Actress and singer Anna Akana join's Let's Go There to discuss her new music. Plus, we exclusively preview her new single “Alone Together”.

Akana has been known for her comedy and has built a huge following on YouTube sharing her experience with mental health and relationships. She's now bringing that raw and honest look at life to her music. Her single "Intervention" explores her own battle with alcohol addiction and "Alone Together" looks at moving forward after a tough breakup. Akana recently came out as bisexual on her YouTube channel and her new music video will also feature a same-sex couple. She emphasizes, however, that while this inclusion is essential in media and storytelling it should be normalized.
