We are very excited to have Iowa native, Maddie Poppe, back in Okoboji!
Maddie fell in love with music at a young age, learning to play guitar, ukulele and piano and in 2016, Maddie released her self-produced debut album, “Songs from the Basement.” After years of performing locally in Iowa, she decided to audition for American Idol stealing 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, and performing 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.
