Watch the premiere of pop music's newest star, Addy

“ This is the most fun I ever had! ”

- Addy

During her long hospital visits to overcome stage IV cancer, Addy would find refuge in music. When she wasn’t too drained from chemotherapy and radiation treatments, she practiced singing and dancing. When she learned that Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic would grant her wish, Addy had the perfect idea: She wished to be a pop star performing “Roar” by Katy Perry (her favorite artist). The lyrics to “Roar” inspired Addy to fight and beat cancer. Her incredible music video celebrates her victory and her wish come true. #addyroar
