Hundreds of Stratford residents and fans welcomed Javier Colon to a homecoming at Bunnell High School on Sunday afternoon. The winner of NBC's first season of "The Voice," Colon won a recording contract and $100,000. Colon was selected and coached by Adam Levine of Maroon 5.
Mayor John A. Harkins presented Colon with a Key to the City, and Gov. Dannel Malloy proclaimed July 10 "Javier Colon Day" in Connecticut.
