Support for Addison Agen has started showing up on signs at businesses around Fort Wayne.

The Fort Wayne 16-year-old has sung her way into the top 10 finalists this season on “The Voice,” the hit NBC vocal talent show.

She sings during the show at 8 p.m. Monday to try to get to the top 8. Addison and the other competitors will find out who stays and who goes home during a results show at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

“The Voice” airs locally on Fort Wayne’s NBC, Channel 21.2.

During the early weeks of the show, which were pre-recorded, Addison advanced by impressing her celebrity coach, Adam Levine of pop group Maroon 5. For the past two weeks, shows have been broadcast live and viewers have decided which artists continue in the competition by voting during an overnight period.

So far, voting by local fans, family and friends has kept Addison safe and moving on to the next round of the show.
