Grace Has Already Had Major Success In Her Young Career

Grace is definitely one of the most successful contestants to come out of the ‘AGT’ franchise. She auditioned for the show in 2016 and we could never forget the moment judge Howie Mandel hit his Golden Buzzer. Grace was only 12 when she stunned the judges with her original song not knowing that moment would change her life forever.
