Artists get crowds singing along on a daily basis, but it isn’t every day that new country artists start singalongs of epic proportions. While on a visit to Texas last week, Cassadee Pope led over 6,500 fans in a singalong during a benefit show, KAJA’s St. Jude Jam.
‘The Voice’ winner is still new on the country scene, but she’s taking the country world by storm! Her debut solo album ‘Frame by Frame’ debuted at No. 1, and her debut single from the album headed straight for the Top 10. Apparently, country fans around the country know the song so well that when she performed it at the event, she got them all singing along.
Pope sat on stage with her guitar in hand as she belted out the words to ‘Wasting All These Tears,’ the enthusiastic crowd singing along with her live at San Antonio’s famous Cowboys Dancehall. Pope’s attendance helped to raise more than $90,000 for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
If you watch the video, you’ll see why Pope recently went Platinum with her debut single. And, it’s the first time a solo female country artist has gone Platinum with a debut single since Taylor Swift hit the scene.
The 24-year-old also took time during the St. Jude event to perform her newest single, ‘I Wish I Could Break Your Heart.’ Pope wasn’t the only country singer on the bill during the St. Jude Jam — Darius Rucker, Scotty McCreery, Randy Houser and Frankie Ballard also were able to perform to the crowd and help raise money for such a great cause.
