'The Voice' runner-up to perform in Jasper

By Herald Staff

JASPER — Addison Agen, an Americana singer-songwriter best known as Season 13’s first runner-up on NBC’s "The Voice," will perform at the Jasper Arts Center on Friday, Oct. 23, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. A streaming option is also available.

Based in Fort Wayne, the 19-year-old’s raw and heart-wrenching voice welcomes listeners of all kinds to be grateful and self-reflective. Agen’s honest storytelling and simplicity earned her an opening slot with Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band, as well as Kevin Bacon’s The Bacon Brothers in 2019.

Agen’s music transforms lived experiences into songs woven together with themes of nostalgia, acceptance, hopefulness and joy.

“We are thrilled to once again present world-class talent like Addison,” said Kyle Rupert, director of Jasper Community Arts. “While things might look and feel a little different for our patrons, our staff has spent the last seven months researching and planning for this very moment, to once again offer live in person performances. For those that are not quite ready to return to in person events, we are excited to offer the option of streaming Addison’s performance from the comfort of their homes. Either in person or streamed at home, this is not a performance to be missed.”
