Ingrid Michaelson and Grace had a “connection” through Ingrid Michaelson’s song “Keep Breathing” which AGT used as the underlying music for Grace’s audition. Another connection was the title for the "Perfectly Imperfect" EP which Grace in an interview told she had taken inspiration from Ingrid Michaelson’s song ”It doesn’t have to make sense”. (see notes in the "Records" section for "Perfectly Imperfect")
Just two days after her semifinal performance on AGT, Grace went to an Ingrid Michaelson concert at The Troubadour in Los Angeles, where Grace would later perform herself. She not only saw the performance but also met Ingrid in person: "... I went to one of her concerts, and I really love her; I love her voice" (The Grammy museum interview 22 July, 2018)
Ingrid reached out to Grace on Twitter to ask if she would collaborate for the Christmas album and Grace just said yes. “Grace has such an old soul voice,” Michaelson said in a statement. “Her sound is so unique; I knew she would bring warmth and energy to the song.” (Billboard Dec 10, 2018)

As a rule, we only have bios on artists that Grace has worked with or who have had a part in the creation or production of her music. The amount of information on each of these artists varies greatly, dependent on how much has been readily available. We have tried to identify the artists correctly, but sometimes it has been difficult to determine who exactly is behind the name. Unless otherwise stated, the bios are based on data retrieved at the start of 2021.
