UR SO BEAUTIFUL TOUR: Grace VanderWaal
Starting: 08:00 PM
Award-winning singer, songwriter, actress, model, philanthropist, high school freshmanGrace VanderWaal contains incredible multitudes. After her star-making turn as the winner of NBCs Americas Got Talent in 2016, VanderWaal has released a best-selling EP, Perfectly Imperfect, and full-length album, Just The Beginning, much to the delight of her millions-strong fanbase and critics alike. Now the New York Times-approved mature songwriter and pop natural is back with new music for 2019, beginning with a new original song titled Stray.
When I write a song, I don't really know what they're about until much later, when I'm like Oh, that's what my subconscious was trying to say, says VanderWaal of her creative process, which begins with songwriting and extends to musical arrangements and visual treatments. Stray, which comes with a music video dreamt up by VanderWaal and brought to life with help from director Blythe Thomas, eventually revealed itself to be about the exhilarating fear and freedom of growing up. The song features VanderWaals soulfully raspy vocals atop a moody, searching sound thats a departure from her signature airy ukulele riffs.
