Hidden Gems in Music: Alessia Cara

NOTE: This article is 6 years old and may not include the most recent information.

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 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.
