Grace VanderWaal to Emerging Musicians Everywhere: 'Don't Try and Be A Pop Star. Be Yourself'

Grace VanderWaal is doing pretty well for herself at just 13-years-old.

The former AGT champ just put out her first album, Just The Beginning, and is currently on a small tour around the country for it.

Speaking with Time, Grace opened up about writing her album and how much power she had inside the studio.

“I definitely have confidence. Especially because I’m a woman, and especially because I’m really young,” she shared. “People are extra nice and extra open to all your ideas, because they want to make sure they’re not pinned as the mean producer or whatever.”

Grace also offered some sage advice for anyone trying to break into the music industry now and it’s advice that you can use in every walk of life.

“Just be yourself. I’ve met so many people and seen so many online that are just trying to be this pop star. And honestly, they would probably be a lot more successful if they were just themselves, because people can sense that.”
