Mary-Grace was born on Cinco De Mayo, May 5th, 1996. It's been a party ever since! Growing up in Murfreesboro, TN, she attends Central Magnet School and is in 12th grade. Crowds in Kindergarten enjoyed her singing at its first talent show, but she's been singing ever since she could talk. She has performed for over 9 years at the "Generation for Creation" talent show and has continually taken top honors in her age category for vocal performance.
She was adopted by Middle Tennessee State University, MTSU, while she was in the 5th grade. Her musical theater includes "The Sound of Music," "Cinderella," "A Christmas Carol," "Ragtime," "Seussical the Musical," and "Footloose" and many other productions at the Center for The Arts. She also performed at Thurman Francis Arts Academy, TFAA, in Smyrna, Tennessee.
For many years, she has sung at fairs, festivals, fundraisers, and community events all across Middle Tennessee. In spring of 2013, she was featured on CMT to sing an arrangement with other artists from The Boys and Girls' Club in front of The Band Perry on the Hot 20 Countdown. She was also featured on CMT to be interviewed about the Notes for Notes program at the Boys and Girls' Clubs. About a week after the premiere of her on CMT, she performed at the Boys and Girls' Club Gala and met Martin Sheen, and returned to the gala in 2014 and met Rob Lowe; she also performed as well.
She has been working with songwriters in Nashville on her pop/alternative/R&B sound, and has recently collaborated with a young R&B artist. They combined their sounds to create a new EP "Stage IV," releasing in August 2014. Earlier in the year, she had the privilege to meet and perform with the famous rock guitarist, Carlos Santana at Sound Image studios, here in Nashville. She also participated in the Miss Unite National Pageant on August 16th at Rocketown in downtown Nashville, representing Teen Tennessee.

Her song selection will incorporate rhythm and blues, pop, and alternative music, creating a never before experience that has left audiences breathless.
