About Grace VanderWaal

Grace VanderWaal is a pop singer and TV reality-competition winner known for her distinctive quirky vocals and ukulele-driven tunes.

∙ She wanted a ukulele for her 11th birthday, but her mom didn’t think she would actually play it—so Grace bought one herself and learned by watching online videos.
∙ In 2015, she began posting covers and original songs online, and the following year, at age 12, she won America’s Got Talent.
Perfectly Imperfect—her first EP with all originals, including her competition highlight, “I Don’t Know My Name”—debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 in 2016.
∙ Her first official video, for the single “Moonlight”—from her hit 2017 debut album, Just the Beginning—garnered more than 10 million views in under two months.
∙ At the 2017 Teen Choice Awards, she won Choice Next Big Thing honors, and she took home the Rising Star Award at that year’s Billboard Women in Music event.
∙ VanderWaal made her acting debut in 2020 as the star of the Disney teen drama film Stargirl, which featured her song “Today and Tomorrow.”
