Gracie McMusic












Everyday Miss G - Gracie - disappears downstairs and sings her little heart out. When I hear her, whether at home or at church, I stop          and listen. Her gorgeous, gentle, heartfelt voice has this impact on me. Early this morning Gracie shared her talents outside a coffee shop, along with her guitar teacher from earlier years (also sharing his quality instruments and equipment). She hadn't sung in a public setting like this and she was very well received. She turned 17 a few days ago and I can see much more singing in her future - it is her passion. Her twin sister, Miss N, also has a lovely, perfectly complementary voice and plays several instruments but her greater passion is sport.

A few months ago Gracie started her own YouTube channel to share covers of her singing and playing. She has recorded these at home, all by herself, using my Canon DSLR and uploaded them unedited. You can have a look - or a listen - here.

She hopes to continue to develop her talents and one day buy some better instruments and equipment. For now, her guitar teacher is keen to have her share any singing engagements he may book.

And I will continue to enjoy listening to our little songbird everyday.

I know just how her singing makes you feel. My 17 year old granddaughter does the same to me. She is in the process of having interviews at several Music Conservatoires - I'm keeping everything crossed that she will succeed.
I am just about to head over and listen to your Gracie - a perfect name for both her looks and voice.

I went to You Tube, first listened to one song, then another and I finished having listened to them all. She has a wonderful voice in combination with the lovely songs she chose. I think Gracie is very talented and so nice to sing for the public outside a coffee shop.
Wish her a lot of succes and joy with her passion.

What a beautiful voice she has! I went to her youtube channel and listened to a few songs, and will definitely go back and listen to the remaining ones. I bet her performance was wonderful to see and hear, the pictures are great!

Thank you for sharing this with us! Charlotte and I listened to some of Gracie's songs. Not only can she sing, but she has a delightful stage presence.

You know Karen, it delights me when I can participate in the joy of those I know as they share the talents of their children.

Hi Karen, I'm sorry i've been so absent of late, too much difficult things happening on the work front that has deeply affected me,and in turn, the routine of my home life. I will get back on track soon. I cannot let it pass however before saying how lovely it was to read your post about miss g singing. Even though this may sound short in response, can you please tell her, after I have watched those YouTube videos of her- that she owns it. You can just tell she's embracing every note and especially with the strength of her voice, that she simply, just owns it. Thank you Gracie for being courageous to post those videos. I can completely understand the pride in your mums written voice about your obvious talent and recent accomplishments. Renee

So very happy for Miss G to have this fun new outlet for sharing her beautiful singing! And so glad we get to hear too...isn't youtube great?!? She is a beautiful young lady!

What a wonderful way to showcase and share her passion for music with others! Gracie's voice is lovely (listened to a couple of her covers on youtube :))

Liz said...

Wow!! What a gift! She has the voice of an angel.
I have subscribed to her YouTube channel, shared on Facebook and Google+. I will also look her up on Instagram (I have a large 4000+ following there, so if I can give her a shout out I am happy to do so)
You must be so proud!

In my time away from blogs toward the end of the year, I missed this post! So glad you linked to it. I love seeing people, of all ages, pursue their passions. I always find music makes my days better, it must be a great joy to have her voice to listen to!
