Ada LeAnn from Battle Creek, Michigan will soon be representing the state of Michigan on NBC's new TV show "American Song Contest".

Ada was discovered by NBC producers on Reverb Nation. She told Wood TV how she got into music by writing poetry in middle school and eventually put those words to music.

I morphed into indie pop, bedroom pop-style music and this has been what I’m really passionate about, my songwriting.
