Posted: Updated:

American Idol winner and Iowa native Maddie Poppe is coming back to the Hawkeye state.

She will perform at Cedar Rapids' Market After Dark on August 25th.

Her performance will start at 6:30 p.m. on the main stage.

The Market After Dark event will also have a variety of vendors and street entertainment. 

Maddie Poppe posted a message on her Facebook Page yesterday. 

Here is what she said: 

"I don’t even know what to say. I couldn’t have dreamt of a more perfect night. Thank you to all of America for believing in me when I didn’t even believe in myself. A year ago I was lost and uncertain how I would be able to make this happen for myself. I cried and worried and wondered if this dream would ever pan out for me. So many times I contemplated giving up, but at the last second my saving grace came through when @americanidol dropped into my life. Not only has this show given me a platform to build my career on, but it has given me countless lifelong friends who I’ll love and cherish forever. All of these things and so much more, but one of the best gifts it’s given me is Caleb Hutchinson. This guy captured my heart from the start and showed me what love truly means. I’ve never cared for or adored another person so much, @calebleemusic you mean so much to me and I’m so blessed to be able to have had you alongside me throughout this journey and hopefully for many more moons to come, xo. Thank you everyone, this is truly everything I’ve ever wanted and I absolutely CANNOT believe this is my life. So blessed, so grateful. Thank you. ??"
