Performance [121] 5-Nov-2017 (Just the Beginning Tour - Headliner)



”… this isn't the green AGT VanderWaal. This is a mature recording artist who goes for high notes in So Much More Than This (a song that's "so hard to sing live"). It's a singer who invites fans to sing along for the now-classic Clay. It's someone jumps without abandon during City Song.

And it's a musician who goes from playing with her three-piece band, to playing an uke solo, and singing some acapella...” (USA Today dec 16 2019)
