FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – Addison Agen, the Fort Wayne teenager who shot to stardom on NBC’s “The Voice,” is asking the community and her fans to rally to her new cause: her new album.
Agen finished second in Season 13 of the national singing competition, then returned home to tend to her education and explore new opportunities in music. The latter included the chance to perform as an opening act for rock legend Bob Seger during his recent concert tour.
Agen’s Kickstarter effort hopes to raise $30,000 in support of the album. By Monday, she has surpassed $11,000 in pledges.
The money, she says, will go toward the costs of producing the album, actual production of the album, promotion, distribution and travel expenses.
“It’s a collection of songs woven together with themes of nostalgia, acceptance, hopefulness and joy,” she said in the Kickstarter appeal. “I hope that you will join me on this journey, and even if you can’t donate, I hope these songs touch your heart like they touch mine.”
