I completely agree , very average an who knows how much help she obtains with writing
Just like all those who were sure that Jackie was lip-syncing someone else's performance?
I like to think Grace (like Jackie) would be flattered that you find her talent so incredible, you immediately think she had to have had help composing her music.
It happens all the time , composers have helpers , duh , she might have , do you believe all show-biz people ? , people behind the artists are there believe it or not , I believe Emily Bear wrote her Album , that is true music talent
While I think, and obviously so, Jackie is the greatest vocalist from any tv talent show. However, Grace may well be the best, greatest, not sure what word to use, but greatest natural musical talent of any tv talent show..AGT, AI, Voice, X- Factor and whatever. Her voice is wonderful for starters and absolutely matches her music. Her phrasing, dynamics from soft to powerful..and growling at that are fabulous. Her arrangements are stellar. Her changing pace outstanding. Her ability to emote isn't surpassed. Her lyrics are great due her social awareness which is brilliant for her age. Very introspective young girl. Her messages are premium. I loved it that in writing her finale "Clay" she was originally writing about how bullies affected and changed people, but then realized her message couldn't be of a bully winning, so she changed the theme to about being stronger and rises above bullies. Also she sure now's how throw hooks in there without getting cutsie, but at the same time having a nice melody. Her performance and delivery is outstanding. I have no clue of another talent competition with an individual with such a wide spectrum of talent. She's the complete package. While Simon may think she's the next Taylor Swift, Even better I'll go with what Howies said, she's the next Bob Dylan.
greatest natural musical talent ? I don't watch those shows but I don't see or hear great yet , Emily Bear is far her match , and at age 6 , time will tell if she is just odd or not like others but will it remain ? Jackie was WOW at ten and now at 16 has 400 seats being filled , her Voice has not left her

Excellent Lyric video for Clay on Grace's new EP...
Very nicely done. So 'poor diction' works for her.. reminds me of Jackie criticisms in the past. I didn't mind not clearly picking out every word, it was the sound of Jackie's voice that was captivating. Here too. The lyrics can be taken to heart by Jackie when you think back to her accounts of bullying and junior high jealousy.
Anyone else watched any of Grace's videos (from AGT this year or on-line)?
I find myself captivated at her talent, not a classical singer, or conventionally pop (she plays the Ukulele), not a vocal powerhouse either but she has some pretty good lyrics and at 12 years old, that kind of surprised me.
Wow, I had no idea Grace was on here. I didn't know we had a place for other artists. I was just looking for a place to make a big stink. I put a "button" photo on MY FB page of Grace and some dumbass jumped my doo doo about it being Jackie's page ! It was MY page !! and I put who ever I want on it. I do not think Grace sings very good, but she did win AGT. So who am I to say. I love designing button for kids. Dads from all over the world have asked me to make their daughters buttons. I put this one on my facebook page saying "cute kid".
rickolsen: My cole slaw is gone. I've got half the Greek pasta salad and potato salad left. I'm not supposed to eat pasta or potatoes, but my doctor said I can eat them in moderation. When you are diabetic you can't eat anything good or cheap. I eat what I want.

rickolsen: My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the loveseat here in the livingroom with me. I'm watching football and munching corn chips. If you like corn chips get Great Value corn chips at Walmart. They are really good.

rickolsen: It is 10:00 am. My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the love seat. I didn't give them gravy dinner because they didn't ask for it. When they do I will give it to them. I'm watching football.

rickolsen: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner. Prime filet chicken. They like that kind. They are gobbling it down. They will be sleeping soon. I'm watching football.

Willyiam: May your Brother RIP!!

rickolsen: Thanks. I haven't seen, or spoken to my brother since my biological mother's funeral in 2009. I was adopted and didn't meet my biological family until 20 years ago when I was 44. We were never close. I see my biological father once in awhile.

rickolsen: One of my sisters found me. I didn't go looking for them. My cats are all sleeping. I'm watching football, and I'm hungry, so I'm making a big pot of stew. Of course it has mushrooms and lots of garlic.
Feb 18, 2020 18:37:03 GMT -5
rickolsen: My stew is so good I wish I could share it with you. I'm glad Agog suggested I cook my own food. I'm a good cook, it's cheaper, tastes better, and it's better for you. I love to cook so it works out perfectly.
Feb 18, 2020 18:55:35 GMT -5
rickolsen: I would cook for my cats, but they need cat food from the store. It has all the minerals and nutrients they need including taurin for good health. You should resist the temptation to feed your cat or dog people food. Give them the pet food they need.

rickolsen: All 3 of my cats are in the livingroom with me. Brandie is on the loveseat. Phoenix is on the arm of the arm chair and Sampson is on the couch. Today is trash day. I have to run a few errands and then I'm going to put out my trash.

nipper: So Jackie's part in Disney dream weddings will air this coming Friday I believe on Disney + channel. Does anyone have that channel? I believe it is an streaming channel!
Feb 23, 2020 8:45:31 GMT -5
nipper: Does anyone have a hunch on what the exciting collaboration Jackie talked about last month that will happen this year?
Feb 23, 2020 8:46:56 GMT -5
johnnyb: Sorry Nipper, Jackie fans have left the building, head over to Jackie Amazon if you want to have a conversation or find some news on Jackie's career. Unfortunately Rick has lost interest in Jackie and now only wants to talk about his cats. 😺
Feb 23, 2020 14:27:13 GMT -5
nipper: I see that. As an Ice breaker should I talk about my cat who died in October?
Feb 23, 2020 20:54:02 GMT -5
jamesn: Sounds like a good idea - at least it would be different!
Feb 25, 2020 17:18:48 GMT -5
jamesn: Or maybe I should talk about the really nifty 100-year-old WW I trench knife I just received in the mail!
Feb 25, 2020 17:20:21 GMT -5
jamesn: Seriously, I'm hoping Bastet posts a review/account of Jackie's upcoming Colorado concert. I haven't been to one since last February in Lufkin, TX.
