Grace McGee is a ten year old marvel from Orlando, Florida. 2010 was a breakout year for Grace. In July, Grace was hired to record at Roy O. Disney Production Center, located in Lake Buena Vista at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Grace's vocals from that session were heard daily last December in the Main Street holiday parade at the Magic Kingdom. Grace took another big step with the November, 2010 release of All I Want For Christmas, her first solo studio production. The playful holiday song was written and produced by Diamond Award winning and multi-platinum producer/songwriter Gary Carolla (*NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, Aaron Carter). All I Want For Christmas is supported by a music video, featuring Grace and her friends.
Despite her youth, Grace has already been performing live for several years. Grace's appearances include a National Anthem solo when she was only seven years old, for a crowd of more than twelve thousand! Grace earned the privilege of performing before such a large audience after she entered and won a radio station competition to appear at a Foreigner concert. Grace was the only child in the competition, but she prevailed over the other 18 finalists. Just before Foreigner took the stage, and joined by U.S. Marine Corps honor guards, Grace inspired a sea of Central Florida fans with her spirited performance.
Ever since her National Anthem debut, Grace has continued to both sing and to compete. Performing at numerous venues around her hometown of Orlando, Grace has shared her voice with a wide variety of audiences. At the same time, Grace has been a devoted gymnast who trains over 20 hours each week. In January, 2011, Grace started her Level 8 season with competitions in Las Vegas, Colorado Springs, Virginia Beach, and at ESPN's Wide World of Sports at Disney World. Grace has already won events in both Las Vegas and at Wide World of Sports, and Grace won the All-Around in Colorado Springs! In March, Grace competes in the National Gymnastics Challenge (Athens, GA) and in the Florida State Championships.
If Grace did not already have more than enough to keep her busy, Grace's collaboration with producer/ songwriter Gary Carolla is ongoing. A release of the soulful single I Will Always is expected in April, 2011.
