Addison Agen, 'The Voice' Finalist Contestant with Spooner Ties, Takes Second Place
Addison Agen, a 16-year-old from Fort Wayne, Indiana, who made it to the final round on the popular NBC competition “The Voice” finished in second place.
Addison has ties to the Spooner area from her maternal grandmother, Connie Reiter, who graduated from Spooner High in 1967 to her great-grandparents, Matt & Evelyn Reiter as well as many uncles, aunts and cousins.
Terri Reiter, Addison’s cousin, submitted a story about Addison to DrydenWire.com and shared that Addison has been singing since she was 4 years old, and began writing songs at the age of 11. She loves to help her mom, a musical therapist at nursing homes, by singing at nursing homes and getting the residents excited about music.
The finale of The Voice was held this week and Addison came in the 2nd overall of the four finalists. Each of the last four finalists received a Toyota Camry as well; Addison already got the keys to her Camry.
Addison performed "Tennessee Rain" and a duet with the famous Norah Jones.
On Twitter, Addison said, “I couldn’t be more humbled by all of ur kind words! Thank you for letting me be apart of so many of your hearts! This is just the beginning! The work starts today".
