Grace Kinstler American Idol
Grace Kinstler is a contestant on Season 19 of American Idol. During her audition, she delivered a memorable rendition of Gladys Knight & the Pips “Midnight Train to Georgia,” which she followed up with the Aretha Franklin‘s “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman after judge Luke Bryan asked to hear more.
She and her dad, Mitch Kinstler, always shared a love of music. When she was 4, and he was sick with cancer, she coped by “fiddling on” piano and singing. “My dad had cancer twice. [Music] was always an outlet for me,” said Kinstler in an interview with the Boston Globe. On karaoke nights, dad’s song was “My Way,” by Frank Sinatra. And he proudly taped little Grace singing the Carole King-written Aretha Franklin hit “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” when she was just 8. The family would watch “American Idol” together, with Grace dreaming of landing on the show. As a teen, she tried out for both “Idol” and “The Voice.” But she never made it. In 2020, Kinstler tried out for “Idol” again. This time, she made it.

I would give anything to turn back the clock just to hold your hand one more time, give you one last hug and tell you how much I love you.
“Thank you for being so invested in my life, and for loving our family more than anyone I’ve ever known. The world would be a much better place if every kid had a father like you, and I wouldn’t have traded my 19 years with you for a lifetime with anyone else. I will find ways to celebrate you every day of my life. Thank you for giving us so much to celebrate. Happy Father’s Day, Dad.”
