Grace VanderWaal

She’s a superstar who got her big break at 13 years old. Grace VanderWaal believes your goal should be to find something that’ll make you happy. She’s taking the world by storm through her music and by sharing a simple message, “You Be You.” Grace hopes her experience will inspire her fans to be the best version of themselves.


Lyrics: The whole crowd seems to like me now 'cause they think I'm cool but back when I was in school, they found it very easy to hate me. Funny how always these times are changing. Back then I was so easy to shatter, but now in the end it doesn't really matter.

Grace: If I had a dollar for every time someone told me I'd get voted off for doing that? I'd have a million dollars before I won the show. I kept telling them, "If I got voted off doing what you told me to do, I would forever wonder what would happen if I did what my gut told me to do."

Grace: I don't want to tell people in my music that the world is perfect because it's not. I wanna tell people that the world can be perfect because of you.

Confidence. Pass It On!

You deserve all the credit for your success and the hard work it takes. And I'd like to think that was all sparked in you by the supporting parents you must have. Thank you for seeing that and going for it. Entertaining!

Grace has been amazing, since she was born, and she has been able to grow fast with the pressures of the world choices and still exploring. I do hope she will e able to continue sharing her creative gifts with the world, for our sake.

I grew up dancing. Not anything to put a name to. Feeling each instrument is the only way I can dance. This child has given me the confidence to do it again and soon. A drunk driver hit the car I was a passenger in costing me my right forearm as well as injuries to my brain making my career over in a few minutes of someone else's delerium. I have come a far way since that day. Lying in a hospital bed again watching these videos has inspired me to get up and dance regardless of how I look now with half an arm but a magnitude of energy being shoved down so far I don't see me in the mirror. I guarantee I will be dancing to every instrument once again.

Love seeing this! I am a safety and awareness professional in the Denver area, passionately attacking the bullying epidemic in our schools and communities. Would love to connect with like minded peoples that want to create the change we desperately need to see.

My daughters (age 7 and 3) and I have watched your segment on AGT a few times now. Each time, they smile and sing along, telling me they want to be like you. May you continue to inspire those around you of all ages, continue to be humble, and continue your passion. You have a gift - thank you for sharing it with the world!

Exceptional talent, confidence starts in the home, if everyone had a family like Grace there would be millions of Grace's in the world. Graces first audience was her family and positive re-enforcement is everything

Daryl H from ALBERTA JULY 17, 2018
The message I get from listening to Grace is to be unafraid to be myself. To trust my self. To love myself. Grace I love you. You have made my life better by leading by example. I am much older than you get you I spire me. Thank you

Grace is the definition of brilliant-very bright and radiant,exceptionally clever or talented. She will be around 30-40 yrs from now trying to save someone somewhere speaking up for someone who's afraid to make a sound. I am amazed by her talent but her heart makes me do anything possible or seemingly impossible just to show her support. I have no doubt in my mind this world will be dramatically effected by her. I personally cant wait to buy a ticket to that show. So glad I don't have to live in a world where Grace Vanderwaal didn't win AGT and affected everyone of hearts she's crossed paths with. God bless

You are truly amazing! I love your words and your messages in songs and speeches. You'll probably not read this, but I really mean this. You are fantastic and inspire me and I believe every single person that listens to you. I got your album to inspire and confort me, not only to listen to your music. So, thank you Grace!
