In a male dominated environment, Diane Warren marks a strength diversion in the music industry. She’s one of the most successful female songwriters in the industry. Placing her in league with mega producers and songwriters having scored over 32 top ten hits over the course of her career. And, that’s just as of 2016.
Diane Warren is of Jewish heritage, placing her with other similarly legendary entertainers Barbra Streisand and Bette Midler. The last of which she even wrote a song for, “Moonlight Dancing” being included on Bette Midler’s blockbuster album Some People’s Lives.
Both Bonnie McKee and Ester Dean have pursused solo careers. Neither have scored a hit yet, except for Ester Dean’s top 40 entry “Drop It Low”. Diane Warren it seems has never had an interest in the spotlight for herself.
She’s a solitary writer. Most of her hits were penned by herself. Including the Celine Dion smash “Because You Loved Me” that spent over six weeks at number one and the massive Leann Rime song, “How Do I Live.”
