Anyone who has not heard of Camilo Cabello has already reached the big hit of Havana already at the radio stations. A 21-year-old singer, born in Cuba and living in the US, will no doubt continue to speak. On Sunday night, in Bilbao, which for some glamorous hours turned into the world capital of pop, they were awarded the European MTV EMA awards and the Cuban-American singer was a convincing star of the evening. She has taken as many as four paintings from six categories: she was awarded for Best Song, Best Artist, Best Video and Best American Artist.
She spent the first years in Cojimar and Ciudad de Mexica, and at her age of seven the family moved to the United States. She received her first big opportunity in the X Factor show, where she sang the songs of Arethe Franklin, Amy Winehouse and Elton John. Together with four other talented girls, they united them into an exceptionally successful band Fifth Harmony, which Camila left for four years and started a solo career at age 19.
Three years ago, the music charts in Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States won the hit of Havana, which collected 1,400 million views on youtube a year, and former US President Barack Obama also heard it. In Bilbao, a young musician received another confirmation that the decision on a career was correct.
She is currently on a tour of 88 concerts for 222 days and will pay a portion of her earnings to the children of the victims of hurricane Maria, who hit the Caribbean last year, especially the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. She works with the non-governmental organization Save The Children, with whom she has recently gone to help children in Puerto Rico. She is also not politically passive, as she urged her followers to take part in the polls in the US.
Camilla is very active on social networks, in particular twitter, where she has 7.5 million followers. Among her role models is Madonna, she says she will never forget to meet her. One of her best friends is Ariana Grande, who still did not fully recover from her appearance in Manchester, where 22 people were killed by terrorists.
