Growing up in Mamaroneck, NY, Carly Rose Sonenclar is no stranger to Rye Playland.
“I used to go all the time,” she recalled during a sit-down interview with “The Ralphie Show.” “I haven’t gone in a while for the rides, but my friends and I are going to try and do that.”
But first, Sonenclar has a bit of business to attend to. The 14 year-old star is headlining her first ever concert at the amusement park this Saturday. She follows that up with a performance at the Encore Events Center in Freehold, NJ on Sunday. Info on purchasing tickets can be found on Carly Rose’s official website.
“Some of my friends said they’re going to try to watch me from the Ferris wheel,” Sonenclar said of Saturday’s show. “I don’t know how that’s going to work.”
“The X-Factor” runner-up will head to the west coast in July for a third performance at a place she used to hang out at while she competed on the show: the Universal CityWalk in Los Angeles. Sonenclar divulged that while there, she is also looking forward to recording in the studio. The teenager hopes to write and record on both coasts while traveling this summer.
Sonenclar released her latest cover online about three weeks ago, taking on One Direction’s “Stole My Heart.” She’ll wrap her summer of concerts on August 10 with a headlining gig at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square.
