The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
Alessia Cara launched her freshly debuted single “Sweet Dream” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on July 19 with a performance filmed in Niagara Falls.
In the live-filmed performance Alessia begins solo in a thematic bedroom setting, shortly to reveal to the audience that she’s in fact aboard Niagara City Cruises, Canada’s #1 tourism attraction, by stepping out through a curtain onto the lower deck. The camera follows Alessia as she emphatically delivers her vocal lines, walking a well-choreographed journey to the upper deck where she joins her band (legendary musical director, Dan Kanter) to bring the song home with the stunning illuminated Canadian Horseshoe Falls as the backdrop.

Showcased alongside “Sweet Dream”, a live performance of “Shapeshifter” filmed in Niagara Parks’ historic Oakes Garden Theatre was also shared to Stephen Colbert’s social channels.
