"While visiting the Z100 studios ... Grace belted out a cover of Alessia Cara's hit single, "Scars to Your Beautiful." Naturally, she crushed it, and her voice sounded incredible on the song.
And if Grace singing Alessia's music wasn't sweet enough, the two singers had an adorable Twitter exchange afterward. Grace tweeted out a link to the video of her cover, and Alessia noticed the tag. She quoted Grace's tweet, telling her that she's a star – with a couple of heart emojis for good measure. It's the beginning of a beautiful friendship." (Teen Vogue 25. January 2017)
