Grace Potter, Our Hometown Diva
Our favorite hometown diva and chocolate lover Grace Potter crushed it last night on VH1′s Divas Salute the Troops. Holding her own with the likes of Katy Perry and performing an amazing duet with Heart, we’re pretty sure Grace picked up a few new fans last night. (so many, in fact, her websitemomentarily crashed right after the show!)
The VH1 Salute the Troops stage has featured legends such as Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, Cher and Mariah Carey. However, the show also has a tradition of giving a boost to up and coming artists like Grace Potter & the Nocturnals and boy, they did not disappoint. Singing the classic “Crazy on You” side by side with Heart frontwoman Ann Wilson, Grace more than held her own!
Ok, so aside from being from Vermont, why are we so excited about Grace’s rocket launch into VH1 stardom? She is also a foodie and chocolate lover and we recently worked together with the band to create their very own chocolate bar called Grace Under Fire. With pistachios and red pepper flakes mixed with dark chocolate, we think you’ll agree this is an apt chocolate bar for likes of Grace and her band.
This bar is a limited edition in a custom designed box that you’ll want to keep around long after you’ve enjoyed the bar. You can buy them online here- pair a couple bars with Grace’s new CD, featuring “Paris (Ooh La La )”and you’ve got a perfect stocking stuffer for the new Grace fan in your life.
Congrats again to Grace Potter and the Nocturnals for making us all so proud!
