Although the X Factor finale has come and gone, Mamaroneck's Carly Rose Sonenclar will not be a forgotten star.
This Sunday, Carly will lead a parade in her honor down Mamaroneck Avenue in the Village of Mamaroneck at 2:30 p.m. that will include local police, fire and emergency management services (EMS) departments, as well as cheerleaders and athletic teams from local schools.
Carly and Mayor Norm Rosenblum will speak to her fans and others in the community who have supported the hometown hero at 3:30 p.m.
The 13-year-old singer made it the final round. Tate Stevens, the country music singer competing with Carly in the final round after Fifth Element was eliminated, was declared the winner of X Factor and of a $5 million recording contract.
