2018's "Best New Artist" Grammy Award Winning Canadian singer/songwriter and Def Jam Recordings artist Alessia Cara emerged onto the music scene in 2015 with her global anthem "Here." Cara's first release "Here" grabbed the world's attention when it garnered over 500,000 streams on Soundcloud in its first week, going on to become Spotify's Most Viral Song of 2015 selling over 3 million copies. A five-track EP, Four Pink Walls, soon followed before the release of the full-length certified platinum KNOW-IT-ALL. Alessia lent her voice to "How Far I'll Go," the official song for Disney's animated film "Moana," penned by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Her multi- platinum #1 hit single, "Scars to Your Beautiful," is Cara's gut-wrenching take on female identity, on body image and on deleterious behaviors in the name of beauty. "Stay," her #1 hit with Zedd, has sold over 2 million copies and has been called the "Song of the Summer." "1-800-273-8255," her most recent #1 smash with Logic, went platinum 4x, contributing to her 6 global smash hits and 8.5 billion streams worldwide. She was one of the most-streamed new female artists of 2017.
