19-Year-Old Makes Her Impact on the Music World – Alessia Cara

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon - Season 2Know-It-All is the title of Canadian singer Alessia Cara’s debut album, which was released last year.  The 19-year-old’s first single “Here” went on to become a surprise hit.  It should not have been such a surprise as previous to the album release she had gained lots of notoriety on YouTube due to her acoustic cover songs.

 

Born in Brampton, Ontario and of Italian heritage, Alessia has always been a singer, singing then teaching herself to play guitar at the age of 10 and began at the ripe old age of 13 to post videos of her singing different songs on YouTube.  She gained such a following that she came to be noticed by record labels and signed at the age of 18 with Def Jam Recordings.  Her voice has been described as smooth and compared to the likes of Norah Jones.

 

2016 seems like it is going to be a good year for the young singer as she is going to play at monster festival Coachella and had been shortlisted for the prestigious BBC award, Sound Of… and finished second to the winner.  A star on the rise as demonstrated by the show being sold out.
