10 Things You Didn’t Know About Leslie Grace

If you haven’t heard of Leslie Grace yet, get ready because this girl is about to become a household name. The 19-year-old Bronx native creates bachata music, a genre of Latin music from the Dominican Republic (where her parents are from). She’s getting attention for combining American pop influences with her Dominican roots, and the result is amazing. Here are some things you should know about this up-and-coming performer:

 

  1. She is the youngest of five siblings.
  2. She was born in the Bronx, but moved to Florida when she was 10.
  3. Her first live performance was in 2012 on Premios Juventud — this has since been referred to as her “big break.”
  4. She’s performing at Radio Disney’s Family VIP Birthday alongside huge stars like R5 and The Vamps. (Do you have your tickets yet?)
  5. She is the first bachata artist to have her song — “Nobody Else Compares To U (Nadie Como Tú)” — featured on Radio Disney.
  6. At 17 years old, she was the youngest female artist to top the Billboard Latin Airplay charts with her cover of “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” by The Shirelles.
  7. She’s a good citizen! At 19, she just voted for the first time and shared her pride with her Facebook fans.
  8. She has a killer sense of style.
  9. She was only 14 when she recorded her first album.
  10. She writes her own music (which we’ll get to hear on her new album, releasing this winter).
