Although she is only twelve years old, Grace has already written original songs and taught herself how to play the ukulele. Her audition for America’s Got Talent went viral with over 100 million views on Facebook.
When she auditioned, Simon Cowell compared Grace to Taylor Swift because Taylor began writing her own songs at an early age as well. Since then, the comparisons have only grown stronger as Grace continued to perform original songs in the competition.
Besides taking the winning title, Grace will also receive one million dollars and her own headlining show in Las Vegas!
