Alyssa recently covered Jessie J’s Domino with Shane from Ready Revolution. It sounds absolutely fantastic, but it’s nothing new. Check it out!
Tarek Vaughters-Haywood, from JR Photography posted these new pictures on his page, from a recent photoshoot he did with Alyssa. She looks absolutely gorgeous, wearing a denim jacket and a maxi dark blue flowery skirt. I have also made some icons with them. Definitely check them out!
Looking for a co-owner
Posted on January 29, 2012 • Filed in Site
I have less and less time to update the site because of school and my personal life. It’s my last year of high school and I’m starting college next year, so I really have to focus on my grades. Also, I want to be able to design more on my design site and having this fansite has become a kind of a burden, as much as I adore Alyssa. I’m looking for a dedicated fan who could help me with the site, posting news, adding pictures and such. If I don’t find anyone soon, I don’t know when I’ll have to give it up…
So if you’ve got some time on your hands, love Alyssa and don’t want to see this site be abandoned, help me out and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Big pictures update
Due to my lack of consistence, I have a big pictures update today, where I added over 20 pictures of Alyssa’s latest show (taken by fans), personal pictures and more. Check them out!
I have also updated the music center with the chords for “Stay” and a link to a tutorial for “Soaking up the Sun”.
“Ours” and “Last Friday Night” covers
Alyssa most recently covered Taylor Swift’s latest single, Ours, on her main channel. The video features her two dogs, and she looks and sounds absolutely wonderful! She also posted a video of her and Diego Navaira from Ready Revolution covering Katy Perry’s Last Friday Night. Check them out!

I added two new personal pictures. One of them is of Alyssa and Anthony, and the other one is from a project that Alyssa is currently shooting. Alfredo Lomeli, which is an actor/singer/producer recently tweeted this: “Shooting with the lovely and VERY talented @alyssabernal.” Can we anticipate a new video?
Collaboration with Boyce Avenue?
Alyssa and Youtube band Boyce Avenue could possibly be in talks for a collaboration! They are a band that I absolutely adore and I’m really excited and looking forward to it. I know that every time they collaborate with someone, they cover two songs and they usually go on their collaboration album.
So, who else is as excited as me for this possible collaboration and what songs would you like them to cover?
“Q & A with YouTube Sensation Alyssa Bernal”
Posted on January 14, 2012 • Filed in Interviews
College Life Styles recently did an interview with Alyssa. Check it out!
Who knew a MySpace message could change a person’s life? Well just ask Alyssa Bernal, who was contacted by N.E.R.D. front man Pharrell Williams, who saw her singing talents on YouTube. One year later the Texas teenager was signed to Star Trak Entertainment and recording her first album. When Alyssa was younger she used to be shy to sing in front of others, now with over five million views on signing covers from Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Adele, it’s no question that Alyssa brings new light and energy to the pop scene. The songs on her album, Love Hangover, “are about long-distance love, missing home, and the tone is very easy-going”, says Alyssa. College Lifestyles had the opportunity to ask Alyssa a few questions, check them out here!
CL: What type of impact has social media (Youtube, Twitter, Facebook) had on your career and how you connect with your fans?
AB: Social media has made it possible for me to keep my fans updated with whatever is going on with my career. Thanks to social media I am able to figure out where most of my fan base is located so that I can go on a tour there and have a successful outcome.
CL: How would you describe your fashion style? Do you follow any trends?
AB: I lean towards boho looking clothes. Vanessa Hudgens has an amazing sense of fashion.
CL: You receive a lot of your views when you cover songs from hit artists. Who is your dream person to collaborate with?
AB: I would love to co-write a song with Taylor Swift. I’m a huge fan of her music and I love that we’re the same age and play guitar and are songwriters.
CL: We love your video “Cali Cali Cali”! what is your typical day like on a video shoot?
AB: Thanks! Basically, lots of makeup touch-ups and taking direction from the director. It also involves a little bit of acting.
CL: Do you have any advice for young singers/songwriters who desire to break into the industry?
AB: Never try and be like someone else. And social media does not hurt to try. And write your own songs!
CL: Do you have any upcoming projects you would like to share with College Lifestyles?
AB: I’m getting ready to go to Miami to record my second album. So excited about that!
“I Won’t Give Up” cover
