“You deserve better” is the theme of “So Much More,” the first song by Karina Grace Forman, 13, a Milton singer-songwriter. “My heart breaks, but I don’t,” she writes on Instagram.
Karina began writing songs at 11, built on guitar and piano lessons, open mics and inspiration from Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes and R5 videos—and her family. She is currently in 8th grade at Mariner Middle School.
The reflective pop prodigy is hoping for a career as a singer-songwriter and warms to the craft “to let my feelings go.” She wants her second song—“Monster,” uploaded in April on her KarinaGraceMusic YouTube channel—to “give voice to people who suffer and encourage them to stand strong.”
