Canadian singer/songwriter and Def Jam recording artist Alessia Cara emerged onto the music scene in 2015 with the release of "Here." Co-written by Sebastian Kole, "Here" garnered over 500,000 total streams in its first week and went on to crack the Top 5 on Billboard's Hot 100 list, and rose to No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop and Pop charts in early 2016. Fast-forward to the present. Cara’s success has continued with a string of Billboard chart-topping hits, a platinum certified debut album, and a GRAMMY Award for Best New Artist.
