'Voice' winner Cassadee Pope, Big Time Rush to appear at MOA


The winner of Season 3 of the NBC singing competition "The Voice" and the boy band stars of the Nickelodeon series "Big Time Rush" are making stops at the Mall of America in Bloomington next week.

Country singer Cassadee Pope, who bested Terry McDermott and Eagan's Nicholas David for "The Voice" title in December, will perform at the MOA Rotunda Monday at 2 p.m.

Pope is expected to sing her new single "Wasting All These Tears" and other songs from her debut album that will be released in the fall.

Meanwhile, Kendall Schmidt, Carlos Pena, James Maslow and Logan Henderson of Big Time Rush will be signing copies of their new album "24/seven" Thursday starting at 4 p.m. at The Patio, which is located in the southwest corner of Nickelodeon Universe.

To be eligible for the signing, fans must obtain a wristband for the event by purchasing a copy of "24/seven" at Best Buy in the mall, which starts Tuesday at 10 a.m.

No performance is planned, but the group is returning to Minneapolis Aug. 10 for a concert at Target Center with fellow Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice.
