Singer Camila Cabello was born Karla Camila Cabello Estrabao, in Havana, Cuba, the daughter of Sinuhe and Alejandro Cabello. Her family shuttled back and forth between Havana and Mexico until Cabello was 5, when they settled in Miami. In 2012 she auditioned for the show ``The X Factor.'' Though she was eliminated during the so-called bootcamp round, she and four other female contestants were called back to form a girl group called Fifth Harmony to continue in the competition. Though they did not win -- they finished third - they were offered a contract with Syco Music (owned by Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid's label Epic Records), and released a single titled "Better Together" in 2013. Fifth Harmony released albums titled "Reflection" (2015) and "7/27" (2016) before Cabello announced her departure from the group in December 2016 to launch a solo career. Cabello has collaborated with a number of musicians, including Shawn Mendes, Machine Gun Kelly, Pitbull and Norwegian DJ Cashmere Cat, and was listed as one of Time's 25 Most Influential Teens of 2016. Cabello also worked with Save the Children on a limited-edition T-shirt to help raise awareness of issues surrounding equal access to education, health care and opportunities to succeed for girls. She's also partnered with the Children's Health Fund, which provides healthcare to low-income children. Her first solo album is titled "The Hurting, the Healing, the Loving," with the lead single debuting on May 19, 2017.
