Maddie Poppe returns with new music and a home state tour this holiday season. Her new EP Christmas From Home features classic interpretations of “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” “Sleigh Ride,” and “Jingle Bell Rock” among others. To bring the new music to life, Maddie will embark on a tour through Iowa to showcase her new EP in addition to her original material, including a stop in Sioux City, Iowa on Thursday, December 17 at the Orpheum Theatre.
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 Radio Disney Music Awards, and performing at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, the 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” also swept radio charts, reaching #17.
