One of the few female songwriters who does not also perform, Diane Warren has been crafting bouncy, danceable hits as well as soaring popular tunes. Her efforts have been recorded by major pop stars ranging from Laura Branigan ("Solitaire" 1983) to Cher ("If I Could Turn Back Time" 1989) to Michael Bolton ("Time, Love and Tenderness" 1991). Simultaneously, this California-born songwriter has been composing original tunes for motion picture soundtracks, earning three Oscar nominations for 1987's "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" (from "Mannequin"; co-written with Albert Hammond) 1996's "Because You Loved Me" (from "Up Close and Personal") and 1997's "How Do I Live" (from "Con Air). Among the other songs she has contributed to films are "If You Asked Me To" ("Licence to Kill" 1989), "Every Road Leads Back to You" ("For the Boys" 1991), "You Were Loved" ("The Preacher's Wife" 1996) and both "Hit 'Em High" and "For You I Will" (from "Space Jam" 1996).
