Artist Bio

Maddie Poppe is a 22-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 Songs From The Basement, which she wrote, produced and recorded alongside her father, Trent. Maddie had been performing locally in Iowa for over five years when she decided to audition for American Idol which she calls her “saving grace.” As she continued through the competition, she ultimately 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.”
