Grace Vanderwaal adores her precious pug puppy, Frankie, so much that she can't help but show him off on social media.
On her Instagram account, the “America’s Got Talent” Season 11 winner shared a video of the dog from their trip together. In the short clip, Vanderwaal is seen petting Frankie’s head while the dog attempts to sleep. She also encouraged her 1.4 million followers on the social media site to follow her dog’s Instagram account.
In a follow-up post, Frankie looks more alert after taking a nap. By the looks of it, the puppy and Vanderwaal are on a plane together.
Meanwhile, Vanderwaal has been traveling back and forth between New York and Los Angeles for work over the past months. It comes as no surprise since she's been busy recording her album and performing shows. The Suffern native just released her first album, “Perfectly Imperfect,” for which a launch party was held.
The album contains four of the tracks that Vanderwaal sang live in “America’s Got Talent” Season 11: “I Don’t Know My Name,” “Light the Sky,” “Beautiful Thing” and “Clay.” A fifth track, titled “Gossip Girl,” is also included in her EP.
Following the release of her album, Vanderwaal told Rolling Stone that they wanted to strike while the iron is hot. She immediately took voice lessons and recorded the tracks, so the album will be available on iTunes less than two months after her win.
Other than her EP, Vanderwaal also received a $1 million grand prize from the producers and creators of the hit NBC reality TV show. While speaking with Teen Vogue, the 12-year-old said that she will donate a certain amount to a music charity. She also wants to have her own treehouse built, and she’s positive it could be done. “I want to go on ‘Treehouse Masters’ and I want to get a treehouse,” she said.
