 OH, SAY CAN SHE SING! Canton native sings Anthem at Tigers’ home opener

Grace West prepares to sing the National Anthem prior to Friday’s Detroit Tigers home opener.

Add “Detroit Tigers 2024 Season Opening Day National Anthem performer” to Canton native Grace (Rembinski) West’s already stellar portfolio.

West, currently a native of Nashville where she excels as a songwriter and performer), performed a perfect rendition of the Anthem prior to Friday’s Tigers’ season home opener against the Oakland A’s.

West was the runner-up (out of thousands of entrants) in the spring 2023 edition of NBC’s “The Voice”.

This past fall, she performed for a fundraiser for the Shedneck Foundation at Plymouth’s Saint John’s Resort, where she share experiences of the past several months with SocialHouseNews.com.

West graduated in 2021 from Plymouth High School, where she excelled as a student and member of the P-CEP choir

“The support I received from people back home in Michigan during the show (which aired from March through May) has carried on during the months since it ended,” West said.

‘Super-exciting’

“I’ve been involved in a lot of cool things, including performing at the Ford Fireworks show in downtown Detroit and events like tonight at Saint John’s. It’s all been super-exciting.

“I’ve also been writing songs that I will release soon.”

West said she’s still adjusting to the stardom that accompanies appearing on a show like “The Voice”, which generates audiences in the millions.

“I get a lot more double-takes than I used to, especially when I’m back home,” West said, smiling. “I was at Fed-Ex in Plymouth the other day printing something out and the guy helping me recognized me. We got into a full conversation about the show, which was fun.

“Everybody who recognizes me is very nice. It’s crazy how excited people get. There are a lot of super-fans of ‘The Voice’. They ask what Blake (Shelton) is like, what was it like being on the show. It’s been a really fun experience.”
