Canadian Alessia Cara won the coveted Grammy award for best new artist Sunday in a category of strong contenders that included Khalid and SZA.
In her acceptance speech, the Brampton, Ont.-born singer encouraged people to “support real music and real artists.”
“Everyone deserves the same shot,” she said on stage. “And that goes for everyone — not just those in the industry.”
Earlier, Lady Gaga was among the stars sporting a white rose on the Grammy Awards red carpet to support the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements.
Sam Smith, Lisa Loeb, Sting and host James Corden were also spotted wearing the flower to show support for the fight against sexual misconduct.
