Get ready. Washington, D.C. is preparing for one of its biggest events of the year next Friday – the July 4 celebration at the National Mall. And who in the District of Columbia doesn’t look forward to the city’s Independence Day celebration?
This year’s “A Capitol Fourth” concert will be held on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol and what an impressive lineup of performers will be on the show. Tom Bergeron of “Dancing with the Stars” will be hosting. Headliner, the original Jersey boy himself, Frankie Valli, will be joined by songbird Pattie LaBelle and Michael McDonald will lend the distinctive and soulful sound of his voice. Others performers include Jordin Sparks, Sara Evans, Kendall Schmidt and Kelli O’Hara.
The Joint Armed Forces Chorus will celebrate the 200th anniversary of our national anthem by performing a special arrangement of the Star Spangled Banner.
If you can’t be there, don’t be square, catch “A Capitol Fourth” on the live PBS broadcast from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. EDT.
