It's no secret that Alessia Cara has become one of the world's biggest breakthrough artists of 2016. After posting her own covers of artists such as Adele, Amy Winehouse and Chris Brown, the 19 year old racked up a huge YouTube following, and as of right now she's bagged herself over 250,000 Facebook fans!

In true fairytale fashion, a music executive's daughter stumbled upon Alessia's channel when helping her father find new talent online. The exec flew Alessia out to New York where she begun working on music in the studio with producer Sebastian Kole.

Her debut single 'Here' has been streamed over a million times and made its Vodafone Big Top 40 debut in January 2016. In its very first week, the song amassed a huge 500,000 listens and she hasn't looked back since.
