Singer Madilyn Paige recently visited BYU-Idaho to perform at the Power to Become Conference.
She got her start in the music industry when she appeared on The Voice when she was a sophomore in high school. In an interview with BYU-Idaho Radio, she said she had stage fright when she started, but being on the show helped her get through it.
“It showed me what I was capable of doing. It showed me that I can do hard things,” she said. “It pushed me so far out of my comfort zone that there was no going back.”
Paige’s experience on The Voice didn’t cure her stage fright completely, but it opened a lot of doors for her in the music industry. She has since done a lot of work with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, released singles and albums and performed at several venues.
She said she has continued to grow as a musician and a person. Last year, she made a choice to be more vulnerable with her music, which has been well-received by her fans.
“From this point forward, I definitely plan to continue to push myself and to be vulnerable—to be real—because people want realness,” she said.
