The extremely talented Grace VanderWaal has been racking up the social media praise with her wonderful cover of Elvis Presley‘s “Can’t Help Falling In Love.”

We were first introduced to VanderWaal in 2016 when she auditioned for the eleventh season America’s Got Talent with her self-written song “I Don’t Know My Name” that instantly captured the attention and hearts of audience members, as well as the judges.

Her performance was so powerful that longtime AGT judge Howie Mandel did the honors of hitting golden buzzer, allowing VanderWaal to advance straight to the live shows further into the season. She later made history when she was crowned champion, as she became the youngest winner of  AGT in the history of the show!

While VanderWaal has covered a variety of iconic melodies, and debuted several original songs, her take on The King’s well-known hit is one of a kind. In addition to her impressive ukulele skills, her rhythm and voice well beyond her years are captivating her viewers and leaving us wanting more.
