Wayne State will welcome 2018 American Idol winner Maddie Poppe to campus at 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26, for a concert to close out the first week of classes. The free event, which is open to the public, will be held in the college’s Willow Bowl amphitheater.
Poppe is a multi-instrumentalist - playing the guitar, piano, and ukulele in her unique indie pop and folk music. Hand-in-hand with her American Idol victory, Poppe won a People’s Choice Award for her turn on the show, had Whirlwind hit No. 2 on the iTunes Pop Charts, and went on to become a hot guest on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Live With Kelly & Ryan, and Good Morning America. All of this in addition to touring the country opening for Ingrid Michaelson and headlining her own tours, including a Christmas run that has become a seasonal “must” for Poppe’s fans.
