Whitney Woerz is a 17 year old American singer/songwriter who has made a mark with her talent across radio and online platforms, engaging fans worldwide with a soulful richness and depth that belies her age.
Her recent single “Idea of Her” has been rotating on various Sirius XM channels and terrestrial stations while garnering her over 20MM on YouTube since launching seven months ago. This fall, she joined Brooklyn and Baily’s Digi-Tour as an opening act for the Streamy Award winning duo and social media stars.
Whitney’s gifts come in the form of storytelling to her audiences in an organic way, focusing on the highs and lows of life and the challenges of friendship, love and emotions. Her last single and video “Ghost Story,” was an homage to teens struggling with balance and mental health. The video, directed by Academy Award nominated Liz Garbus, has seen more than 18MM and launched Whitney’s impactful social media presence with her music and musings.
Whitney has appeared on numerous television shows and events supporting her music, including a segment on the nationally syndicated day-time talk show The Doctors bringing attention to her alliance with Glenn Close’s charity, Bring Change 2 Mind - a charity that strengthens mental health awareness and showcases Whitney’s song “Ghost Story”. She held a spot on NBC’s Today Show with an appearance on Elvis Duran’s segment “Artist of the Month” where she performed another of her hits “6 Second Love,” and has performed live on the 2015 American Music Awards red carpet.
