We normally associate our favorite hit songs with the singer or group who performs them, but there are many, many talented writers out there who provide these singers with some of their biggest hits. Diane Warren is one of those people.

According to Wikipedia, Diane Warren was born on September 7th in Van Nuys, California. She has written some of the biggest hits to ever be played on Pop, Rock, Country and R&B radio.

**Trivia Fact** Diane was the first songwriter in the history of Billboard to have seven hits, all by different artists, on the singles chart at the same time.
