9 Facts About Alessia Cara That You (PROBABLY) Didn't Know!
Sure, we all know she's an amazing singer and that her debut single 'Here' is an incredible tune, but... We bet you don't know ALL of these facts about her, do you?!
1. She was born and raised in Canada
Her hometown of Brampton, Ontario kinda proves that Canada KNOWS how to produce great musicians. Alessia is one of the long list, which includes Drake, The Weeknd, Carly Rae Jepsen and... (Picture: Getty)
2. Justin Bieber's was the only concert she attended!
We mean, if you're gonna see ONE person live, he's kinda the person to see. But she only ended up going to see the 'Love Yourself' singer because a mate had a spare ticket! (Picture: PA Photos)
3. She started by recording herself on YouTube...
Much like many other singers, Alessia uploaded covers of Justin Timberlake and Sam Smith to YouTube... But unlike others, she had to get all Harry Potter on us, and record them in a closet so her Dad could still hear the TV! (Picture: Getty)
4. Alessia took a year off to devote ALL her time to music
After finishing school, she kinda trumped all of our gap yah's and spent all her time writing music, recording and landing a deal with Def Jam. As you do. (Picture: Getty)
5. She has an adorable tattoo!
Just when you thought tattoos couldn't get any deeper, the significance of Alessia's ink is because even though paper boats are fragile, they float. So even though she may seem small, know she's powerful! BOOM! You tell 'em. (Picture: Getty)
6. Alessia LOVES Instagram
You're rushing to follow her now, aren't you? Good - so it's not just us! To prove how it's her favourite social media app, she even announced the release of her album on there! Beats those pictures of your mate's dinner, doesn't it? (Picture: Instagram)
7. She has more talents than you'd expect!
When Alessia popped by to chat to Capital Xtra, she just wow'd, like... EVERYONE with her insanely good impressions of Adele and Iggy Azalea. Seriously, her take on Lorde is going to make you question what's real and what's not!
8. Alessia used to be really, really, REALLY shy!
She's said it in many interviews that she was always horribly nervous, and wouldn't perform for large audiences. Look at her now - releasing one of the year's coolest anthems and pretending to be other celebrities?! Where's that timid girl gone?!
9. She has the most ADORABLE collection...
We're often reminded of the good bits (and mostly embarrassing bits) from our friends. But Alessia has a better way of cherishing memories. She writes every good thing that has happened to her and stores it in a jar, until she reads them all at the end of the year. N'AWH!
