Grace VanderWaal is from Suffern, New York. She lives with her mother, father, her older sister by three years (and best friend) Olivia, and two dogs. Grace started writing music at the age of three, making up songs with her wireless microphone. Before her audition, she had never sung in front of very large crowds.
Grace VanderWaal’s audition in Episode 1102 consisted of singing “I Don’t Know My Name,” a song about finding who you are and where you fit in, while playing the ukulele. Moved by her performance, Howie Mandel pressed his Golden Buzzer to send Grace straight to the Quarterfinals. Simon Cowell even said that he thought that she could be the next Taylor Swift.
Grace said, “I felt like any second, I was just going to wake up and be in my room and say awe it was just a crazy dream”. Dreams really do come true if you just believe. We are so proud of Grace.
Grace also mentioned on twitter that going to Japan has always been on my bucket list! We believe she will be in Japan before we know it. 🙂
Be inspired to share your dreams and know that they are possible to achieve.
Congrats again Grace!
