Ever since they found out that their voices complimented each other, they began to harmonize down the school hallways to some of their favourite songs. After creating their own YouTube channel and recording their first song, they were suddenly requested by a number of people to sing at various gigs, charity events, and school programs. Currently, they have around 8,000 views on their biggest viral hit “Marry You” by Bruno Mars, 24,000 total video views, 200 subscribers on their YouTube channel and over 200 likes on the Alissa & Lyz Facebook page. Both girls have now become songwriters and they are grateful for the opportunity to do what they love.
