For the city of Fort Wayne, Jan. 17, 2018 is Addison Agen Day. 

Mayor Tom Henry celebrated the day with a proclamation before a large crowd in Citizens Square Wednesday morning. He was joined by Agen, who placed second on the latest season of NBC's 'The Voice.'

"I noticed that many of my staff members are here, and I never get that kind of applause when I have a meeting with you, so I guess that tells me something," Henry joked after he and Agen appeared to thundering applause.

Agen said she never expected a day to be named after her before presenting Henry with two tickets to one of her upcoming performances at the Embassy Theatre. 

"This past year has been more than life-changing, and I'm honored to be before you all, doing what I'm doing, doing what I love and doing it in the city that I love," Agen said.
