6. 12 Stars (12 Stars, 2016)
“This probably won’t be seen but in some interview she explains the title. It was supposed to be, I think, 6 Moons but she said there was already a song named that so she went with 12 Stars. And I think that 12 was because she was 12. She doesn’t say what movie this is about but Hunger Games does kinda make sense.”
5. I Don’t Know My Name (Perfectly Imperfect, 2016)
“It just makes me so happy listening to this song. When I first heard her on AGT I knew that she was going to be an idol to all of the young girls out there that get told that they can’t do it. She is just so inspiring to me and so many others. I just love her so much.”
4. Clay (Perfectly Imperfect, 2016)
“I adore this girl and cant wait to see what’s next. Her lyrics are rich, yet simple and thought provoking. Listening always brightens my day. We need more music like this.”
3. Light the Sky (Perfectly Imperfect, 2016)
“I just feel so connected to her when i listen to this song. Like, i feel a lot connected in a lot of stuff to her, but this song is just more than ever. She just expresses myself in this song.”
2. Gossip Girl (Perfectly Imperfect, 2016)
“Her music is not about sex, money and fame. This is all about Women empowerment. Perfectly imperfect album is an element.”
1. Beautiful Thing (Perfectly Imperfect, 2016)
“If you know anyone who thinks Grace’s voice is just raspy and croaky — and nothing more — have them listen to this cut. Her voice goes from delicate softness – almost a whisper – to a beautiful vibrato, a natural falsetto, to just belting it out with tremendous emotion and power, and of course and some raspiness, too.”
