(Radio.com) Canadian singer Alessia Cara only burst on the scene in late 2015, but already she's made waves for her strong alto voice and the empowering messages contained in her music.

Last Thursday (July 21), she borrowed from another band's important message when she takes the stage to perform U2's "One" on ABC's Greatest Hits.

The six-week event has been showcasing some of music's greatest hits from different decades. Last Thursday marked the 1990-1995 round, and Cara brought her vocal runs and at-times gravelly voice to the moving song that preaches love over hate. Seal, Boyz II Men, Little Big Town, Bonnie Raitt and more were on hand to perform other big hits from that time period. Seal did "Kiss From a Rose" while Little Big Town covered Oasis' "Wonderwall."

The song choice for the young singer doesn't seem accidental. Her latest song "Scars to Your Beautiful" examines different kinds of beauty to offer listeners an uplifting message about accepting and loving yourself. Watch her bring her unique touch to "One" here.
