When multi-platinum artist and producer Pharrell Williams is so anxious to get in touch with someone that he contacts their high school to try and track them down, you know that there is something special happening.
Which is exactly what happened to singer-songwriter and YouTube sensation Alyssa Bernal.
The teenager was shocked, adding, “They didn’t know who Pharrell was! They just thought it was some shady guy trying to get a hold of me.”
Thankfully, her mother finally spotted his MySpace message and 24 hours later, she and Alyssa were on a plane from their home in San Antonio, TX to meet Pharrell and Interscope Records Chairman Jimmy Iovine in Los Angeles.
“Finding a new talent like Alyssa is so exciting to me,” Pharrell remarked. “There are a lot of young singers out there who can carry a tune, but Alyssa is the real deal. She is a true musician with an incredible voice.”
Alyssa has since recorded her debut album, In Love Again For The First Time and it’s expected to drop at retailers later this year.
Until then, you may catch her first single “Cali Cali Cali” which is also available on iTunes.
