[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Not even 24 hours after Addison Agen covered Joni Mitchell’s A Case of You, the song is #3 on iTunes. The 16-year-old from Fort Wayne, Indiana, who never flew on a plane before The Voice auditions, has become something of a folk hero to millions of young fans around the country.


Addison’s story is like a fairy tale — but do you know the whole story? Here are 10 fun facts about the young phenomenon whom her coach Adam calls “one of the most special singers in the world.”

    1. Addison says Adam taught her “how to take bits and pieces of every genre that I like, and put them together, and make my own unique part of my own genre.”
    2. What is that genre? Addison has described herself as an indie-folk music artist. On her Facebook page, she lists her genre as “acoustic soul.” Whatever you call it, it’s mellow and magical.
    3. Even Carson Daly is a fan. Though he tries to be neutral — or at least equally supportive of each contestant — on last night’s episode he couldn’t help but throw in “Great is great” after Addison’s performance.
    4. In an interview with her hometown paper, Addison revealed that her absolute favorite song to sing is Jealous by Labirinth, a beautiful piano ballad.
    5. She also loves singing Jolene by Ray LaMontagne (her Voice audition song), Wake Up with Me by Gabrielle Aplin, and Delicate by Damien Rice.
    6. Sara Bareilles approved of Addison’s rendition of She Used To Be Mine, from the musical Waitress, which Bareilles wrote.
    7. Addison and two friends perform as VeVox, short for “Vehicle Vox,” because they sing in cars. Check our their fantastic harmonies!
    8. She writes songs, too! You can buy her album here. One reviewer said “Agen possesses both an incredible knack for pop hook songwriting and a voice that seems to carry years of life she has yet to live.”
    9. Her father owns a record store in Fort Wayne, Neat Neat Neat Music & Records, where she sometimes hosts performances and meet-and-greets.
    10. Her mother works several jobs; one of them is providing musical therapy at a nursing home. So Addison has had music in her life for some time.

After her performance of She Used To Be Mine, Adam told her “You are a pillar of class, dignity, and soulfulness that young people can identify with.” Can she finish her incredible Cinderella-like run? Stay tuned…
