Alessia Cara’s first
Alessia Cara opened the JUNO Awards in Calgary last night. I’ve attached video below of what it sounded like not from the television broadcast but in the arena, her pure voice, live, and killing it. Impressive, right? SO impressive that by the time she won for Breakthrough Artist there was no doubt about it.
When she went up on stage to collect her award though, she mentioned that it was her first ever acceptance speech. The charm in that comment, non? They’re saying for her that this is just the beginning. Here was a “sleeper” hit going double platinum in the United States. Two years ago she was posting videos on YouTube. And she’s still just 19 years old.
