It has always been said that Texas grows things bigger than anywhere else and boy does that hold true for the big voice of Kadie Lynn. Kadie Lynn is the big voice of Texas and once you hear this beautiful young lady sing you will understand why. Kadie Lynn is only ten years old and already has a voice that can not be matched by someone twice her age. This girl will keep you in amazement and enjoying every note she sings. Kadie Lynn has the power and skill to make you cry or make you pat your feet to the beat, she is the new star of Texas and she is shinning bright. Just like the Alamo, Kadie Lynn will stand the test of time and brighten people’s lives for a very longtime to come.
Kadie Lynn took right off in her journey at the ripe old age of two. At two years of age Kadie Lynn made her debut performance at the Tolosa Baptist church. It was not long after the church that she made her first stage performance at the Hayseed Opry. Then by the age of five she had auditioned and made her way to the Rodeo City Music Hall in Mesquite. However, here more recently she performed at the Rodeo City Music Hall singing, “Angel”. This song truly shows off what her brilliant voice can do. Angel is a hard song to sing and takes a great deal of control to pull it off, which most adults cannot do correctly and yet here is Kadie Lynn at nine years old singing it beautifully. This is just outstanding, and she holds the entire audience in her hand the whole way, not a sound was made, only a true artist with true talent can do this, and wow just brilliant.
Kadie Lynn has spent a great deal of time on stage since she began, and in all of her performances the professionalism she has you would think she had been performing for thirty years. It is obvious when watching she has gained a lot of respect from those who come to listen.
In 2014 Kadie Lynn performed both at the Arlington Music Hall, and the Grapevine Opry. It is a very hard and lengthy process to get to perform here, but Kadie’s big voice pulled it off.
Kadie Lynn loves to perform and she does her part for charity. She has sung at many benefits, and is always willing to use her talent to help those in need. She has also performed for the Shipp Family Gospel Cruise Fest on a cruise ship and in the Bahamas. She is an annual entertainer for the SFGCF and you know she owns the place when she is on that stage. Kadie Lynn performs because she loves lifting up people’s spirits and what a better place to do that than a Gospel show.
Kadie Lynn has sure been putting a lot of smiles on people’s faces with that amazing voice of her’s, but that voice has won her several awards also. She has come in 1st place in 3 karaoke contests and two years ago she competed for the Gun Barrel City July Fest. At this contest she did not win, but was asked to come back and opened for Kevin Fowler and Vanilla Ice, and did so 2 years in a row. She also competed in a contest for Enjoy Radio where the listeners called in to vote for who they wanted to perform at a gospel concert.
Kadie Lynn was in the top eight and got to perform at the gospel concert on stage,in Garland Texas, with some very well-known gospel artists. Kadie Lynn competed for two years in a row for the Rural American Idol where she won 1st place in her division and 2nd, 3rd overall. This won her a cash prize plus an all expense paid trip to the National Farmers Union Convention where she performs along with the other 1st place division winners.She has won Female Vocalist 2 years in a row , Guitarist , and

She has also been on three different radio stations, The Ranch, Texas Red Hot Radio, and Texas Gospel Radio,Big Star 97 , and many more.
If Kadie Lynn were a commodity sold in the markets today, is there any doubt that you would be all in on that one by now? Probably not. Just ask “Mr Talent Finder” himself, Simon Cowell of America’s Got Talent. At the speed of light, this adopted 14-year-old, Texas home grown hick town sensation, whose parents have been all in since she was 3 years old singing every verse of “Amazing Grace” in front of their little church, has come a long, long way in a very short time. Her blastoff to stardom is nothing short of a certainty to anyone that has paid attention. Her accolades are staggering to date, for anyone at any age as an artist, much less a 14-year-old girl from Kemp, Texas!
