Gallery: Alessia Cara
Canadian Pop sensation, Alessia Cara had never had her own headlining tour come through the city of Calgary prior. She had blown away thousands of people at the Calgary Stampede about two years prior but had yet to play any large venue here. With the release of her new record, The Pains of Growing, she was coming through to the Grey Eagle showing off her beautiful voice. The stage was set up like a studio apartment, a living room and a bedroom with different knick-knacks decorating it all to make it believable. It was stunning. With her performance it felt like a perfect mix of a Broadway show and a live concert. Immediately, Alessia Cara asked everyone to stand up and join her with dancing and throwing arms up. People of all ages were excitedly dancing next to their seats, getting the best look at both Alessia as well as the projections on the walls of the “house.”
Between the entrancing voice of Alessia Cara and the show itself, I highly suggest that given the chance you check out one of her shows. It’s a precious and wholesome spectacle meant to be appreciated.
