Alana Grace is an American actress and singer-songwriter who is best known for her song “Black Roses Red” featured on the soundtrack of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

Alana Grace was born in Los Angeles, California, but moved with her family to Nashville, Tennessee at the age of 6.[1] Music has been a tradition in her family (with both her father and grandfather having worked as performers) – and music was a focal point in her upbringing. In Nashville, she attended Harpeth Hall – a girls’ school with a national clientele and a strong performing arts program, counting Amy Grant and Reese Witherspoon among its alumnae.

In 2002, at the age of 14, she was one of seven finalists (chosen by music industry professionals) at the second annual Nashville Grammy Showcase, hosted by the Nashville Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS).

A versatile performer, she is primarily a singer-songwriter, but has also studied dance and has acted in various television productions, including an NBC Movie of the Week and several TV specials, among them a TNN Entertainment Special. On June 1, 2005, she also performed her song “Black Roses Red” on The Today Show on NBC.

From the age of 12, she has been active in supporting the Children’s Miracle Network, which does fundraising for children’s hospitals, such as through the Celebration Broadcast, a televised fundraising event at which she has performed. Other benefit performances include ones for the Grand Slam for Children and the James Redford Institute for Transplant Awareness. Alana studies vocal training with Brett Manning.

She released her second album, With One Word, on Fragile Heart Records on April 10, 2009. Alana performed on the entire Vans Warped Tour to promote this release.

In March 2010, a new Alana Grace song, “7 Month Itch,” from her upcoming third album, premiered on her official website for streaming. The song has more of a rock feel, and less electronica or pop than her other songs, which is how her upcoming album is going to be, according to Grace.

Currently, Alana Grace is the lead vocalist of the band This Is She (formerly known as TOY). This Is She’s history goes back to Warped Tour 2009, when Alana Grace’s earlier solo project was playing the same stages as After Midnight Project, which included members Ryan Folden (drums) and Christian Paul Meadows (guitar). Grace found herself in need of a full band in 2011 and enlisted Folden and Meadows following the dissolution of After Midnight Project. This Is She embarked on a European tour with Italian Goth Metal band Lacuna Coil in October/November 2012. Some time after this tour This Is She went on an ongoing hiatus. As of 2013 Alana’s musical focus is on working as a DJ.
