The up-and-coming singer’s story is much like Justin Bieber‘s, only with Pharrell Williams as her admirer instead of Usher. Alyssa shared that Pharrell even tried contacting her high school in Texas to get a hold of her, saying, “They didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know who Pharrell was! They just thought it was some shady guy trying to get a hold of me!”
Her EP, out on iTunes and Amazon now, also includes a duet with Lifehouse‘s Jason Wade. He shared of the duet, “I just loved her voice. We sang both of the choruses out there together in the same mic-room, kind of an old-school way of recording.”
Alyssa‘s debut album, In Love Again For the First Time, is due out early 2011.
