The 21-year-old is about to enter her senior year at the famed Berklee College of Music in Boston, making her a top choice for the gig.

To perform at the ceremony, Alex Veda Ortiz wore a Khaite white sundress with a drop waist skirt and raw-edge ruffle accents. The piece’s mid-calf skirt showed off the singer’s white pointed-toe slingback pumps.

She accessorized the look with a long white beaded necklace layered with a gold chain necklace, a white beaded bracelet and gold chandelier earrings. Veda Ortiz also wore a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses with the look.

The Skechers campaign star’s daughter wore her curly hair natural. Her long royal blue acrylic nails were on display as she gripped the microphone, adding a pop of color to her look.
