My Sunday ‘To Be’ List


I want “to be” someone who is a voice for animals.

I want “to be” someone who writes great songs that touch people.

I want “to be” a good friend to my friends.

And since this is Oscar weekend I would like “to be” an Oscar winner.


Diane Warren is one of the most continuously prolific and successful contemporary songwriters of our time. Her songs have been featured in more than 100 motion pictures resulting in 12 Academy Award® nominations, most recently for “Io Si (Seen)” performed by Laura Pausini for the Netflix film The Life Ahead starring Sophia Loren and directed by Edoardo Ponti. She is a Grammy winner with 15 nominations, a two-time Golden Globe Award winner with six nominations and Emmy winner. She has penned nine #1 and thirty-two top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2001.

Her newest original song is “Somehow You Do” which is performed by Reba McEntire and was written for the upcoming feature film Four Good Days.

In Summer 2021, for the first time in her career, she will release her own album, Diane Warren: The Cave Sessions Vol. 1 (via BMG), which will feature an all-star line-up of talent who will bring her songwriting and storytelling to life, including John Legend, Celine Dion, Ty Dolla $ign and Darius Rucker.

She is the sole owner of her publishing company Realsongs.
