MONTEVALLO – Popular artists including Grammy award-winning singer Alessia Cara will perform live in Montevallo in August.
Cara, Echosmith, AJ Mitchell and Stephen Puth are set to perform in 103.7 The Q’s Just Show Up Show, presented by Dr. Bobby F.

“We’re so excited to finally announce this awesome event,” the city’s Facebook post read. “Many cool things to come.”
Ontario native Cara won Best New Artist at the 2018 Grammy Awards. She received four JUNO Award nominations in 2016, including a win for Breakthrough Artist of the Year; a tour with Coldplay; a performance with Taylor Swift after which Taylor proclaimed herself an Alessia fan; the cover of Billboard Magazine’s Grammy issue; and a 2016 AMA nomination for New Artist of the Year.
