2. Some of Cailee's biggest musical inspirations are Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Kelly Clarkson and Shawn Mendes. We heart them too, Cailee!

3. Just two weeks ago, Cailee premiered the uh-mazing music video for her single "Anchor." It's a total empowerment song about not letting anything or anyone hold you back. Cailee came up with the video concept herself – whoa!

4. Cailee writes her own music and draws ideas from everything around her. She has said that she loves watching people at the airport and visualizing their life stories. It's a totally rad pastime, tbh.

5. Cailee is the queen of covering pop songs. One of her most powerful covers is "Life of the Party," by Shawn Mendes. Be prepared for major goosebumps as you take a listen:

6. She has a new EP coming out June 17, called Overthinking. Just from the sound of the title, we predict we're going to relate to the songs on a deep level. We seriously cannot wait! ????
