A fan favorite from Season 13 of The Voice has launched a KickStarter campaign to fund a debut EP.

She’ll even bake you her special secret recipe chocolate chip cookies if you pledge and chose a rewards package that includes them.

Top 24 finisher Karli Webster is planning a four-track EP of original music — songs she’s written — and hoping to raise $15,000 through KickStarter to make that happen.

She announced the campaign Saturday and by midnight had already received pledges of more than $1,000.

“My mom always told me to ‘shine my light’ and help others shine too,” she writes in her campaign launch. “I know that when I’m creating and performing music is when I shine my brightest.

“I’ve always loved the way music brings people together. Watching people dance, sing, and join together for a song is one of the most beautiful life experiences, and through my debut EP I hope to influence a sense of togetherness and unity.”

One of the special songs she hopes to share is called “Cracks,” about reconciling herself with her parents’ divorce when she was a teenager in high school. She plays a snippet of it during her KickStarter video.

As for the rewards, they start at $10. You’ll need to pledge $200 to get those cookies, but they come with lots of other goodies. Karli’s even putting her ukulele up for grabs, autographed of course.

Now 21 and a student at the University of Southern California, Karli landed a spot on Team Miley Cyrus during Season 13 with a cover of Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain” that cracked the Top 200 on the iTunes singles chart.

She and Addison Agen then scored the highest charting song from the show during the battle round with their recreation of Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.”

Even after her elimination in the playoffs, Karli remained involved in Season 13 as The Voice’s official Facebook Live pre-show co-host along with Mitchell Lee.
