In the squall that has been 2020—amid pandemics and calamities—one song has stood out and turned into an anthem for hundreds of thousands everywhere. The track by up-and-coming artist Ava Caceres is entitled “Be Somebody’s” and has been making rounds all over the web this year.
To date, the song’s music video, which features the stunning celebrity figure Bella Thorne, has reached over 317,000 views and is still growing. The music video also features iconic director Stephen Wayne Mallett, who has worked with artists like Ne-Yo, Missy Elliot, and Lindsey Stirling. He was also instrumental in the development of the award-winning music film Jameson.
But front and center of the booming music video and track is the stunning vocal and charismatic performance of Ava Caceres, an artist, vocal director, and photographer. Her popularity has skyrocketed since the release of her hit single. “I hope ‘Be Somebody’s’ is a window into the soul for anyone who is in need of personal acceptance and independence,” shared Ava about her vision and aspirations for the song. “My biggest hope is that anyone, most especially those who are suffering from heartbreak, can latch on to this message of reflection and march forward knowing you can prevail regardless of your past.”
Ava Caceres always loved music from a young age. Since she was a little girl, she was decisive about two things: that she would embark on a journey of art creation and live a life that uplifts people. While in school, Ava dedicated her time and energy to learning as much as possible to develop her artistic expression. She joined school plays and sang in concerts. When Ava turned ten, she came upon a realization: that she could sing well. Since then, she has poured in her whole being into music. Soon after graduating high school, she got the chance to work hand in hand with Grammy-award winning producer Damon Sharpe, who helped her develop the masterpiece that would become “Be Somebody’s.”
The most important message that the song has to offer to the world is the importance of viewing even lost love as a gift. “When you have, you have a chance at experiencing being humbled with gratitude, the kind that reveals how beautiful it is to be so vulnerable as humans,” shares the breakthrough artist. At a young age, Ava Caceres has showcased exceptional maturity and creative finesse. At the rate that she is going, Ava looks to be on a trajectory for the stars and beyond.
Joining a deep passion for music and a sense of purpose, the Hispanic songwriter and artist looks to create music that will bring meaning and inspiration to others. Ava sees music as more of a mission than a hobby, and she has put all of herself into her commitment to creating music that speaks to people at the soul level. In the coming years, she hopes to create more successful songs and release multiple albums that will turn her into a household name across the music industry. With her intricate and masterful writing and powerful delivery, that reality seems to be closer than most think.
