A musical reality show was the springboard that launched Camila Hair. The circle closes and now it is the Cuban-American singer who plays the role of audition jury in The Voicethe successful singing competition that celebrates its 22nd season on the screen of Universal+.
Every week, the platform premieres new episodes of the contest, about which the young artist spoke from New York with the Latin American press through a continental conference. In the talk, the interpreter who shares the role of the jury with Gwen Stefani, John Legend and Blake Shelton listed a series of tips dedicated to those who take their first steps in music.
The two-time Latin Grammy-winning artist confessed that she was “honored and moved” by her appointment as coach on the show. “It’s a tremendous responsibility,” said the young woman whose life changed after her participation in the reality show The X factor. “These shows give real people a chance to fulfill their dreams,” he noted.
“I think I have a lot to contribute from my experience of having started in a show like this. Someone may be technically excellent, and that makes you push the button. [para su continuidad en el concurso televisivo]but there may be someone who, although technically not polished, may have a tone, something magical, or be someone who chose to do a cover with a completely unexpected and different look, and that reveals or not a creative person, with an original perspective”, he mentioned.
In his words, “talent and passion for music” are the basis of any professional career. The interpreter of “Miss” said that the members of her team in the contest have her “WhatsApp number” and said that she walks by her side in the experience with the aim that the artists can enhance “the most authentic version of themselves themselves”.
What advice would you give to those who are new to music in exhibition spaces such as television? “You have to guard against things that are tempting to the ego,” she remarked. And she shared his personal experience with fame: “The negative and positive comments are the same for me, none of it is good. Being too aware of it is dangerous, you must be in the bubble of living your life and surround yourself with people with a passion for music, with pure passions. Do not spend so much time in the ‘social media’. I don’t see the comments because that takes away the focus of creating and being an artist. It is more productive to write lyrics than to be aware of the ‘like’ or to be reading what people say about me. It’s not healthy for any person, for our brains, to have so many opinions about us all the time. It’s a distraction,” she reflected.
At 25, the singer is clear about the message she would like to convey to future generations in music. On this, she insisted: “We live in a culture in which people want to be famous and are willing to do whatever it takes to have more ‘likes’ or minutes of fame, but it is important to talk about integrity. At the end of the day, you have to be true to yourself and work for the most authentic version of yourself. It may be a slower road, but you shouldn’t sell your soul for two seconds of fame.”
The artist also shared the “fun” behind the scenes of the recordings in The Voice. “It’s like what you see on TV but multiplied by ten: we laugh too much. After eating lunch at five o’clock in the evening the real party starts backstage,” she said humorously.
In the exercise of imagining auditioning again for a contest, Cabello explained that she would choose to cover some classic from the 80s, “in a completely different bet – if you have a very feminine and high voice, you can sing a song by a male artist and that’s it. your version will be different”, he said, or a song from the Latin American songbook, such as “Cold, cold”, by Juan Luis Guerra. “The most important thing is to be original,” she remarked.
The interpreter said that her “godfathers” in music have been figures like Alejandro Sanz or Ed Sheeran -from whom he receives “advice”- and announced that he is currently collaborating with a Latin American music star for an upcoming premiere. Finally, she expressed her desire to tour these lands again. “I love you so much. Last month I was with Coldplay in Chile, Peru, Colombia and Brazil, and I want to say thank you for all the love you gave me. I’m excited to be back.”
