Sarah Silva On Her New Single “Somebody Like Me,” Life During COVID-19, Future Plans & More

Singer Sarah Silva’s professional journey truly began after taking 2nd place in the Mexican version of American Idol, La Academia Kids, at only 11 years old. This experience immersed her in six months of extensive training in singing, dancing and acting with some of the best teachers in the industry. After her participation in La Academia Kids she was cast as the namesake character in the theater play Miranda y Sus Dos Papas, where she was acclaimed for her talent as a musical theater actress.

With more than 800,000 social media followers to speak of, Sarah Silva is household name in South and Central America. The bilingual singer has teamed up with producer A-dubb for her upcoming album, as set for a September 2020 release via Black Rabbit Entertainment. Inspired by artists like Rosalía with hints of Becky G, Silva is ready to make a splash in the United States — where she was born but has not yet toured extensively — with her own unique brand of Latin pop music.

Last week, Silva released “Somebody Like Me” from that upcoming album. In her own words, “Somebody Like Me” is about “knowing that you are exactly what a certain someone needs. Their past experiences didn’t work out, but now they don’t need to look anymore because you’re here for them. It’s also about feeling empowered with yourself, feeling so confident that you know you can do anything.” It is indeed a strong follow-up to her last single, “False Illusions,” as released in late 2019.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Sarah Silva via Zoom on June 3, 2020 about her past, present and future. More on Silva can be found online by visiting her website,
