Danielle Brisebois has never been afraid of taking risks.
One of the biggest she ever took was to walk away from acting when she was 18 to concentrate on her music career.
Though there have been struggles and disappointments along the way, Brisebois has become an accomplished, award-winning composer. She's co-written such songs as Natasha Bedingfield's hits "Unwritten" and "Pocketful of Sunshine" and is an Oscar nominee this year for the romantic ballad "Lost Stars" from the musical comedy-drama "Begin Again."
