Alessia Cara Reveals the Best Advice Coldplay's Chris Martin Has Given Her

Alessia Cara belts out some of her hits while performing at the Alessia Cara Event at The Grammy Museum on Thursday (November 17) in Los Angeles.

During her intimate acoustic set, the 20-year-old singer performed “I’m Yours,” “Wild Things,” “River of Tears,” “Scars to Your Beautiful,” and “Here.”

Before her performance, Alessia sat down with with moderator Scott Goldman, vice president of the Grammy Foundation, for a Q&A.

Alessia dished on some of the best advice she received from Coldplay singer Chris Martin while opening for the band on tour.

Chris basically said, ‘The crowd always gives you what you give them, so if you give them all your energy and all your love and you connect with them as much as possible easily they’ll give that back to you. It’s like a conversation,’” she told the crowd.

“When you have an opening slot, that’s a lot harder because oftentimes you just think, ‘All right, let’s get to the real stuff,’ Alessia added. “Everyone was actually very receptive in a great way. The whole audience, like, every place we went to, from Europe to the U.S., they really embraced us and the music and it was really nice to see that. It was a mature audience.”

Alessia Cara Opens Up About Pranking Coldplay On Tour!

Alessia Cara hugs her knees while posing for a photo at Radio Station Hits 97.3 on Wednesday (October 26) in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

The 20-year-old “Scars to Your Beautiful” singer recently shared the secrets to her songwriting success.

“Now that I’ve been [writing] for a while, I’m always thinking, ‘How can I turn this situation into a song?’” Alessia told The Tennessean. “It’s so awesome to be able to do that. I think we kind of overthink things sometimes, but you literally can write a song out of anything that you want to.”

“That’s the beauty of [songwriting], being able to take real-life experiences, and figuring out how to make them into an artistic story,” she went on. “With me, I’ve found that the concept [for a song] usually comes first: a phrase, a sentence or a word or something small that turns into something bigger.”

Alessia also revealed how it felt when she pranked Coldplay on her last day of touring with them!

“It was my idea,” she said, explaining how she put on a giant teddy bear costume and laid motionless on the floor until the band came over. “We were kind of doing it to each other in our own little crew. I was scaring a bunch of people in my band. Then I thought, ‘Well, since we’re on tour with Coldplay, I think it’d be a great idea or a horrible idea to try and scare them.’ I stayed in the costume for what felt like 45 minutes, and I actually got them, which was amazing. And I couldn’t see, either, so I didn’t even know that they were all there. It was pure luck.”
