Grace VanderWaal To Release Debut Album "Just The Beginning

Singer/songwriter Grace VanderWaal has announced her debut album Just the Beginning will release on November 3. The 12-track album features her infectious single “Moonlight,” which has over 15 million combined video views and 18 million combined worldwide streams, along with the beat-driven track “Sick of Being Told” and the just-released song “So Much More Than This.” Just the Beginning is the follow up to Grace’s debut EP Perfectly Imperfect, which was the best-selling EP of 2016. The album is available for pre-order as of September 15, celebrating the one-year anniversary of her winning America’s Got Talent.

In addition to writing all the songs on the album, Grace also worked with multiple award winning producers and writers Ido Zmishlany (Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello), Kinetics & One Love (Hailee Steinfeld), Greg Wells (Katy Perry, Adele), Gregg Wattenberg (Train, Phillips Phillips) and Sean Douglas (The Chainsmokers, Demi Lovato). 


"So many people have worked so hard on this, and I'm beyond excited for everyone to hear it,” Grace says. “I'm so grateful for all my supportive fans. They motivated me so much through this album. I really hope you all like it, and hopefully it's just the beginning."


The young star, who recently won the Radio Disney Music Award for The Freshest - Best New Artist and the Teen Choice Award for Choice Next Big Thing, is set to embark on her sold-out U.S. headlining tour this fall. The ‘Just The Beginning Tour’ kicks off in Los Angeles on November 5 and will make stops in major cities across the U.S. including Chicago, Boston and New York City. See full list of tour dates below.


Following impressive performances of “Moonlight” on America’s Got Talent and Live with Kelly and Ryan this past month, Grace is set to take the stage on The Ellen DeGeneres Show for another incredible performance of the single on Monday, September 18. “Moonlight” has received critical praise from Billboard, who called it the “perfect summer song,” and The New York Times, who noted that Grace is a “pop natural” and the single “sounds like steroidal bluegrass-inflected space-pop,” among others.


When Grace captured the hearts of America and was crowned the champion of America’s Got Talent Season 11 last year, she wished to use her winnings to get her dream treehouse. Grace’s dream came true Friday night (September 15) on her episode of Animal Planet’s Treehouse Masters at 9/8c. She received not one, but two amazing treehouses, each with its own unique style. The first treehouse is a boho chic clubhouse, complete with a loft and kitchenette, while across the way in another set of trees is a window-walled art studio.
