Alessia Cara shares powerful video for “Scars To Your Beautiful”, announces US tour — watch

In continued support of her debut album, last year's Know-It-All

    Alessia Cara has shared a new music video for “Scars To Your Beautiful”, a single off her 2015 breakthrough debut album, Know-It-All. Conceived by the Canadian singer herself, the clip sees various women — of all shapes, sizes, ages, and races, including cancer survivors and transgender people — recount their own stories about inner and outer beauty.

    In a statement to Cosmopolitan.com, where the visual premiered this morning, Cara said:

    “I wanted to do this kind of video for a very long time. Since we had this song — and since we knew it was going to be a single — I had this vision of many different cinematic shots of different kinds of people. I wanted all kinds of people — young, old, whatever their situation, whether it’s visible scars, non-visible scars — just a bunch of different women, and there are some men in there as well because it can reach out to guys too. But I wanted real shots of real people telling their stories, and showing the story through little vignettes.”

    Watch it up above.

    Additionally, Cara, who celebrates her 20th birthday today, has lined up a US trek dubbed her “Know-It-All Tour Part II.” The headlining tour kicks off in late September following supporting dates with Coldplay.
