Fort Wayne's Addison Agen to sing Sara Bareilles' "She Used to be Mine" for The Voice Live Rounds
LOS ANGELES, Ca. -- (Fort Wayne's NBC News) Monday night, Fort Wayne's own Addison Agen will take the stage in the live shows on NBC's The Voice.
"It's been very tiring, but it's so, so, so worth it," she said. "I'm so excited for my performance!"
Addison has chosen a special song for Monday night's performance.
"I will be singing, 'She Used to be Mine by Sara Bareilles,' she revealed. "It was on my dream list of songs I wanted to sing for the show because it's such an influential song. There's not a single line in the song that isn't important for everyone to hear."
NBC's The Voice released footage late last week of Addison talking to her coach, Adam Levine about her song choice. If his reaction is any indication, America is in for another amazing performance.
"First off, I'm obsessed with you," Adam said to Addison. "I wish you could teach people to do what you do."
[I'm] Literally so excited because this whole week has been building up, building up, [and] building up," Addison said.
Monday's performance will have been a long time coming - from the Blind Auditions back in September to soon performing live in front of millions.
"I have no clue what to except with so many people, but now the audience actually knows who I am," she said. "It's going to be a new experience."
Addison's performance comes as support for her grows especially in Fort Wayne.
Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry had a special message for her saying" Addison, we're all rooting for you, all 265,000 people in this wonderful city of Fort Wayne," he told Fort Wayne's NBC. "We're all behind you and wishing you the best of luck."
"That's incredible and I'm so blessed to be from that size of a town," Addison said. "I've gotten so much love from Fort Wayne it's been beyond anything I've ever expected."
The top 12 artists will perform Monday at 8 p.m. Addison will need to get enough votes from America to avoid being cut as the field of singers will be narrowed down to eleven on Tuesday night.
