12-year-old Grace VanderWaal captured the hearts of the internet earlier this year when her America’s Got Talent audition was watched over 12 million times.
Grace, her ukulele and her original song, I Don’t Know My Name impressed the judges so much that Howie Mandel granted her with his Golden Buzzer.
And it was right there and then that we fell in love with the young singer/songwriter.
“Miracles can happen,” she mumbled through her happy tears.
Since then VanderWaal - who purchased her ukulele with her 11th birthday money - performed a new original song as part of each semi-final.
Her unique style, voice and adorable quirkiness comes out in each performance.
Here’s one of our favourites:
Dubbed the ‘next Taylor Swift’, the New Yorker made sure to let the world know that she’s in fact the first Grace VanderWaal - and she has just won season 11 of America’s Got Talent.
As well as collecting the one million dollar prize fund, VanderWaal will also headline the PH Showroom at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Oct 27, 28 and 29.
