Alessia Cara emerged onto the music scene in 2015 with the release of her iconic anthem “Here.” “Here” garnered over 500,000 total streams in its first week, went on to crack the Top 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 list, and rose to No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop and Pop charts in early 2016. A JUNO award winner for Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Cara has also been nominated for an AMA for Best New Artist of the Year. She also completed a summer tour with Coldplay last year before hitting the road for her “Know-It-All” part 2 tour. A five-track EP, Four Pink Walls, was released in August 2015, followed by the full-length Know- It-All three months later. Her latest hit single, “Scars to Your Beautiful,” is Cara’s gut-wrenching take on female identity, on body image and on deleterious behaviors in the name of beauty. Cara walks listeners through heartache but concludes with strains of promise: “So to all the girls that’s hurting/Let me be your mirror, help you see a little bit clearer,” and the touching refrain: “There’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark /You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are.”
Alessia was most recently named Radio Disney Music Awards’ Breakout Artist Of the Year, and appeared on Saturday Night Live with her performances of “Scars to Your Beautiful” and “River of Tears”. Additionally, she performed “How Far I’ll Go” penned by Lin-Manuel Miranda from the hit Disney movie, Moana.
