Once you hear the voice on the radio or on T.V., you immediately know who is singing.

The Top Ten

1 Grace VanderWaal Grace VanderWaal

This singer-song writer and Columbia recording artist won season 11 of AGT in 2016. Her debut album broke Billboard's top ten (and they also named her to their 2016 21-under-21 list). She has a phenomenal vocal range, and her raspy voice crackles and then lands precisely pitch perfect on the note it needs to hit. Her voice is instantly recognizable and has become widely admired in the 8 short months since she broke into public view.

How can you get more distinctive than Grace. She is what I imagine Angels sound like when singing.

Every time I hear something knew from her it's better than the last. She is an outstanding performer.

Grace Vanderwaal!
