Hudson Valley Singing Sensation To Perform At Thanksgiving Day Parade
A child from the Hudson Valley, who won America’s hearts, will be performing at the 2016 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Grace Vanderwaal is joining Tony Bennett and more as performers in the Macy’s 90th Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.
Vanderwaal, 12, from Suffern was this year’s winner on “America’s Got Talent.” The ukuleleist won the nation over with her songwriting and singing skills.
The 12-year-old shocked and blew away the judges this summer on "America’s Got Talent" when she sang an original song with a Ukulele. Judge Simon Cowell then called her the next Taylor Swift!
Before her goose-bump inducing performance, the young singer told the judges that most of her friends didn’t even know that she sings. When asked if she thought she could win the competition she said “miracles can happen, so possibly.”
If you want to see Grace perform at parade, officials recommend you arrive no later than 7 a.m. on Thanksgiving. Many say Central Park West is the best viewing area.
Of course, you can avoid the traffic, cold, and potential Thanksgiving Day Hudson Valley snowstorm and enjoy the parade from the comfort of your own home!
