SUFFERN, N.Y. -- After a whirlwind week of TV appearances and well-wishes from famous celebs, Suffern's Grace VanderWaal has received the best gift of all--a recording contract with Columbia Records, according to Billboard Magazine.

The 12-year-old singer, songwriter and ukulele player, who won "America's Got Talent," will be joining other greats including Bruce Springsteen, Adele, and One Direction, along with a host of others, said Billboard.

Dubbed the next Taylor Swift, kingmaker Simon Cowell described her as "very smart" and a "calm, focused girl," added Billboard.

Locally VanderWaal will be honored with a parade in Suffern on Oct. 1 where she will be presented with the "Key to Rockland County."

Up next, the tween is scheduled to perform on three dates at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas beginning Oct. 27 to Oct. 29.

Cowell said her fans should expect a much bigger announcement in the near future, added Billboard.
