About La Bala
Isabella de la Torre was born on July 19, 2004 in Mexico City. From the
time, she was very young she loved the arts: dancing, writing, singing
and drawing. At the age of seven, she began to take violin lessons and
from that moment, her love for musical instruments arose. Today she
plays piano, guitar, ukulele and is currently learning to play the drums.
In September 2015, with the support of her parents, she launched her
YouTube channel with the sole aim of making people laugh. “Bella,” as
she is lovingly referred to by her family, decides to name her channel
“La Bala” (the bullet), as her parents would often say that she was “as
fast as a bullet” in all aspects of her life.
It was not long before the launch of La Bala’s YouTube channel, that her
authentic and fun personality won the hearts of the digital audience,
reaching nearly 6 million followers on her YouTube channel and 2 million
on Instagram. What is most important for her are her followers, which
are known as “Balovers”, and she claims “together with
them, we are a team.” She works hard every day making her videos to
get a smile and a laugh from her fans. Above all, she is thankful that
they give her one of the most valuable things: their time.
La Bala dreams of being a singer and songwriter and already has four
music videos on her YouTube channel. Her first single Mi Momento
(My moment), currently has more than 30 million views.
