Imagine being a quirky adorable 12 year old sitting in your bedroom making up songs to sing and decide you know what I want to go on America’s got Talent just to see if anyone likes my singing. You don’t even tell your friends and school mates you like to sing and the next thing you know you don’t have to tell them because everyone in America is talking about you. Not only did Grace Vanderwaal go on the show she won it hands down.
This little pixie of a girl stepped up to the mic and started singing “I don’t know my name” and suddenly the entire country knew her name and face and were not likely to forget it any time soon. Her song was not only self written but it came at a time when American Youth needed someone to look up to and realize they were not alone in this world with not knowing who they were or where they were going. But they found hope in Grace. If this girl can get up in front of millions and sing they could do what ever they needed to do to get through life too.
Winning AGT changed this little girls life. She went into online courses being homeschooled and started traveling the country not only writing and singing songs but recording them as well. She post her songs on her youtube channel and the fans kept flocking in.
Grace has a unique voice. Not every one gets it. But when she opens her mouth to sing you hear an old soul escaping her mouth and if you had your eyes closed you would never guess it was a young girl singing. There is just something different about her tone and raspy voice that catches your attention.
Grace is now 13 years old and has traveled the world. She has produced albums and is set to star in a documentary about her budding music career. I bet when she walked on that stage of Americas Got Talent she never imagined how much her life was about to change forever.
Her newest release moonlight is proof Miss Grace Vanderwaal will be around for a long time sharing her amazing talent with us.
