Wishing the happiest of birthdays to the incredibly talented Alessia Cara!
Alessia was born July 11, 1998, and today she is celebrating her 22nd birthday. This pop singer-songwriter started her musical career by uploading acoustic song covers to YouTube in 2015. She then got signed and went on to sing with EP Entertainment/Def Jam Recordings. Her single “Here” was named a can’t miss track by SPIN Magazine and was acclaimed by Cosmopolitan and Complex.
Her exposure increased in 2016 when she was handpicked by Coldplay as tour opener for their world tour. In 2017, “Scars to Your Beautiful,” climbed into the Top Ten of the Hot 100 and topped the U.S. pop chart. She won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 2018.
Most of Alessia’s songs are very powerful and have so much meaning to them. To celebrate Alessia’s special day, here are some of her best song lyrics and quotes!
“But there’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark. You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are.
And you don’t have to change a thing the world could change its heart. No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful.”
“And when she told me, ‘Little girl, the answer is love’ so those are words that I keep with me. Though the seasons change so quickly, keep them buried in my heart. And never fought.”
“Good girls don’t make history.”
“But really I would rather be at home all by myself not in this room with people who don’t even care about my well-being. I don’t dance, don’t ask, I don’t need a boyfriend. So you can, go back, please enjoy your party”
“See, I need you and sometimes we need to shed our facade and be just who we are. All broken and torn, then we could be stars.”
“We will carve our place into time and space. We will find our way, or we’ll make a way, say hey, hey, hey. Find your grace, don’t you hide your face and let it shine.”
“Let’s make forever in this moment. Tell me you love me again, oh again. And I would waste away without you. You’re the shine into my star. I’d be searching till I found you wherever you are you are.”
“Change in every wind. The sands of time don’t know our name. Oh, nothing’s sure, but surely as we stand. I promise I will stay the same”
“We’re alike, you and I. Two blue hearts locked in our wrong minds. So can we make the most out of no time?”
“Cry me a river, build myself a bridge. I’m over this, can’t let memories become the death of me. I’m glad to see everything that you are. And I believe that you are everything I needed. But I don’t need no more.”
“She don’t see her perfect, she don’t understand she’s worth it. Or that beauty goes deeper than the surface. So to all the girls that’s hurting. Let me be your mirror, help you see a little bit clearer. The light that shines within”
Alessia released a new song, “A Little More”, in order to celebrate her birthday. I’m sure we all appreciate how real and vulnerable Alessia’s music is. Happy birthday Alessia!
