Grace Kinstler dedicated performances or song selections to her father, who died suddenly in February 2020, during every episode of “American Idol.” He’s at the center of it now, as she works on her first album. “The goal with that project is really just to encapsulate the journey that I’ve been on since my dad’s passing,” she told MassLive. “That was the biggest event in my life.”
Following, she finished third during “American Idol’s” 19th season at Berklee College of Music in Boston. The Berklee College of Music student moved to Los Angeles over the summer to start her music career and has been active doing so. It’s been a whirlwind for Kinstler, who added that despite the worldwide pandemic, she’s learned a lot.
“To have that happen, and then the next year ‘Idol’ happens, and then I get to move to LA,” she said, adding that her album is being used as a way “to show the journey that I’ve been on and all the things that I’ve learned throughout these past two years.”
She learned that, in the midst of a long day at work or school, it’s OK to take time out for herself. It’s not necessary to stress about the little things, such as which week’s song choice on “American Idol.”
“I see a lot of people in my life who are older, some younger, but who are still so worried about the little things and they forget the big picture,” she told MassLive. “We forget the big picture, what really matters. And so, for me, the whole goal of this is just to share my experience and hopefully to help someone else realize, ‘Oh, this stuff doesn’t matter. Am I really doing this for myself? Am I doing it for someone else or other people or people that I think are judging me but really aren’t?’” Meet American Idol’s Grace Kinstler: What We Know.

Grace Kinstler’s father also advised her to not compare herself to others. “My dad always told me there’s always gonna be someone better than you and there’s always gonna be someone worse than you but you can learn something from both people,” she told MassLive.
It was, nevertheless, a lot easier said than done when he gave her that counsel. He was just 19 years old when Kinstler died.
“At that age, we still nitpick a lot of things about ourselves. It’s that age where I’m like, ‘Oh, I can’t be this. I can’t be that. I have to look pretty all the time. I have to always do this.’ It’s at an age where you still are trying to live for other people,” she said. “You’re so concerned about what the rest of the world thinks of you that you forget, ‘What do I want?’”
