‘American Idol’ Winner Maddie Poppe Performs At Special Olympics Opening
American Idol champ Maddie Poppe was on hand last week at the opening ceremonies of the Special Olympics in Seattle. Unfortunately, she didn’t sing the National Anthem but she did perform her new song Going Going Gone.
We first heard this song on the finale of American Idol and she recently released the video for the song. The Special Olympics is an international sporting competition for people with special needs or physical disabilities. I’m sure they really got a kick out of seeing Maddie. I mean, who wouldn’t? She’s amazing. She doesn’t need a big band or flashy effects. It’s just her and a guitar. That’s all she requires to shine.
People often say that the people who win these talent shows don’t often go on to big success. I think Maddie is going to buck that trend. She is so unique and talented that I see her going far.
