Grace VanderWaal Wins The Rising Star Award At The Billboard 2017 Women in Music Presentation
Last season we were all charmed by Grace VanderWaal. Who doesn’t love a girl with the voice of an angel and mad ukulele skills? Her new album dropped a couple of weeks ago and is doing very well and she is selling out her shows. The Billboard 2017 Women in Music awards gave her the rising star award.
It’s hard to argue that she is a rising star. She’s also a pretty great songwriter for someone so young. She’s the very definition of a child prodigy. You can really see Grace’s poise and maturity in this clip of her acceptance speech for the award. I wish I could conduct myself this well at 40 much less as a teenager. I wouldn’t be surprised if in the near future she wins a Billboard award on the main show.
With Grace winning AGT last year and Darci Lynne Farmer winning this year it’s definitely a time for kids in talent competition shows. I can’t wait to see what’s next for Grace.
