Camila Cabello (Camila Cabello)
Camila won the hearts of her fans not only with her beautiful voice and gorgeous appearance, but also with her success story. For many, it has become the embodiment of such concepts as "American Dream" and "self-made person". On this page we will tell you what path she went through before you stand on a par with Beyonce, Britney Spears. Has she been able to remain as positive and motivating, despite all the dirt of popularity.
In her interviews, Camila Cabello speaks very positively about her childhood. This is surprising, because what can be good in childhood, spent in the commercial fishing village of Kohimar, near Havana. However, since birth, March 3, 1997, she was able to meet with one of the greatest writers in the world. The village of Kokhimar would be no different from the others if it were not for the fact that Ernest Hemingway lived and worked here. Therefore, young Camila from the earliest years learned to read, and became a fan of his work. And although she rarely managed to sit in the writer's favorite cafe, she always carried his books with her. They were the ones who saved the girl from boredom in constant travels from Cuba to Mexico and back. The reason for traveling was utterly simple - money. Her mother was from Cuba, and her father was from Mexico, so they had to constantly look for work in these countries.
Parents went on trips to work until Camille was 6 years old. It was at this age that she and her mother emigrated to the United States. This period of his life Camila Cabello calls the most difficult. My father had to work around the clock to constantly send money to his family, and he could only come to them after a year and a half. In addition, Camila did not know English at all, therefore, communication with her peers was replaced by TV shows, which would play a significant role in her career. With their help, she was able to learn the language, after which the girl was sent to Miami Palmetto High School.
Already at school, everyone noticed her delightful voice, especially when she sang. And her Cuban-Mexican accent added charm and personality. And although Camila was a very shy girl and was afraid to speak to the public, the requests from classmates to sing at school performances helped overcome their fears.
In the 7th grade, Camila Cabello begins to practice vocal, which completely captures her for the next few years. And in grade 9, she decides to leave school and devote all her time to rehearsals and music.
After moving to the United States, the girl watched TV for days on end, especially musical programs and talent shows. Many years passed, and the adaptation of the British project X-Factor appeared in America. This project made it possible for absolutely anyone who wanted to go on stage, hit the judges with his voice, and earn money and a contract with a recording studio. Camila decided that this was her chance, but she missed the first season of the show. As she later admitted in an interview, “I got sick 2 days before the start of the casting. It was not a very serious disease, but doctors prescribed a hard bed rest. My mother and I discussed it and decided that health is more important, and that I will still have a chance to show myself next season. ”
But the second season for the girl started badly. Her performance could not be broadcast due to copyright, so she was refused at first. But then, when all the problems were eliminated, they invited me back to the show. Such as it turned out to be several, and the jury decided to unite them into one group, which would soon be called "Fifth Harmony" ("The Fifth Harmony"). They entered the top three of the show, and signed a contract with Syco Music and Evil Records. The group has released several albums, and they hit the top ten in the charts of Britain, USA, Canada.
