LOS ANGELESFeb. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Announced today, the viral independently produced and distributed YouTube animated children’s program “Gracie’s Corner” has been nominated for Favorite Female Creator at the 2023 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.

Created during the height of the pandemic when then 7-year-old Graceyn (now 10) and her siblings had difficulty finding diverse content to watch on television or online during homeschooling. Gracie’s parents, Javoris Hollingsworth, Ph.D., a Chemistry Professor & Arlene Gordon-Hollingsworth, Ph.D., a licensed Clinical Psychologist, decided to take matters into their own hands and create what was missing, and Gracie’s Corner TV was born.

Among the top culturally relevant children’s programs on YouTube, Gracie’s Corner content generates over 80 million monthly views and has 1.3M subscribers. In addition, the brand has become a perennial leader on major social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram, where viral video hashtags show almost 200M views combined. In addition, the Gracie’s Corner station on Spotify averages almost 100K monthly listeners.

“Gracie’s Corner is a cultural phenomenon, and we are humbled, honored, and so proud that so many people can relate to our songs and the mission of Gracie’s Corner. We are completely blown away and excited about being nominated for a Kids’ Choice Award. It means so much to our family to be recognized by our fantastic community.” Javoris “Jay” Hollingsworth – Creator, Gracie’s Corner

United Talent Agency represents the brand.
