Grace VanderWaal releases lyric video for Light the Sky
Grace VanderWaal continues her reign of adorableness with this exclusive debut of her lyric video for her latest track, “Light the Sky.”
The 12-year-old ukulele player, who won both hearts and America’s Got Talent this summer, released her first EP, Perfectly Imperfect, earlier this month. VanderWaal’s audition on the show earned her a Taylor Swift comparison from Simon Cowell and became one of the most popular YouTube videos of the year.
“Light the Sky” is an original song VanderWaal first performed on AGT. The lyric video features the glow-in-the-dark stars you either had on your childhood bedroom ceiling or wished your parents would allow you to have changing formations in time to the music.
“My head is spinning and my feet off the ground and I can’t stop dancing like no one’s around and, yeah, I think we were born to shine,” she croons. “We’re brighter than fireflies, we’re gonna light the sky.”
Watch the video below. VanderWaal is set to perform on the America’s Got Talent Holiday Spectacular on Dec. 19 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
The track is also featured in Google’s Year in Search 2016 video. Watch it here.
