Music Choice Exclusive: Alessia Cara

Our artist of the month is singer-songwriter Alessia Cara — a prominent new voice in music who has been rising to fame since the release of her hit single ‘Here‘.

Her unique sound, relatable messages, and dynamic collaborations helped her to build an audience. Now, she wants to change things up by writing her second studio album entirely on her own.

“I just thought it was important for me to have it be my story and just be able to tell it all myself.”

Cara characterizes her first album as a statement of rebellion, but says she is now ready to focus on facing problems head-on.

Now that her passionate audience is both relating to and depending upon her, she feels the responsibility to make music that is beneficial in their lives.

You can listen to Alessia Cara’s latest music by downloading the Music Choice app or tuning in on cable or DirecTV.
