Leslie Grace’s heritage influences her music
Grace’s talent of mixing classic hits from the ’60s with bachata in both English and Spanish has captured the attention of audiences since she released her first single, “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow.”
She co-wrote her second single “Day One,” which is about love.
“What we wrote was basically the first time you feel love. It was inspired by the first time I felt God’s love in its purest form,” said Grace in a Latin Gossip interview.
Born in the Bronx to a Dominican family and having grown up in Yonkers, her heritage and musical influence has combined to form something truly unique.
She became the youngest female singer to reach a Latin radio No. 1 spot with her first single. Her album reached the No. 5 position on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart in its third week of being released.
