Thirteen-year-old singer/songwriter Grace VanderWaal unveils the official video for her infectious song “Moonlight” today. Featuring a concept that was visualized by Grace herself, the video was filmed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and directed by Blythe Thomas. Watch the video below. http://smarturl.it/MoonlightVideo. “Moonlight” is a taste of what’s to come on Grace’s debut album due to release later this year.
“I had so much fun making my very first music video. I really wanted a visual aspect to show the story behind the song which is about having a friend go through depression and seeing them change as a result of it,” Grace says. “You guys were really supportive about the song and I’m so thankful for that. A lot of people go through depression so if you know someone who is, please try to reach out and let them know that you’re there for them. The song is like a walk down memory lane and remembering just last year when everything was so magical that it almost felt like you were dancing in the moonlight. I hope you guys enjoy!”
Following in the theme of her music video, which includes appearances from many of Grace’s friends and her sister, Grace is set to participate in DoSomething.org’s ‘Treat Yo Friends’ campaign. The mission of the campaign is very close to Grace’s heart and is all about celebrating your friends and what makes them unique to combat social isolation and encourage individuality.
Grace was also recently nominated for Choice Next Big Thing for Teen Choice 2017.
