Maddie is truely a magnificent vocalist . When I first listened to her ,I knew there was something special. Her voice was made for country music. Not suprising _ being born in Chattanooga ,Tennesse home of some of the best country singers around. Although she has a great country voice , she has no problem with pop, once you listen to her videos you will see.
She tells me that she began singing around three or four years of age, singing kareoke tunes for family and friends. when she was about five years old she would sing at the beauty salon for other customers , while waiting on her mother. Sometimes she would make as much as ten dollars singing for them and she has not stopped singing since. She has been taking vocal lessons for about two years and has two instructors one in Nashville , which she goes once a month and one in her hometown that she goes to once per week. One of her instructors suggested that she learn to play an instrument , piano or guitar. So she decided on the guitar ( I am sure she will do well ).
Maddie is also a fourth year member of the Chattanooga girls choir and a member of her schools chorus, has performed in the production of , La Boheme , with the Chattanooga Symphony and Opra in 2009, and would love to perform on broadway someday ( with Maddie`s talent I believe she will ). Musical talent runs in Maddie`s family , her great grandmother sang and played the guitar, her dad also plays the guitar and sometimes accompanies her playing and singing. As if all this wasn`t enough to keep her busy she also plays softball ( if she plays like she sings I feel sorry for the other team ).
Maddie`s singing is remarkable , she has passion , emotion and attitude all of this comes right out of her videos and grabs you. You can`t help but feel what she is singing, it brings a smile to her face and warms your heart. This young lady should be extremely proud of herself for what she has accomplished , it is truly remarkable. I know for myself once I heard her , I haven`t stopped listening. I have listened everyday_ and her singing Hallelujah_ is beautiful , I can`t even count how many times I have listened to it. I hope everyone takes time to listen ,you will not want to stop.
