Grace VanderWaal is set to appear in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and she want's everyone to come over and watch. The "America's Got Talent" star has captured the hearts of fans and has gained a lot of followers after she won the last season. She has also signed up to a record deal and her first ever ep entitled "Perfectly Imperfect" is now available for pre-orders via iTunes.
The 12-year old ukuleleist from Suffern, New York is not new to the annual parade and she's simply delighted that this year she is going to be a part of it. She excitedly posted this news on her official Twitter page.
Cinema Blend announced the lineup of performers for Macy's 90th annual Thanksgiving Day Parade. Aside from Grace, veteran performers Tony Bennett and Sarah McLachlan will also be there. Kelsea Ballerini, Regina Spektor, Aloe Blacc, Chloe X Halle, Easton Corbin, Jacob Whitesides, Maddie & Tae and more will also be present.
Macy's will also honor the winners of the Rio Olympics this year. Gold medalists Laurie Hernandez, Claressa Shields and Michelle Carter will be at the parade along with US Paralympic Gold Medalists Mikey Brannigan and Gianfranco Iannotta.
Organizers of the Thanksgiving Day Parade advise spectators to arrive not later than 7 a.m. to get a good spot to watch Grace and all the other performers. New Yorker Tips said that the best viewing area is on Central Park West while performances will be at 34th St. A free balloon inflation viewing is available from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. along 77th and 88th St. between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue.
Meanwhile, Grace VanderWaal would like to thank people who have pre-ordered "Perfectly Imperfect" and those that watched her new video. The next Taylor Swift, dubbed by Simon Cowell, is very active online. She recently announced a bonus coffeehouse version of her song "Missing You" from the Walmart version of her "Perfectly Imperfect" ep. She's been getting a lot of ukuleles from fans lately that she pleaded her followers to stop. Followers are also sending her artwork and she has included these in the lyric video of her song "I Don't Know My Name."
