Ladies and gentlemen, here is the third and ultimate segment of “Alessia Cara: 15 Facts you didn’t know”. Hopefully, by this point, you’ve learned at least 10 things about Alessia but don’t stop there. We still have five more to go so without wasting any more time, let’s get to it.
11. ALESSIA CARA DIDN’T KNOW SHE WANTED TO SING
Like many young people, Alessia didn’t really know what to do at first. She knew she had talents in the arts but directing that was the hard part. At first, it seemed like she wanted to go the visual arts route, however, that dream eventually fizzled out. Let this be a lesson to all the young people out there. You might think you know what you want to do but don’t be afraid to drop one dream in pursuit of another one.
12. ALESSIA CARA IS GOING TO COLLABORATE WITH DRAKE
Alessia is Canadian and Drake is Canadian. Hence, a collaboration is certainly plausible. Besides being from the same country as Drake, Alessia expressed interest in working with the hip-hop artists. Apparently, Drake gave Alessia some Twitter love recently. Perhaps she’s taking that gesture a little far but you never know.
13. ALESSIA CARA THINKS SAILBOATS ARE STRONG
Sailboats seem like an odd thing to call strong, but there’s a method to Alessia’s madness here. She sees sailboats as frail from afar yet they float on with strength. Furthermore, she says this is representative of her own personality. Hence, she got a sailboat tattoo that reminds her she is stronger than she may appear.
14. ALESSIA CARA HAS NO SALIVA GLANDS
When Alessia was younger, she had surgery where they had to remove everything from the left side of her face. This included saliva glands. Due to this, Alessia tastes everything 5% less than anyone else. The surgery also left her with a large scar.
15. ALESSIA CARA USED TO BE SHY
Seeing Alessia perform, one wouldn’t think she’s a shy person. That’s because YouTube helped with her confidence. By performing in front of a camera, Alessia eventually got over her stage fright and blossomed into the radiant performer we see today.
