Happy 4th of July

Today we celebrate the 4th of July, our 240th Independence Day. This is a day full of parades, barbecues, carnivals, picnics, concerts, baseball games, fireworks, family and friends. We celebrate American independence and reflect upon the struggles and sacrifices made by others so that we can enjoy our freedoms today. This fight for freedom is always ongoing and is not limited to a single country.

“My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!” – – Thomas Jefferson

As we celebrate here are some performances from Broadway actors across the nation.

On Your Feet, Doreen Montalvo Mann

Closer to home in Philadelphia, PA from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. – The Wawa Welcome America July 4th Concert takes over the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Headlining will be Leon Bridges, the American R&B and soul singer/songwriter best known for his song “Coming Home.” Hamilton‘s Tony Award winning Leslie Odom, Jr., Yazz (Bryshere Gray) from TV’s Empire, The O’Jays, Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes and other hit makers will lead a tribute to the musical team of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, creators of The Sound of Philadelphia. The Pops will round out the evening with a flag-waving, red-white-and-blue performance of patriotic tunes.

May your 4th be blessed with music, comaraderie and the knowledge that we are still free.
