Who is Billie Eilish
The singer's birthday comes just a few weeks after it was announced that she is the youngest artist in history to be nominated for the four most important categories of the Grammy Awards. On this occasion, the 18-year-old is nominated for six different awards, including Song of the Year, Recording of the Year, Album of the Year and Best New Artist.
The teenage phenomenon Billie Eilish began in 2016 with the publication of her song "Ocean Eyes", which went viral in one night. It was a task assigned to him by his dance teacher: to do a choreography with original music. For this, her brother, Finneas O'Connell, also a singer and songwriter, lent Billie a song he had composed for his band and therefore the song and the video. At that time, the singer was only 14 years old.

This year, she released her debut album titled When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? with songs composed by Billie and her brother as a whole team. She affirms that the process is that each one tries to say what they want to say so the result is not someone's songs.
Finneas O'Connell, her brother, is also her producer and accompanies her in her concerts and presentations. Although this was the year of release of her first studio album, it could be said that the singer's career has been at least three years since the publication of "Ocean Eyes", since, since then, Billie Eilish has not stopped releasing successes and collaborating with great artists of other genres such as rapper Vince Staples. In 2018 she was the opening act for Florence and The Machine. She has also done two different songs for the series produced by Selena Gomez, 13 reasons why.
