Alessia Cara Is That Girl

Happy birthday, Alessia Cara! Today is the songstress’s 20th birthday and she decided to give her fans a present by announcing U.S. headline tour dates and releasing a new music video.

The new dates run from Sept. 29 to Oct. 29, starting in Silver Spring, Md., running west and then back eastward, ending in in Orlando. Some notable venues Cara will be headlining include Nashville’s  in Miami Beach, Fla.,  in Boston and the .

Prior to the headline tour Cara will be opening for Coldplay through July and August. The songstress just finished the European leg with Chris Martin and the guys and she is set to perform at  later this month.

The new video is for the track “Scars To Your Beautiful” off her 2015 LP Know-It- All.

“Scars” will be at the center of a campaign with I Am That Girl, a nonprofit organization focused on the national conversation around body-image. Cara and IATG will collaborate on live events and an educational curriculum dealing with body image and self-esteem. Alessia will also be visiting and performing at pediatric hospitals during her headline tour.
