Grace VanderWaal is Fan-Girling Over Meeting Youtuber Miranda Sings IRL

Grace VanderWaal is Fan-Girling Over Meeting Youtuber Miranda Sings IRL

Colleen Ballinger, creator of the hilarious lipsticked character Miranda Sings, is a fan-favorite Youtube personality — and she has a fan in singer Grace VanderWaal.

“Still can’t believe I finally met the famus @colleenb123 @mirandasings!!!!,” Grace tweeted this morning. “She’s InCreDiBal. #VidConUS #YouTubeOnStage.”

Of course, she accompanied her post with several lipstick emojis — because what else?

Grace has had the opportunity to meet a number of influential people since winning America’s Got Talent, from dueting with Jason Mraz at the Special Olympics to freakout out over High School Musical star Monique Coleman.

We wouldn’t HATE to see a collab between these two, either.

Grace VanderWaal Has Us Dancing With New Song 'Moonlight' - Listen Here & Get The Lyrics!

Grace VanderWaal has blessed all our Wednesdays with a brand new song called “Moonlight”.

The reigning America’s Got Talent champion dropped the song after teasing it just last week before her quick trip to Japan.

The youthful song features a stomping beat that complements her signature ukulele sound and she’ll be performing the track today on VidCon’s #YouTubeOnStage!

Grace shared the meaning behind the song, saying, “’Moonlight’ is about somebody you know very well changing unnaturally over time right in front of you and pushing you away, so you want to help bring them back to their original self.”

Grace VanderWaal is 100% Sure Deaf Singer Mandy Harvey is the Winner of 'America's Got Talent'

Grace VanderWaal is 100% Sure Deaf Singer Mandy Harvey is the Winner of 'America's Got Talent'

It’s been exactly one year now since Grace VanderWaal first took the stage on America’s Got Talent with a viral performance (and went on to win the entire show.) Now, she is rooting for a new talent who she sees herself in — AGT contestant Mandy Harvey.

Mandy is a deaf singer and songwriter who blew the judges away and was lauded with a golden buzzer with an original song — just like Grace.

“This is the most amazing special thing I have seen,” Grace wrote in response to a clip of Mandy‘s audition, “Just magical.”

Mandy, of course, was delighted to hear from the 13-year-old superstar. “AHHHHH Thank you @GraceVanderWaal,” she replied, ” …If you ever need another Ukulele loving gal to sing with i’m here! #goldenbuzzertwins #agt.”

“I would be beyond honored!” Grace answered, “I can’t even find the words to explain how blown away I am by you and I am 100% sure that you are the winner.”

So are we, and we love that Grace is taking an interest in mentoring new talent! These two women have so much in common, and they are both so talented. Between Mandy, nine-year-old Angelica Hale‘s singing chops, and ventriloquist Darcy Lynne Farmer (watch here), this season is sure to have fierce competition!

Grace VanderWaal Reminisces About Her AGT Golden Buzzer Moment

Grace VanderWaal Reminisces About Her AGT Golden Buzzer Moment

Can you believe that it’s been one full year since Grace VanderWaal entered our lives?

The reigning America’s Got Talent champion had her audition a year ago today, and had a total pinch me moment on Twitter.

“I didn’t know it then but on June 7, 2016 my life would change forever,” she wrote. “I will always be grateful for the opportunities I have been given.”

Awww!

So far this season, there have been two Golden Buzzers handed out — one for sweetheart ventriloquist Darci Lynn Farmer and the other to deaf singer Mandy Harvey.

Mandy actually lost hearing in both of her ears when she was 18 due to a degenerative ear disease while she was a freshman in college and pursuing music.

After leaving the music program and teach herself how to sing again using muscle memorization and feeling the vibration of the music with her feet.
