Leslie Grace is a budding Latina artist from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, who was originally born to Dominican parents in New York. She began her musical career performing for her local church group, where she exercised her singing talent in both English and Spanish. While Leslie Grace has now begun to move out of Gospel in favor of the musical genres of Latin and R&B, her strong soulful voice continues to be present.
The hit single “Will U Still Love Me Tomorrow” fuses Leslie’s R&B singing style with bachata music as she stunningly reinterprets the classic tune by The Shirelles. She does a wonderful job of artistically mixing her English and Spanish lyrics, creating a captivating Spanglish bachata track that is easy to fall in love with.

Another song worth checking out is her very latest, “Day One.” In this piece, Leslie Grace seems to effortlessly hit a wide range of vocal notes that I would describe as a mixture of both the soulfulness of Alicia Keys‘ song, “Unthinkable” as well as the deep passion of Amanda Perez‘s tune, “Angel.” Make sure to keep an eye on this young artist as her talent begins to flourish in the Latin music scene.
