Bensalem native Christina Perri invited Miss Philadelphia Maria Sciorillo to meet her when she played the Tower Theater with James Blunt Saturday.

Why? Because the newly crowned Sciorillo performed Perri's breakout hit "Jar of Hearts" to win the Miss Philadelphia pageant.

When Perri, an Archbishop Ryan graduate, heard through a friend about Sciorillo singing her mournful ballad, she contacted the beauty queen, who was 2009 Miss Pennsylvania, to tell her she was touched and honored, and invited her to the Tower gig.

Perri's debut full-length album, "Lovestrong," will be released May 10 on Atlantic Records.
