Us the Duo


Singer-songwriters Carissa and Michael Alvarado first met when they were both extras on the set of a music video shoot, fell in love instantly and went on to marry and perform together as the gentle, acoustic pop pairing Us The Duo. They started out by covering songs by Rihanna, Linkin' Park and Miley Cyrus, posting them to YouTube and Vine and steadily built up a social media following of millions that pushed their self-released album into the top 20 of the Billboard Heatseeker Chart and landed them slots on national TV shows such as Good Morning America and The Today Show. One viral video showed them on their wedding day singing their vows to one another, and they turned the moment into the single No Matter Where You Are, which was then used in the animated movie The Book Of Life. It all led to a deal with Republic Records and the recording of their debut album Just Love in Nashville in 2016, which featured their trademark bright, cheery, wholesome ballads, songs about their fairy tale romance and a resounding feeling of upbeat, sunny positivity. They have also toured with a capella group Pentatonix and are renowned for their annual videos in which they attempt to cover every pop hit of the year into three and a half minutes.
