Fort Wayne’s Addison Agen, who finished as runner-up on this season of NBC’s “The Voice” singing talent show, will perform a free concert on Labor Day weekend at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival.

Addison, 16, and her full band will perform Sept. 1 on the Festival Stage at the 2018 Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival in Auburn, according to a news release.

The annual festival features classic cars from around the world each Labor Day weekend to celebrate the assembly and history of Auburns, Cords & Duesenbergs in Auburn. This will be the festival’s 62nd year.

“Addison alongside our Auburns, Cords, and Duesenbergs,” said Amber Jackson, festival chairwoman in the news release, “brings a distinct sense of classical beauty and reverence to this region, and we are proud to be a part of that and join the two together. This kind of limitless beauty has no age, has no boundaries; it exceeds the present, holds roots in our past, and has plenty of promise for the future. This is how we feel about our cars. This is how we feel about Addison.”

Last Sunday, Addison performed two sold-out concerts at the Embassy Theatre. She’ll be in the concert lineup for the Winter Jam Spectacular Christian music concert Feb. 8 and at Fort Wayne Women’s Expo on Feb. 24. Both events will be at Memorial Coliseum.
