Billboard honors Grace with 'Rising Star' award at Women in Music ceremony
Singer/songwriter Grace VanderWaal has released the official video for her uplifting new single "So Much More Than This." The dreamy video embodies the song's theme of getting so lost in the music that it transports one somewhere completely different.
The video will be featured as part of Grace's MTV Push: Artist To Watch campaign for the month of December. "So Much More Than This" follows "Moonlight" as the second single from Grace's debut album, "Just The Beginning." Watch the video HERE
On Thursday, Grace was honored with the "Rising Star" award at Billboard's Women in Music ceremony in Los Angeles. Grace also took the stage at the event to perform her hit single "Moonlight" - check out the performance HERE
The young star recently embarked on her sold-out U.S. headlining tour. The "Just The Beginning Tour" kicked off in Los Angeles and will make additional stops in February 2018 in Boston, Dallas, Denver and San Francisco.
"Just the Beginning" is the official follow up to Grace's debut EP, "Perfectly Imperfect," which was the best-selling EP of 2016. The album launch celebrates the incredible year Grace has had following her win on the 11th season of "America's Got Talent."
Grace won the Radio Disney Music Award for The Freshest - Best New Artist and the Teen Choice Award for Choice Next Big Thing, was tapped for Variety's "Youth Impact Report" and Billboard's "21 Under 21" for the second time, while also signing a modeling deal with IMG Models Worldwide. She has also seen wide critical praise, with The New York Times calling her "a pop natural," USA Today naming her a "songwriting phenom," and Billboard praising her "restrained yet affecting vocal delivery beyond her years."
