The Wellington Preservation Coalition congratulates The Voice’s Cassadee Pope. The Wellington resident returned to West Palm Beach last Thursday for her “Hometown Visit” to perform at the expanded Clematis by Night. The evening paid tribute to numerous holiday festivities, vendors and songs.
Although the skies opened for a torrential downpour, the fans did not dwindle as they awaited Pope’s arrival. The singer brought in a crowd in the hundreds, performing The Voice favorites “Torn” and “Over You.”
Pope also performed her favorite holiday classic, “Oh Holy Night,” and concluded with the opening track from her solo self-titled EP, “Original Love.” Pope’s entire band was introduced to the crowd, which consisted of her “West Palm homies,” including bandmates from her previous band, Hey Monday.
Even though Pope has received an immense amount of publicity and success from The Voice, it was clear as she took the stage that she was still humbled by her adoring fans.
West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio presented Pope with a key to the city, and the pair stood tall as they watched lights illuminate the 40-ton sand holiday tree standing 35-feet tall.
“I moved to L.A. about a year and a half ago to pursue my solo career, but there is nothing like coming home to West Palm Beach,” Pope said. “It will always be home for me.”
Pope has been a lifelong resident of Palm Beach County. She attended St. Anne’s School in downtown West Palm Beach for her middle school years, and later attended Wellington High School. Many of her fans at the Clematis by Night show made the trip from Wellington to support their choice for the winner of The Voice.
NBC’s The Voice will continue Monday, Dec. 17. The season finale will air Tuesday, Dec. 18, and the winner will be announced.

Cassadee Pope’s amazing and she’s the best in my opinion on The Voice this season. I honestly think she’s going to win, but one thing reality shows like this have taught me you never know who will win. I think she will do it but only time will tell and votes based on her final performances. I started watching The Voice last season, and it’s one of my favorite on primetime. The only thing’s I work during that time so I have to wait until the next day to watch my shows. My wife and kids were never happy with me taking up all the DVRs to record all my favorite primetime shows. Since my coworker at DISH told me about the DISH Hopper DVR, I’ve been able to get my shows recorded with PrimeTime Anytime feature. Once this has been enabled I get all four major networks recorded nightly to one TV. The wife and kids are happy I’ve freed up the TV’s and they’re no longer stuck watching recordings only. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t benefit from this feature.
