American Idol winner, Maddie Poppe, stops by Seacrest Studios at Children’s Hospital Colorado

Written recap and slider-cam operator: Kayce Wilson, Seacrest Studios Intern
Kid Question Mic: Anna Pavlakovich, Seacrest Studios Intern

Maddie Poppe, American Idol winner, visited the Seacrest Studio at Children’s Hospital Colorado before the Denver show of the American Idol Live! tour. The kids asked questions about everything from amusement park rides, ice cream flavors and eating contests. Carol asked about her upcoming music and she said her next album should be released within the next year.

Maddie brought along American Idol runner-up, Caleb Hutchinson, and they sang a cover of James Taylor’s “You’ve Got a Friend” together. During the traditional BBOY45 game of Backwards Forwards, Maddie was challenged to say the title of her newest single “Going Going Gone” and the phrase “Caleb Lee Hutchinson is cute.” Before taking pictures and signing autographs, Maddie left us with some inspiring words of wisdom, “Always be yourself and always do what makes you the happiest.”

Big thanks to Maddie and Caleb for coming to see us at Children’s Hospital Colorado!
