Join us for a star-studded evening on the Independence Blue Cross Stage featuring performances by two-time Grammy Award-winning artist and Academy Award-winning actress, Jennifer Hudson, alongside the Philly POPS BIG Band, and Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, Meghan Trainor. The Independence Day celebrations continue with a dazzling fireworks display choreographed to a custom patriotic soundtrack created and performed by the United States Army Field Band.
