiful – Chords

The chords could be seen as from either the key of Eb or Ab, or both at the same time!

It’s tricky to play chords in keys such as Eb and Ab when you don’t play with a capo. All chords will be barre chords.

Beautiful – Lyrics

Every day is so wonderful,
then suddenly it’s hard to breathe.
Now and then I get insecure,
from all the pain, I’m so ashamed.
