Colts Neck Honors Jacquie Lee
Jacquie Lee, the runner up on NBC’s ‘The Voice,’ was honored by her Jersey hometown on Saturday night.
The Colts Neck Township Committee recognized the 16-year-old’s achievement during the annual reorganization meeting. Proclamations were presented by Mayor Russell Macnow, Monmouth County Freeholder Director Lillian Burry, State Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth) and Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande (R-Monmouth).
On her Twitter feed, Lee called it a “proud moment” and said that Jan. 4 was “Jacquie Lee Day” in Colts Neck.
“The hometown support means the most to me,” Lee said. “It’s been a blessing, thank you guys.”
The junior from the Ranney School in Tinton Falls tells TVLine.com that her next step is to “keep the momentum going, hit it while it’s hot, and work my ass off pretty much for the next year.”
She joined “Voice” winner Tessanne Chin and third place finisher Will Champlin on a Tournament of Roses Parade float to perform “Tumblin’ Down.”
