Season three winner of “The Voice” Cassadee Pope performed a free morning concert at the AT&T; Plaza in downtown Dallas to help promote a new Starbucks Coffee brew.

It was a chilly morning in Dallas as Pope, and her crew were getting ready for their free 8 a.m. concert Tuesday.

The trees surrounding the AT&T; Plaza where the small stage was set up were adorned with light blue lights and the buildings of downtown Dallas stood proud and tall.

“This is definitely the earliest set we’ve ever played as a band,” Pope said to the audience.

People bundled up in scarves and jackets, a few of them carrying signs that read “We loved you since Hey Monday!” the band Pope was previously the lead singer for before becoming a winner on “The Voice.”

Between the music and the coffee, a small crowd gathered in the plaza.

It was small, but it was there, and Pope never failed to acknowledge it.

She constantly thanked the audience, especially for being there so early, and gave a special shout out to the loyal fans who voted for her on “The Voice.”

She explained how since then she’s had the opportunity to tour with Rascal Flatts and will be appearing on the Jay Leno show Wednesday.

“You guys changed my life forever,”she said.

To this Pope got a series of cheering and squeals in return.

The concert was put on in order to help promote the new Starbucks VIA Ready Brew. Several Starbucks tables were set up around the plaza where people were welcome to try free samples of their new coffee.

Starbucks workers dressed in khaki pants and white T-shirts were busy continuously pouring cups of hot coffee throughout the entire performance.

Even Pope expressed how much she and her band enjoy a good cup of Starbucks.

“Being on the road we basically inject ourselves with Starbucks coffee,” she said, laughing.

Wayne Clayton, who stopped by to grab some coffee on the way to work, decided to stick around when he heard Pope singing.

“She’s awesome,” Clayton said.

Clayton works at AT&T; in the plaza, and said it was a great way to start his morning.
