Lost her Youtube… again
Alyssa’s Youtube has been terminated, for a second time. Has it been hacked again? Honestly, it makes me mad. She has been known through Youtube, and without it, we wouldn’t have her. So, for us, fans of Alyssa, it’s truly some bad news. She also said on her Tumblr, “Forget YT”. I hope that whether she has her channel or not, she’ll still continue sharing music and videos of her singing. And I’ll never stop supporting her either.
On a brighter note, for those who haven’t bought her album, Love Hangover, you can listen to this album preview a fan made. Also, I’m currently searching for someone who has bought the album and could donate the digital booklet so I could add the pictures to the gallery.
“Stay” acoustic performance
Performing an acoustic version of Stay for you guys. Personally, my favorite song from the album : ) This was my first cowrite of the album so it has great meaning! It’s based on a book too : ) Dont forget to grab your copy of Love Hangover!
Alyssa posted a new video of her and Lyle performing an acoustic version of “Stay”, which is her favorite track of the album (and also mine). Can we hope for a third single? Enjoy!
New photos and some news…
I have added a few personal pictures and a photoshoot pic. Also, for those who live near San Antonio, don’t miss tomorrow’s show, where Alyssa is opening for Ready Revolution, that’s a band that includes Shane and Diego, from her “Pumped Up Kicks” cover. Many are talking about it on Twitter, so I bet it’s gonna be fantastic.
Next, some relationship alert! Apparently, Alyssa is kind of dating someone. On her Tumblr, she tells:
Lot’s has been happening. I think I’m dating someone… I don’t want a relationship but gaahhh he’s suchhh a nice guy; and ambitious! And he’s an actor. He came out on The Walking Dead and he just got casted in a new movie with Paul Walker and Mila Kunis…as a leading roll (sic)!!! lol so idk. I’m pretty confused. Unexpected feelings… everywhere.
We draw to conclusions that the guy is Anthony Guajardo, who says, “I used to hang with Sharkboy but more recently I battled rednecks and zombies with the Vatos on The Walking Dead.” Plus, he recently exchanged some Tweets with Lyss and posted some pictures (which are in the gallery) that look adorable! I’m honestly really happy for her and I hope he’s far from what she’s been through. Tell us what you think about her new relationship!
“Pumped Up Kicks” cover
Alyssa’s cover of Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks” is now back! Many of you have probably seen it already, but it was taken down when her Youtube got hacked. Check it out!
New and old random videos
I wandered around Youtube and found a few interesting videos that I wanted to show you. First, an interview that Lyss posted with Pharrell with old footage of performances, cover videos, music videos… They talk about what they thought about each other, “Love Hangover”, “Soaking up the Sun” and more. Second, an video interview with ThatRaw.com. Remember this post? Well, here’s the video that was supposed to go with it. And finally, two cover videos. One of them is “Someone Like You” by Adele, with her good friend Emily Yanez. The other one is a live version of “How To Love” by Lil Wayne from her show at Sam’s Burger Joint, last October. Enjoy them!
By the way, Alyssa’s Youtube is back. It has been hacked, but I guess everything’s fine now (except that the “Pumped Up Kicks” video has been removed…)
“Price Tag” cover
On her second channel, Alyssa posted an awesome audio file of her covering Jessie J’s single, Price Tag. I would have liked a video too, but I guess she didn’t feel like it… Anyway, enjoy as much as I did!
New pictures and icons added
I have added a few pictures, including personal ones, Twitter pictures and some photoshoot updates. Also, I’ve uploaded more than 40 icons of personal pictures and photoshoots. Enjoy them all!
Lots of news!
I have a lot of news for you today. First, for those are aren’t from the United States and wanted to buy Alyssa’s album, Love Hangover, you can do it on her official website.
Second, Friday, there will be a release party for the album at Klusoz, so for those you can, don’t miss it!
Third, you can now choose for your favorite picture to be her next official Facebook picture between two gorgeous pictures. The first one is already in the gallery, and I’ll be looking for the second one (personally, I think it’s maybe a photo from her shoot with Emily Yanez, but I’m not sure). You can click below to get to the Facebook page to do so.
Fourth, and finally, Ryan Seacrest (okay, one of his authors) talked about Alyssa’s cover of “It Will Rain” by Bruno Mars, calling it “dreamy”. Read it below!
Bruno Mars’ ‘It Will Rain’ Gets A Dreamy Makeover From YouTube Starlet Alyssa Bernal [VIDEO]
Twilight’s Breaking Dawn- Part 1 fever is in full effect this week onto YouTube. The movie’s signature song, Bruno Mars’, It Will Rain, is the song to cover. YouTube starlet, Alyssa Bernal, lends her vocals in an acoustic version for the smash hit!
Alyssa, who is signed to Pharrell Williams‘ music label (Star Trak), has been covering the hottest tracks for over four years. The YouTube veteran has over 500,000 subscribers and her guitar covers have reached over a million views.
The singer/songwriter doesn’t disappoint her fans with this Bruno cover. The part that gets us every time is when she starts singing the “woooo.” If you close your eyes, you can picture Edward and Bella dancing in the forest. Okay, maybe that’s just us.
“Alyssa Bernal’s ‘Love Hangover’ is a Potential Hit Train”
Posted on November 17, 2011 • Filed in Article
Here’s another album review from Jason Tanmore of Zoiks! Okline.
Alyssa Bernal brings an old school R&B sound with a current pop melody on her debut album, “Love Hangover.” The album, which drops Tuesday, November 15, 2011, combines the vocal opulence of Brandy and Monica.
Like the two 90s R&B divas, Bernal shows a great maturity in her voice well beyond her years. Not too long ago, the young artist was in high school when producer Pharrell Williams saw her videos on YouTube.
Her musicianship at such a young age impressed Williams to a point he signed her to his label. Since being discovered, the “Cali Cali Cali,” singer has toured with Lifehouse and has gained a wealth of experience in the industry. “Love Hangover” is the beneficiary of that experience. The album consists of 12 well produced tracks that reinforce Williams’ decision to take her under his wing.
“Soaking Up the Sun” and “Hold Me Tight,” a duet with Lifehouse front man Jason Wade, lead the potential hit train with the aforementioned “Cali Cali Cali” starting the ride as the album’s first single.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that my favorite song on “Love Hangover” is “Everyone Knows Jason.” The song indicates Bernal’s quest to gain “Jason’s” attention by possibly losing weight or changing her hair. Of course, “Jason” in this case is not me but advice to Bernal, you look just fine.
Alyssa Bernal is a rising star and “Love Hangover” is just the beginning of her promising career. If you’re a fan of pop music with a hint of R&B, this album may be for you.
“Love Hangover” reviews

Album Review: Alyssa Bernal Has Got Love Songs For Days
Maturity changes people’s music tastes. Around the tender teenage years, you get the love struck teens who prefer to remain loyal ‘N SYNC fans or those who drift the way of Dashboard Confessional. This transition takes place in the 90s, but the same goes for the 21st Century youngins who stick with Bieber and those who move to Daughtry. If you take the darker and at times, more distributed route, the hidden Bieber or ‘N SYNC fan within you will still expose itself every so often. You shouldn’t be embarrassed by this disclosure, but if you are well passed the midlife crisis age, maybe you should listen to Selena Gomez tunes in private.
The latest artist to be placed in the teen music category is Alyssa Bernal. If you were a JoJo fan in the early 2000s, Bernal will be your newest guilty pleasure. The San Antonio, Texas native, who was born in 1989, has garnered over 12 million Channel Views on YouTube with her covers from such artists as Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears. Her YouTube success sealed the deal with multi-platinum selling artist and producer, Pharrell Williams and her label, Star Trek. Following her self-titled EP release in October 2010, Bernal dropped her debut album, “Love Hangover” on November 15th via Star Trek.
The 13 track album opens up with the lead tune, “The Boy”. You shouldn’t think too hard as to what the meaning of the song is, but instead focus on Bernal’s vocal chops, which are beautifully innocent. The youthful sound of her voice complements the lyrical nature of the song and gives listeners the room to explore their own individual love woes within the track. Yes, Bernal isn’t singing about social or political injustices in the world, but that is why “The Boy” works.
As the album continues, Bernal sheds the light brighter on both her relatable side and talented side. The slower paced track, “Easy”, showcases her ability to tap into a higher register, while maintaining vocal strength. You should think of High School Musical’s Gabriella singing “When There Was Me And You”, when listening to this track. That last statement was a hint to you, Disney. Bernal is worthy of her own “Wizards Of Waverly Place”.
She spices up the track listing of “Love Hangover” with two duets. “One Of Us Gotta Leave” features Pharrell and takes the PG rated album to a possible PG 13 level. Surprisingly, Bernal and Pharrell have similar vocal pitches and ranges, which strengthen the fluidity of the song. The second duet, “Hold Me Tight”, tones down the tempo considerably from that of “One Of Us Gotta Leave”. Jason Wade chimes in on this tune and his rugged sound evokes a rawness that heightens the emotions Bernal’s voice exudes. “Hold Me Tight” is the ultimate romance song for the Twihards out there.
With the “subtle” teenage name drops above, it should become quite clear that Alyssa Bernal has a demographic. “Love Hangover” appeals to that age group, both lyrically and instrumentally. Keeping the beats simple and the words catchy is exactly what works for her market. In no way meant as an insult, but Alyssa Bernal has much more talent within and her debut album is just the beginning.
Alyssa Bernal ‘Love Hangover’ effortlessly fun (REVIEW)
Cute. Fun. Sunny.
The above words could be used to describe YouTube star Alyssa Bernal’s personality as well as her debut digital release, Love Hangover, available today — November 15. The Texas native first garnered the interest of millions on YouTube, but has most recently made a fan of industry heavyweights like Pharrell Williams, Martin Terefe and Jason Wade (Lifehouse) all of which contributed on Love Hangover.
Love Hangover is highlighted by the new single “Soaking Up The Sun”, “Cali Cali Cali” and “Hold Me Tight”, a wonderful duet with Wade (Bernal previously toured with Lifehouse); yet all 12 tracks of the digital release are noteworthy.
What makes the debut special, and will ultimately make Bernal a superstar, is the way the talented singer effortlessly makes fun, catchy tunes in an era where pop music simply tries too hard. You won’t get unnecessary SFXs and autotune. No ridiculous music videos. Just straight, simple pop that is all about the music.
