Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
Adley Stump stepped on stage, took the microphone and brought the crowd to its feet with her rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” during the “Key To Tomorrow” Leadership Conference kickoff on July 13 at the Raleigh Convention Center.
Her performance reminded people of why America fell in love with her sound on the hit NBC show “The Voice.”
Stump, a contestant on “The Voice” and graduate of Oklahoma State University, joined The Alliance in April along with long-time boyfriend Dustin Dickson. She said being in the music business wasn’t always glamorous, and NAA provides her with an opportunity outside of creating music.
“To be so new in this organization and have the opportunity to get on stage and sing the national anthem was cool,” Stump said. “Stephen and Hollie Davies have taken us under their wing and we got to spend some time with them in Raleigh.”
Stump wasn’t the only famous face at the three-day event. Author and motivational speaker Brian Tracy was the keynote speaker, war veteran and author Clebe McClary shared his inspirational story and National Agents Alliance honored some special guests from Duke Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Miracle Network.
Stump, who brought three members of her team to Raleigh, N.C., said spending the weekend around the leadership of National Agents Alliance was great.
“It was a fantastic recharge and it reminded us of why we are doing what we are doing,” Stump said. “It was great.”
It was only the third time Stump had performed the national anthem in front of a large audience, but “The Voice” alum said the National Agents Alliance team made it a memorable experience.
“It was a great opportunity for me,” Stump said. “I don’t get as nervous on stage now, but I am new on the team, so it was a huge honor for me to be up there in front of our top people. It was really special.”
Stump is currently working on a new project, which she hopes she can share with the world this fall. For more information on Stump, visit http://www.AdleyStump.com.
