Alessia Cara Makes TV Debut Playing ‘Here’ With the Roots on ‘Fallon’

Wearing a "Life of the Party" t-shirt, natch

The 18-year-old singer/songwriter Alessia Cara made her national TV debut last night on Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, playing her viral (and Beats 1-approved) hit “Here.” The Def Jam signee confidently performed her antisocial anthem, with the Roots as her backing band — wearing a “Life of the Party” t-shirt, why not. “You belong here!” Fallon proclaimed to her after the song was over. Unclear whether he was giving her life advice or stage directions, but either way, sounded about right. Watch the performance here.
