It’s almost that time of the year again! This year’s celebration on The 4th of July will take place on the Ben Franklin Parkway. This year WaWa Coming to America decided to give well deserved legends their flowers while they’re still here with a salute to Rock & Roll Hall Of Famers Gamble & Huff, this year marking their 45th anniversary of their record label Philadelphia International Records.
Performers include: Leslie Odom Jr. – of the year’s breakout Broadway musical Hamilton, West Philly’s own Yazz the Greatest – star of Fox’s hit TV series Empire, and Brotherly Love, a five-member group whose fame soared after their impromptu backstage performance for President Obama.
Legendary performers include TSOP Superstars The O’Jays, Harold Melvin’s Bluenotes, The Intruders and The Urban Guerrilla Orchestra. This year the broadcast of The 4th of July celebration moves to its new home NBC10.
