Grace VanderWaal's mature voice can fool anyone into believing she is at least 30 years old, but her new video for "So Much More Than This" reminds everyone that she is still a youngster -- in the best way.
In the video, the 13-year-old VanderWaal -- who was just honored with the Rising Star Award at Billboard Women in Music -- expresses her child-like spirit. She starts out indoors, clearly bored and frustrated attempting to write a song no avail, as crumpled pages of dead ideas pile up next to her. She steps into the studio to presumably record "So Much More Than This" when she breaks out of the room (literally) and suddenly finds herself in a bright green open field.
Hailing from New York, Grace VanderWaal rose to fame after winning the eleventh season of America’s Got Talent in 2016.

Following her win on the competition show, VanderWaal released her debut EP, Perfectly imperfect in late 2016. A considerable hit, it peaked at number nine on the Billboard Top 200, a sure feat for any thirteen-year-old. Since then, she has also dropped her first studio album, Just the Beginning, which gave rise to the charting singles, So Much More Than This, and Moonlight. Recognized for her talents, VanderWaal received a Teen Choice Award for Choice Next Big Thing and a Rising Star Award from Billboard in 2017.
