Big-voiced Grace Kinstler finished in 3rd place on American Idol earlier this year. Since then, she moved from Boston, where she attended Berklee College of Music, to Los Angeles. Now, the singer shares a new song with her fans, in a clever way.

Katy Perry wondered what kind of music Grace would make after American Idol. Grace lets her know.

Apparently, Grace remembers the advice and comments judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan gave to her on the show. While revealing a new demo clip,  Grace calls back to something Katy said to her after her performance of Pharrell William’s “Happy.”

After Katy reminded Grace that she suggested the singer choose “iconic” songs to showcase her talents, she remarked, “I’m just thinking about what kind of record you’re going to make after American Idol,” Katy added, “I know it’s going to sound good…that’s what I’m trying to tap into. Who are you as an artist?”

And Grace has an answer for her right here. 

“It got me thinking…and it got me very excited for when I could release original music after the show.” Grace posted on Instagram. She added “I’m so excited to share this il demo with you guys!”

Grace plays a bit of  “When I’m Falling.” She thanks Katy for the constructive criticism.

The song is a big ballad called “When I’m Falling.” Grace cheekily wrote, “Thanks Katy Perry for the constructive criticism!”

Speaking of Tik Tok: Grace is on all the social medias, where she posts clips of song covers and more. She also seems to have a few sponsorships going already. Check out her cover of Wicked’s Defying Gravity HERE. Check out Grace’s Tik Tok at gracekinstlerofficial. 

“I’m most excited about getting in the room with a lot of different people,” Grace told MassLive back in July after her move to L.A., “And writing with people who are more experienced than I am.” The singer has already released two EPs, so what comes next is a continuation of a journey she’s been on for awhile.

“I have written songs, I’m still writing,” Grace said, “But to be able to take songs that I want to release but aren’t quite ready yet [and give] to somebody who has been doing this for longer and has more experience with it, I’m excited for that.”
