9. Her hit single ‘Here’ is based on a true story.
Alessia wrote the song the day after attending a party when she was 16-years-old. In it she sings about a party she’s at, but wishes she wasn’t. “It’s a party song, but really it’s the complete opposite of a party song. It’s absolutely me; it shouts out the person in the corner of the party, looking around uncomfortably. I feel like this song narrates what the wallflower is thinking.” Picture: Getty
