The music industry regularly welcomes thousands of stars every year, and amid 2020’s roster of breakthrough talent, Hispanic singer and songwriter Ava Caceres stands out. With the vocal workings of a seasoned performer and her intricately crafted songs, she takes the world by storm with her hit single “Be Somebody’s” and charismatic performance.
Ava first made rounds on social media after releasing her music video, which features celebrity actress, singer, and model Bella Thorne. Taking the director’s seat for the film work was industry legend Stephen Wayne Mallet. His roster of collaborations includes work with heavy hitters like Ne-Yo, Missy Elliot, and Lindsey Stirling. The director also took leadership in the development of the award-winning music flick Jameson. To date, the music video has gathered over 317,000 streams on YouTube.
Early on in life, Ava Caceres discovered her innate talent and passion for music. Even at a young age, she made it her goal to become a professional artist and share her music with the world. By doing so, Ava hopes to touch the hearts of many and spread messages that matter.
On top of her passion for music, Ava is an avid fan of theatre and acting. She would participate in school plays while studying, which helped her develop her creative side and became a training ground for her to develop her style and voice. At the age of ten, people around her started to realize how refined her singing voice was. Ava dedicated herself for many years to create a sound that now resonates in the hearts of hundreds of thousands everywhere.
The artist and writer takes after her early influences, Barbra Streisand and Bette Midler, who were also the songwriter’s inspiration when writing “Be Somebody’s.” After graduating high school, Ava Caceres would brush shoulders with award-winning producers Damon Sharpe and Eric Sanicola, who would help her record and publish her first single. “This song was born out of a time period that was emotionally difficult,” Ava shares about her breakthrough hit, “and in the spirit of becoming a process of healing, I thought of the strength that these artists I looked up to held and I knew that I needed to carry the same mindset.”
In the days following, Ava Caceres hopes to refine and record more of her original music. Following up on a hit as strong as “Be Somebody’s” is not an easy feat. Still, with the powerful vocal talent and heartfelt writing that the nineteen-year-old rising star has exhibited, fans can be guaranteed that there’s plenty more on the way.
Today, Ava joins her deep sense of passion for music and relentless pursuit of meaning. She hopes not just to gain fame or fortune from her craft, but also influence and transformation. To the singer, music has moved past being another hobby. It is now a calling. And it’s a calling that she intends to pour all her heart and effort into in the coming years. Ava Caceres already has it in mind to create multiple albums in the next five years. And if the output is even but a fraction of “Be Somebody’s,” it’s likely that we’re witnessing the rise of another all-time musical great.
