Download “Imagination” for free!
Posted on November 4, 2011 • Filed in Music
If you go on Alyssa’s official site, you can get a free download of a new song called “Imagination”. You just have to share it on Facebook or Twitter, give your email and wait for it! I still haven’t received it yet, but I guess it’ll take some time. Lyss describes it as a “groovy, psychedelic song” and I can’t wait for it!

Alyssa starred in a short movie with his friends Saagar and Saamir Shaikh. It’s pretty funny and Lyss is a quite good actress! Check it out!
Infos on first album “Love Hangover”
I have a few news and videos for you. First, Alyssa’s first album, that was named “In Love Again For The First Time” has now changed to Love Hangover. Personally, I prefer this new name, it’s shorter and as sweet. Also, it will be available digitally on November 15th, 2011, as announced and in physical copies a little bit later at stores like Wal-Mart and more. Second, Tarek Haywood-Vaughters, from JR Photography, with whom Alyssa has worked quite often, posted on his Facebook account that his pictures will be used for the cover. So, can we expect a new photoshoot or is it something we’ve seen before? Third, she will be promoting it in Los Angeles, as I have told you, very soon and has already started her local promotion at places like San Antonio Living.
Below are two videos in which she talks about her album release and covers Rihanna’s We Found Love (a song that she currently loves, according to her Tumblr) and where she sings Soaking up the Sun with Lyle at SA Living. She looks absolutely stunning in both of them. Enjoy!
Promoting “In Love Again For The First Time”
Posted on October 31, 2011 • Filed in News/Rumors
On her Tumblr, Alyssa announced that her first album, In Love Again For The First Time would officially come out on November 25th, 2011 instead of November 1st, as previously said. We’re sad that it’s being postponed, but hopefully, it’ll be the last time! Also, she answered a fan by saying that she will be promoting it in Los Angeles with a “huge press run”. We really can’t wait!
NOVEMBER 15th!! My album drops.
Final date. I promise. hahaha. I will be making a video for YouTube announcing it. SAVE THE DATE!
Yes I have a huge press run coming up in LA. So very excited.
I’ve just added 7 new pictures, including 5 photoshoot pictures, all by the very talented Emily Yanez! Actually, there’s one of them that I’m not sure, but I put it in there anyway. If you could tell me the photographer, it’d be great! Two of them are from a new shoot and the other ones are just updates. I have also added two personal pictures. Alyssa really looks gorgeous on all of them. Enjoy!
Pharrell talks about Alyssa
Posted on October 27, 2011 • Filed in Videos
Pharrell Williams, who’s Alyssa’s producer, talked about her in this video. It starts at around 1:00, it’s really nice of him to say all those things and we can see why Lyss seems to like him so much! He’s just so sweet!
Soaking up the Sun cover/tutorial
A fan on Youtube, Veronvivian, posted this video (that Alyssa tweeted), teaching all of us how to play Soaking up the Sun. It’s honestly quite accurate, but there’s no bridge in it. If you can figure it out, it’d be awesome if you could tell her or me. I’ll put the chords as soon as possible in the music network for all of you. Enjoy!
“Alyssa Bernal, YouTube sensation, soaks up the sun”
Even if Soaking up the Sun has been out for more than 3 weeks, Liz Kelly Nelson, from Zap2it, still talked(wrote) about it! She presented the single and did a new interview with Alyssa, which was more casual than her usual “professional/career driven” interviews. She talks about her best friend Felicia, Matthew Gray Gubler, and her first kiss. Check it out!
Alyssa Bernal’s path to pop stardom has been a little unusual, but hardly unheard of. Like Justin Bieber, she got her start uploading covers of songs to YouTube, where’s she’s now one of the top 30 most-subscribed to musicians on the video-sharing site.
Last week, Alyssa released the single “Soaking Up the Sun” from her new self-titled EP. We caught up with Alyssa and she was kind enough to answer our Celeb Slam Book questions. Read on to find out more about the 22-year-old singer/songwriter.
Tell us one thing the general public doesn’t know about you:
I was a competitive cheerleader for 11 years.

Wake up, brush teeth, shower etc, check my email, play with my dogs, try and get it a little cardio in, If I’m not too lazy at the moment. Then maybe play around on my guitar and get inspired to write a song. Run some errands. Have a random jam session and photo shoot just for fun. Then do some gigs if I have any that evening. Nothing too crazy yet!
If you had to choose another career, what would you be?
Probably something in fashion. Like, designing clothes. Or maybe even a small business; like a bookstore or coffee shop!
If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?
Vegas! With friends : )
Who was your first kiss? Was it any good?

Soaking up the Sun live at BETA Studios
Here’s a beautiful video of Alyssa singing Soaking up the Sun, live and acoustic with Lyle at BETA Records Studios. She sounds and looks amazing. Check it out!
Alyssa Bernal visits the BETA Records Studios and performs her newest hit “Soaking Up the Sun” – a great follow-up to her smash Cali Cali Cali.
I added 7 new pictures of Alyssa, including 2 photoshoot pictures (I guess, since they’re in quite good quality), personal and Twitter pictures. She looks adorable on all of them, but the photoshoots ones are my favorites. Enjoy!
