JACKSON, MI – A Grass Lake teen, Brayden Lape, who gained national attention for his performances in Season 22 of NBC-TV’s “The Voice,” will lead this year’s Jackson Rose Parade.
Brayden Lape has been picked as grand marshal of the parade, which steps off at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 4, in downtown Jackson.
Lape, 16, was chosen as grand marshal because of the impact his performances had on rallying the community together.
The Grass Lake native and Grass Lake High School sophomore, placed fifth earlier this year on “The Voice.” Since then, he has been working on his music career, while focusing on sports and school. He recently released the single “Hand It To Ya,” a song he wrote.
The 2023 Rose Parade will follow the same route as last year, which organizers said was changed to bring more people out to watch. It starts on Blackstone Street and will travel east on Michigan Avenue.
However, this year, the parade will end at Mechanic Street due to construction on Cortland Street.
Organizers will also invite food trucks to Horace Blackman Park, 212 W. Michigan Ave., after the parade.
