About Tegan Marie:
With a larger-than-life voice, 13-year-old Tegan Marie has been making waves in the Country music scene since the release of her catchy single, “Lucky Me,” last spring. A native of Flint, MI, the burgeoning singer-songwriter donates 100% of the proceeds from the track to children directly affected by the water crisis in her hometown. Continuing the momentum, she stunned listeners last summer with her beautiful rendition of Florida Georgia Line’s #1 smash hit “H.O.L.Y.,” which garnered 17 million plus views on Facebook and led to high-profile media looks including her national morning TV debut on ABC’s Good Morning America and US Weekly's “Buzzzz-o-Meter” feature. She also caught the attention of the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team who invited her to perform the national anthem at their last home game prior to the Olympics. To date, Tegan has shared the stage with Country stars Hunter Hayes, Thomas Rhett, Cam and Chris Stapleton as well as honoring Smokey Robinson with a lively performance of “My Guy” as part of the PBS’ star-studded special Smokey Robinson: The Gershwin Prize. Discovered by the popular Gen Z girl platform Sweety High, Tegan first shared her videos on their site when she was only 7 years old. Her sweet, clean vocals and sensitive interpretations now have girls (and moms) across the nation clamoring for more. In their words, she is “your new obsession.”
