The 26-year-old artist admits that this means a great responsibility, and that she thought about it a lot before accepting. “These shows give people opportunities, they have the power to fulfill dreams and change lives.

not sell the soul

For Camila, transmitting to her disciples the care for their artistic and psychological integrity is paramount. “So you are not selling your soul, people want to be famous and are willing to do whatever it takes to have more likes, for minutes of fame. For the new generations, that can be tempting.”

And along the same lines, he stressed: “You have to be true, work on being the most authentic version of you and it can be a slower path, and you may not have those two minutes of fame super fast, but that’s what it does. a long career and a community, a group of fans who understand you”.

If the Camila of today had told the Camila of ten years ago everything she has achieved, she would tell her: “don’t suck, you’re crazy, that doesn’t make sense”.

“In my first time singing in front of an audience, I saw little black dots because I thought I was going to faint, so to think that one day I would be in the position of coach, helping other artists who feel that they are going to faint, I don’t think so. I could have imagined,” he revealed.
