Alyssa Brianne Bernal, also known as hchsknights08 on Youtube was born and raised at San Antonio, Texas on December 22, 1989. Her mom, Kathy, is Caucasian and her dad is Hispanic. She also has a lot of other origins, including Cherokee, German and Arabian. Plus, she has an older brother, Andy. She chose hchsknights08 as her screen name, because hchsknights is the name of her cheerleading team, back at her high school, Holy Cross High School in San Antonio, and she said, “If I only knew that this will be big then I should’ve chose Alyssa Bernal or something.” She attracts every person who visits her channel everyday.

Teens admire her so much because she has a talent to share and a really kind heart. On October 2008, American Music Group gave her a deal. She began recording her new single, “Never Woulda,” early January 2009.

Around 2010, she was discovered by Pharell Williams, from Star Trak/Interscope. About three months later, when they finally found and contacted her, she flew to London to record her first album, produced by Martin Terefe. On 24th August 2010, she released the single “Cali, Cali, Cali”, avaliable for purchase on iTunes!
