Performance [168] 13-Jun-2018 (Evolve Tour (Imagine Dragons) - Opener)

Concert



Notes

“Before Imagine Dragons, we were treated to an amazing performance by up and coming artist Grace Vanderwaal. The 14-year-old ukulele “pop prodigy” as hailed by Rolling Stone, got things started off with a bang! You may recognize her from the 11th season of America’s Got Talent. She was crowned the winner of the show in 2016! Despite the extremely windy conditions (you could hear it howling through her microphone), Grace commanded the stage and sung her joyful hits like “Clearly”, “So Much More Than This”, and “I Don’t Know my Name.” Did I mention she’s only 14 years old?! Grace is a truly gifted singer, and I’m sure we’ll hear more from her in the future.” (Kiss925.com)

“Grace is an amazing performer and she is really embracing this opportunity with ID. Her voice has a smoother, silkier tone and she dances with reckless abandon. She is infectious and a real star and I can’t help but think this is a mere step on her journey to super stardom. My Wife said, “She’s way better than I thought she would be”, and my son seemed almost lost for words when asked if he liked Grace, he smiled and nodded “Holy Cow!”.”
(Gaetan Drapeau /The Vandervault 14 6 2018)

“Two years ago, Vanderwaal was the adorable, wide-eyed, 12-year-old winner of the 11th season of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” Now all of 14, she is finally catching up to her idiosyncratic, wise-beyond-its-years voice. Wearing a flowing white dress and flowers in hair, just as she does on the cover of “Just the Beginning,” her 2017 full-length debut for Columbia Records, she skip-hopped barefoot across the stage. She struggled at times to assert her voice against the loud guitar, drums and keyboards behind her. But her vocal and songwriting gifts were clearly evident as soon as she reverted to what initially charmed the “America’s Got Talent” judges: accompanying herself on ukulele while singing her own “I Don’t Know My Name.” Her performance of “I Don’t Know My Name” on Sunday was every bit as striking as it was on “America’s Got Talent.” Only now she’s two years closer to figuring out who she is, and who she will be.” (Nola.com Aug. 5, 2018)
