Watch Willa Amai perform TRAMPLED FLOWERS on ELLEN

12:23 AM



Singer songwriter Willa Amai performed her debut single "Trampled Flowers," on ELLEN.

This is the rising star's second national TV performance this month; she made her national TV debut on the Today Show on May 14.

At just 15-years-old, Willa has already revealed herself as an artist of extraordinary depth, with Nylon saying this is "just the beginning of what is sure to be a long ascent to stardom" for the rising singer/songwriter.

The L.A. native first captivated audiences in 2017 with her stripped-back and stunning cover of Daft Punk's "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger," (a track that's amassed over 6 million YouTube views and more than a million streams following its feature in a Clio Award-winning TV spot for QuickBooks).

Also that year, her song "Scars" was featured on the compilation Served Like a Girl: Music from and Inspired by the Documentary Film.

Most recently, Willa won acclaim for her breathtaking rendition of Dolly Parton's "Here You Come Again" (recorded with Dolly herself and featured on the soundtrack for the Netflix film Dumplin'), with Esquire praising the duet as "truly exceptional" and "one of the few moments that an accompanying voice is able to keep up with Parton's" and Refinery29 hailing their interaction as "a passing of the torch."

Dolly recently took to social media to share words of admiration for the rising star.

"Trampled Flowers" is Willa's first official release since signing to "We Are Hear," the label/publishing/management company co-founded by multi-platinum producers Linda Perry and Kerry Brown.

The song is accompanied by a beautifully cinematic video directed by esteemed filmmaker Mark Romanek (Beyoncé, Madonna, Taylor Swift).

The video captures the experience of a first heartbreak and how it can stay with you even when you grow to love someone new.

"Trampled Flowers" will be featured on Willa's forthcoming full-length debut album, produced by Linda Perry.
