Sometimes the best kind of discoveries are the ones that are completely random. Those moments when you don’t go looking for it but rather it comes looking for you.
That’s exactly how I found January’s Hidden Gems in Music artist. It was late at night and I had my Pandora radio on shuffle and low and behold there she was.
Alessia Cara is a 19 year old singer from Beampton Canada. She has two full length albums Four pink Walls and Know it all. Her latest single Wild things can be heard on Freeform (formally known as ABC family.)
The song is an anthem about breaking the mold. Marching to the beat of your own drum. It’s about standing out from the crowd and being yourself
We make our own rules, our own room, no bias here
Let ’em sell what they are sellin’, there are no buyers here
So gather all the rebels now, we’ll rebel rouse and sing aloud
We don’t care what they say no way, no way
Those lyrics are bold and brave. In a music industry where everyone is trying to be cookie cutters it’s nice to see someone going against the grain.
With Alessia being just 19 years of age we here at trevordecker.com are certain that she has a long successful career ahead of her.
We hope this song is music to your ears and that it inspires you to check out more from her. We know that she’s earned fans in us.

“The Fosters” Is Ending But The Story Isn’t Over
On January 2nd it was officially announced that the critically acclaimed drama The Fosters would be coming to an end after five seasons.
Since its inception in 2013, the show tackled topics that most were afraid to talk about.. Immigration, same-sex marriage, corruption in the foster system, and discrimination against the black community just to name a few.
What made this show so beloved is its authenticity. Every week its viewers felt like they were apart of The Fosters family. Their struggles were our struggles and we all had someone we connected with.
Although this chapter may be coming to a close it doesn’t mean the story is over. With ends comes new beginnings and that’s exactly what we’re getting with the spin-off (Title TBA) starring Maia Mitchell (Callie) and Cierra Rameriz (Mariana)
According to show producer Peter Paige the 13 part series will follow the sisters many years into the future as they begin their lives in LA. Mariana will be focusing on her STEM career while Callie will be working in social work (no surprise there) Other family members will be making cameos throughout the show.
Maia Mitchell and Hayden Byerly (Jude) took to Instagram expressing their gratitude for the show and its fans

Dear Fosters fans, there's a lot I want to say so bear with me. Firstly, I want to say thank you. I am so proud of our show and the stories we've been able to tell and the people we've been able to touch, but none of that is possible without your full hearted support. Your loyalty means the world to all of us at The Fosters and we are truly grateful to every single one of you. Sometimes great things come to an end, but to have achieved five seasons and over one hundred episodes with the most supportive, loving, talented and professional cast and crew is more than I could have dreamed of and for that I am so grateful. This show and its fans have become home to me so it's a truly bitter-sweet moment. Moving forward, I am especially grateful to @freeform for their commitment to keep the characters and the spirit of the show alive. It's with a full heart that I start a new chapter with my on and off screen sister, @cierraramirez. We're excited to see where Callie and Mariana take us next… 👯💕

I'm so happy to have grown up on such an incredible show with such wonderful people. These past five years have flown by and I'm so happy we got to share everything with so many. This may be the end of The Fosters but a new chapter in life. Never forget all of the important and valuable lessons you've learned from this show. Continue to feel love and joy in your heart knowing how surreal this all was. No matter what I'll always remember and love my Fosters Family ❤
The show will end with a three-part season finale in summer 2018. Season 5B kicks off January 9th on Freeform
The Fosters Season 5 Episode 1 “Resist” (a review)
Last night the 5th season of the Fosters aired on Freeform and what a wild ride it was. It picked up right where season 4 left off. Callie once again finding herself in a situation that could be life threatening all because she feels that she’s doing the right thing.
The opening moments of the show find Callie, Dimond and another one of Rauel’s workers in that dreaded hotel room all the while Stef (or as we like to call her here on trevordecker.com mama bear) is on the hunt to find Callie.
We don’t know about you guys but we were definitely holding our breaths the entire time. The moment when Callie reveals to Rauel that her name is not Chriatina but Callie and that her mom is a cop and is on her way had us all gasping for air.
The intensity doesn’t stop because even after Stef comes to the girls’ aid (thank god) there’s this moment where Diamond refuses to put down the gun and one could imagine what we were all thinking “this is going to end badly.” Thankfully that wasn’t the case and all three girls were unharmed and Rauel was hauled off to jail.
Now we would be remiss if we didn’t talk about the conversation Stef and Callie had in the car after the search and rescue. Anybody who’s been watching this show for the last 5 years knows that trouble always follows Callie so when Stef tells her about Troy Johnson confessing to the murder of Martha Johnson and Callie ask “what happens now” and Stef replies “I don’t know but you almost didn’t stay alive long enough to find out” our hearts broke and in that moment you could truly see how much Stef loves her daughter and how truly hurt she was.
Meanwhile, Mariana is still at the forefront of the Anchor Beach protest. (for those who missed it in season 4 Mr. Stratos (Nicks dad) is trying to turn Anchor Beach into a private school with the help of new principal Drew. He orders the kids to go home but Mariana being the strong-headed character we all know and love refuses which causes Stratos to invoke his anger on her causing baby brother Jude to step in and ends up getting pepper sprayed in the face. (Yes you read that right and trust us we were livid too)
Jude’s act wasn’t in vain though because this allows Monte (former principal) to see what awful things Stratos and Drew are up too, causing her to revoke her decision to resign once again making her the principal of Achor Beach (making the vote to turn AB into a private school null and void, so yes there’s still hope.
The last topic we have to discuss is Jesus and his whereabouts. Last we saw Jesus he was running off to who knows where in the pouring rain after he over heard the crowd of students talking about Emma’s abortion. We quickly learn he’s headed home and when he arrives he takes a baseball bat to all of Brandon’s prize possessions (except his keyboard) thank goodness Gabe stopped him when he did.
Jesus Gabe and Anna are all sat on the couch and that’s when Jesus reveals to his parents why he’s so angry with his brother. Moments later Brandon and Emma arrive home only to tell Jesus that they never slept together and Brandon wasn’t the father of Emma’s baby.
This scene pulled on our heartstrings especially in the moment where Jesus says “but I had a dream Emma told me you two were together… I guess just because you have a dream doesn’t mean it really happened” It’s here where the viewers start to realize how bad Jesus’ TBI (traumatic brain injury) really is and all we can hope is that he gets better.
That just about wraps up the season 5 premiere and its main points. Did you guys enjoy the season opener? Let us know in the comments.
It would seem that season 5 will focus more on Jesus’ TBI, more self-discovery for Callie and of course the Achor beach’s future. If you liked this recap then we java good news for you! You can expect one for every single ep throughout the season so be sure to join in on the fun and Happy watching!

Pretty Little Liars Stars Get Matching Tattoos After Wrapping Series Finale
All six of the Liars — Troian Bellisario (Spencer), Ashley Benson (Hanna), Shay Mitchell (Emily), Sasha Pieterse (Ali), Lucy Hale (Aria) and Janel Parrish (Mona) — got matching tattoos on their index fingers in honor of the iconic “shh” moment during the series’ title sequence; each actress was inked with the first letter of her character’s name.
“We got the Shhhhhhh immortalized,” Parrish captioned the group photo on Instagram.
The Fosters: first look at season 4
When season 3 of The Fosters ended there were a lot of unanswered questions. Who let out Callie’s biggest secret? What will Lena and Stef do now that they know Callie and Brandon slept together?
Perhaps the biggest question at the end of season 3 was the dramatic cliffhanger ending. Why is Nick in the school parking lot with a gun and what are his intentions?
Now thanks to this exclusive season 4 premiere trailer it seems we may have some answers and boy let us tell you it’s intense.
If this is just what’s to come on the premier we can only imagine what the rest of the season has in store.
The season 4 premiere of The Fosters airs June 20th @ 8PMPT/5PMET on Freeform
