Special Performance by The Rossums!
The Rossums are a family Gospel and Inspirational singing group consisting of four sisters: Ciara, Carissa , Corrinne , and Casey. Their first public appearance was at a wedding vow renewal ceremony for their grandparents in 1995 – this is when their parents noticed their collective singing talent.
They have been presented with the keys to the city by former Mayor John Brenner. They have also sang at the inauguration of former mayor of the City of York, Kim Bracey, and most recently, the inauguration of Governor Tom Wolf. They won Showtime at the Apollo in Harlem New York and went on to make it to the semi final rounds on the 2010 season of America’s Got Talent. They were also contestants on the 2012 season of The X Factor where they made the top 100.
They continue to sing together throughout the local community and surrounding area, always looking to inspire and encourage others through music.
The Rossums are currently working on an EP they expect to release in 2019.
