Who is Camila Cabello?
At the age of 25, Camila Cabello was born in Havana, Cuba, and since her adolescence she has been participating in a musical group on a reality show. Before moving to Miami, in the United States, and becoming successful, Cabello lived in Mexico. Afterwards, she participated in X Factor USA, where she was selected to form the group Fifth Harmony.
Soon after, she announced that she would pursue her solo career. The artist quickly gained visibility and many fans around the world, with four pop singles in partnership with other international musicians: “I Know What You Did Last Summer”, with Shaw Mendes and “Bad Things”, with Machine Gun Kelly and with the solo single “Havana”, which exploded on radio in September 2017.
At the time, Camilla became the third female artist in history to have her first song from the album and record hit the top positions in the US simultaneously.
The Champions League final will be broadcast in more than 200 countries, generating an audience of between 380 and 400 million people worldwide. With this, Cabello will follow in the footsteps of other musical superstars, such as Dua Lipa, Black Eyed Peas and Marshmello, who starred in these shows in previous editions of the Champions League final.
