“Little Miracles” Foundation has started with a school district right next to where Grace lives, where music funding had been drastically reduced due to the district’s budget challenges. Music and art programs had been eliminated by the East Ramapo Board of Education in 2012. The district has been embroiled in financial controversy. Funding for the choir will be donated by Vanderwaal and matched with state funds secured by NYS Senator David Carlucci.
Grace has partnered with Fender and Shure, who provide a quantity of free musical instruments and professional grade audio equipment to each district as the program builds. In addition to the equipment, Grace is providing two college scholarships in the affected districts for high school seniors who want to pursue music at the next level.
The “Little Miracles” is a show choir for middle school students. There is no try-out required; rather all that is required is simply a passion for music. Most of the kids have no other way to have music be part of their lives, so “Little Miracles” gives them an opportunity to learn and enjoy music. The group is made up of fourth, fifth, and sixth graders from the East Ramapo School District.
Grace got the NY senate “woman of distinction” award for her work with the choir.

About This List
The list of performances includes every event where Grace has performed a song or part of a song for an audience (live or online) except very short snippets of songs. The list is based on information from many different sources and on valuable feedback from members of the VanderVault discussion forums. We would particularly like to thank Mike Kertok who’s impressive work on his Grace Vanderwaal Timeline has yielded information on performances we had not come across anywhere else.
The list is updated regularly. If you have any additions or corrections to the list, please send a mail with as many details as possible (and for corrections, with a reference to the performance-ID in the list) to email@example.com. Please be patient with the implementation of your suggestions, thanks.
A few notes on dates: The performance date will always be the day the performance was made public (for live performances = the actual performance date). If we know that a performance was recorded at an earlier date (fx for a tv- or radio-show), that date will be noted in the comments. If we know the month of a performance but not the day of the month, the performance is set to the first of that month. If we know the quarter/season (e.g., spring), the date is set to the first of that quarter. And if we only know the year, the date is set to the first of January. Whenever a performance is dated this way, there will be note about it in the comments.
