In 2005, Grace won top prize in a national competition, The WRA Song Competition, sponsored by the Alpha Music Group, in conjunction with the Oberlin College Conservatory, for her song, "Pennies on the Ground", which she co-wrote with Bob Yen Jr. The competition sought songs that addressed peace, love, community and/or speaking out against violence, war, or hate. In 2008, Grace released her debut album, Right At Home, which is a collection of songs influenced by Grace's passion for soul, gospel, jazz, and blues. Be prepared to get your feet moving, soul uplifted, and mind soothed as it takes you to a place where you can be yourself and cast aside the cares of the world.
