In March 1997, Camila Cabello was born in Cojimar, Cuba. When Camila was a little girl, her family regularly migrated between Havana(Cuba) and Mexico City. Her father was from Mexico and her mother was from Havana. When Camila was 5 years old, her mother, her sister Sofia, moved to Miami.
Her father joined the family after a year and a half cause of not getting a visa at that time. In 2008, Cabello gained citizenship in the US. To pursue a singing career, she left Miami Palmetto High School, when she was in the ninth grade. She later obtained her high school diploma.

Cabello first gained attention being a member of Fifth Harmony, a female group. In 2012, Cabello performed a solo act audition for the reality competition The X Factor. She sang Aretha Franklin’s song “Respect” on stage (Though, this episode never made it to the air due to licensing issues.) She was called back with four other female contestants after being ousted to create Fifth Harmony. After finishing third in the competition, they signed a joint agreement with Simon Cowell’s Syco Music and Epic Records.
In 2015, Fifth Harmony released “Reflection”, their first studio album. In the US, the album reached #5, while it peaked at #8 in Canada and New Zealand and #9 in Spain.
