Diane Warren has written some of the movies’ most memorable ballads, from “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” to “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.” Her 2016 has already included an Oscar-nominated collaboration with Lady Gaga and a star-studded empowerment anthem for the First Lady.

“I did some songs with Adele that she still loves,” Warren said. “Hopefully they’ll find their way onto her next album. We did some songs early in the process for 25. But I ran into her and she was like, ‘I still love those songs. I still want them. Don’t give them away.’ And they’re really good songs. Two, I think, are great.”
It pays to be prolific, and Warren’s recent output shows no signs of slowing down.
