“American Idol” Fan-Favorite Stuns With Breathtaking Acoustic Performance For Debut Single

Julia Gagnon sings passionately with her eyes closed. Her significant other, Nate Haven, sits and plays the guitar next to her, looking down.

So many talented singers competed in the latest season of American Idol but, ultimately, the winner was Abi Carter! Still, that doesn’t mean that the other contestants aren’t able to use the momentum from the show to further propel their careers. This can be seen in the way runner-up Will Moseley has a song on the charts and is set to open for Zac Brown Band. This can also be seen in the excitement over Julia Gagnon’s new single, Here in Maine.

By beautifully covering songs like Somewhere Over the Rainbow and I Believe, Julia quickly became a fan-favorite. In fact, she made it to the Top 7 of the competition! Now, she’s already releasing new music — but with a twist. She and her significant other, Nate Haven, are officially a singing duo called JULIA. Check out their live, acoustic performance of Here in Maine in the video below!

This beautiful ode to Maine perfectly captures a feeling of nostalgia — even folks who have never been to the state are feeling this way! In fact, one fan even admits, “This makes me want to live in Maine.”
