Madeline Smith Headlines Benefit Concert at MCCC’s
Kelsey Theatre Sept. 15

8/15/12


West Windsor, NJ -- Local singer, songwriter, and musician Madeline Smith will perform at a benefit concert at Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 2 p.m.  The concert will benefit Families in Transition (FIT), a nonprofit organization that provides transitional housing for homeless families in Mercer County while they transition to self-sufficiency.  Kelsey Theatre is located at the college’s West Windsor campus, at 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Raised in Somerset, Smith’s talent was first discovered by her piano teacher when she was 10 years old.  Through encouragement she began taking voice and guitar lessons, which further proved her talent as a musician.  With a southern family background, she grew up on country music, singing Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash, just some of the music in her repertoire which also includes her own songs. 

Smith has already headlined several benefit concerts in support of community and church organizations, including the 4-H Fair in Bridgewater.  She just put out her first demo and will release her first EP recording in 2013.  This past April, Smith won the American Idol Experience singing competition at Disney World.  As a result she was awarded a Dream Ticket, giving her front-of-line precedence at any American Idol audition in 2012.

Tickets to see "Madeline Smith in Concert" can be purchased online in advance for $12 per person, by clicking here.  Tickets will also be available at the door for $15 per person.  A Chinese auction will also be part of this event. For more information, call Michael Schaefer, FIT Treasurer, at (609) 448-7033, or email gotmike365@verizon.net.
