Grammy-winner, and Ontario native Alessia Cara is no stranger to Niagara Falls, and is partnering with Niagara Falls Tourism in an exciting new project that highlights the location as a world-class entertainment destination.
Alessia Cara Live From Niagara Falls, is a thrilling media production created in conjunction with tourism partners and the Government of Ontario. The production showcases Niagara Falls in a way that’s never been done before, featuring Alessia and her band in all new performances filmed at iconic locations. The special performances include three never-before-heard recordings of her biggest hits and personal interviews in which she shares her memories of visiting Niagara Falls, and the stories behind her chart topping music. The talented singer-songwriter recently shared her Niagara Falls performance of her newest single “Sweet Dreams” with the audience of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, which opened with a custom built set at the Sheraton Fallsview Hotel, before revealing that she is standing aboard Niagara City Cruises, with the Canadian Horseshoe Falls brilliantly illuminated in the background.
Alessia was named Best New Artist at the 2018 Grammy Awards, making her the first Canadian artist to win the award. Her journey to billboard success began at age 13 by posting cover videos to YouTube. She released her first single “Here” in April 2015 through Def Jam records, and has been a mainstay on top 40 radio since with tracks that include “Wild Things”, “Growing Pains”, “Trust My Lonely”, “Rooting For You” to name a few.
Her Niagara Falls project takes her full circle back to YouTube for a digital launch on the Niagara Falls Tourism YouTube channel on August 27 at 6pm. A day before it airs on CityTV channels throughout Ontario at 7:00pm EST, in addition to major Canadian cities including Montreal, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver.
