Sitting In Front Of Her Camera, Grace VanderWaal Sings A Simple Cover Worth Hearing

A raw, beautiful performance.

Visit Music Notes to let A Plus "note" the new songs, videos, and artists you should be paying attention to, as well as discuss noteworthy performances by veterans and rookies at award and talent shows.

By now, you're probably used to seeing Grace VanderWaal singing on some pretty big stages: America's Got Talent, iHeartRadio, Billboard's Women In Music Awards 2017, MTV, the 2017 Special Olympics, YouTube's VidCon, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Ellen Show, to name some. 

VanderWaal's also released music videos to her original tracks "Moonlight," "So Much More Than This," and, most recently, "City Song."

And while we're quick to tune in to any of these performances, VanderWaal recently turned to her original YouTube channel, "Oh Never mind it's just me," to upload a raw, stripped-down cover performance of "Lonesome Town" by Ricky Nelson. 

For this song, VanderWaal sits right in front of the camera, singing sans instrumentals or editing. The video quality is sub-par, but the vocals certainly are not.

We love that VanderWaal continues sharing her voice on her channel, and hope she does many more covers just like this.
