MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Mamaroneck Mayor Norm Rosenblum will hold a parade for Carly Rose Sonenclar Sunday, Jan. 27.
Carly’s Angels, The Starlighters, Applause, the Mamaroneck Fire Department, Police Department, EMS, school teams, motorcycle escorts and fans will join the Village of Mamaroneck in honoring Sonenclar.
The parade will begin at 2:30 p.m. on Mamaroneck Avenue at Jefferson Avenue. Sonenclar will lead the procession in a car before going to the viewing stands across from Molly Spillane's near Prospect Avenue. At 3:30 p.m. she and Rosenblum will make public statements. The celebration will end at approximately 4:30 p.m.
Thirteen-year-old Sonenclar made it through eight weeks of competition on Fox's "X Factor." She fell short in the final round despite a performance of "Halleluja" that received praise from the show's judges. Her family, friends and classmates showed support throughout the process.
"This girl has got such a huge career ahead of her and we’re really lucky to have found her for this show," judge Simon Cowell said.
