American Authors and Brandon Victor Dixon join the slate of performers for NBC's annual "Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular," which airs Wednesday, July 4 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT), with an hourlong encore presentation at 10 p.m. Dixon will be joined by the iconic Harlem Gospel Choir for a rendition of the patriotic "America the Beautiful."
American Authors and Dixon join the previously announced acts, including Kelly Clarkson, Ricky Martin, Blake Shelton and Keith Urban, whose performance will feature hitmaker Julia Michaels for a song during his set. NBC's Emmy Award-nominated "American Ninja Warrior's" Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila are set to host the broadcast.
The 42nd annual Macy's 4th of July firework display over the East River will feature a pyrotechnic spectacle, igniting the skyline with more than 75,000 shells, making it Macy's largest firework display since the millennial celebration in 2000. The show will be accompanied by the West Point Band and Glee Club and their renditions of patriotic classics such as "Stars & Stripes Forever" and "The Star Spangled Banner."
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of "God Bless America," the special will also feature an all-new recording of the patriotic classic by Clarkson with the West Point Band and Glee Club as the backdrop to the show's famed Golden Mile, an array of golden-hued effects for a mile across the river.
