Maddie Poppe is a twenty-two-year-old singer-songwriter from Clarksville, Iowa and Season 16 winner of American Idol. Maddie fell in love with music at a young age, learning to play guitar, ukulele and piano and in 2016, Maddie released her debut album, “Songs from the Basement,” which she wrote, produced and recorded alongside her father, Trent. After years of performing locally in Iowa, she decided to audition for American Idol – a decision she calls her “saving grace.” Ultimately, Maddie stole America’s hearts and was crowned the winner, giving the audience an emotional, overjoyed, and tear stained performance of her single, “Going Going Gone.”
Since her Idol victory, Maddie has been in high demand appearing on multiple TV shows including Jimmy Kimmel Live, Live! with Kelly & Ryan and the 2018 Radio Disney Music Awards. Maddie also performed at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Special Olympics and CMA Fest in Nashville.
Maddie’s sophomore album Whirlwind reached #2 on the iTunes Pop charts and her hit single “Made You Miss” earned #19 on the Hot AC Radio charts. Her sentimental ballad “Not Losing You” swept radio charts as well.
Most recently, Maddie supported Ingrid Michaelson on The Dramatic Tour, an experience she calls a dream come true, and is currently working on new music to release soon. On November 20th, Maddie will be releasing her brand new “Christmas from Home” EP.
