Alessia Cara: Family Dinners, Songwriting, and Becoming Jane

Grammy Award winning (2018) Best New Artist Alessia Cara voices Jane in “The Willoughbys” — an animated film from the children’s book, now streaming on Netflix. The 23-year-old is no stranger to holding audiences with her vocals, but this was her first time voicing a character. She talk about how the process took three years, the call she got after appearing on Jimmy Fallon, her Italian family and the importance of connecting over dinner, and how you can expect to hear about this quarantine time in her future songs.
