The country singer and songwriter CALLISTA CLARK has just released her debut single called “It’s Cause I Am”. The song, co-written by Clark and directed by Audrey Ellis Fox, has over 65 million views on Facebook and six million on YouTube. The single is a great representation of the girl next door’s story. The video is a great introduction to her voice and style. It has been viewed over 1.5 million times on TikTok.
Clark, a Georgia native, has been creating viral videos for years. She grew up in Zebulon, Georgia, and began singing at an early age. She was already playing various instruments and writing poetry by the age of twelve. Her mother encouraged her to put songs to her poems, which she did. She began singing original versions of classic hits songs at the age of eleven. One of her videos, a version of “Let It Be,” by the Beatles, has gained over 100,000 views.
In 2013, she posted a video of herself singing “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” on her YouTube channel. Scooter Braun, who is the famous manager of Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, saw the video and was intrigued. Braun introduced Clark to Big Machine Label Group CEO Scott Borchetta. She was quickly signed by the label and became one of the most popular pop stars in the world.
