Madison has performed for the likes of Dodgers, Rams, Lakers, Kings, and Galaxy fans across Los Angeles, but she is also an accomplished actress and overall entertainer.

While she shared that she absolutely loves singing, Baez also touched on how nervous she gets when performing in front of huge crowds.

“It’s actually really nerve-wracking because I’m singing in front of thousands of people…I get the microphone in my hand and I say ‘You know what Maddie, you’ve got this!’ and I do great!”

Madison has also appeared on shows like Kids Say The Darndest Things, where she performed and received a standing ovation, and even got to do impressions for Tiffany Haddish!

“I got to talk with her. She’s so great, I love her. I even got to do impressions for her. She made me laugh and feel really comfortable.”

When she’s not singing her heart out, Madison is also working hard in the commercial acting world and has even worked on 11 national commercials in the last two years!

Now, she’s gearing up for her breakout acting role, which is really close to her heart as she will be portraying Young Selena in the upcoming Netflix hit Selena: The Series.
