There’s a late addition to our stay-at-home choices for the 4th of July.
This one is on CNN – a four-hour marathon that offers an early start for the West Coast. PBS ad NBC (see separate stories) start at 8 p.m. ET/PT, continuing (counting reruns) until 11; CNN goes from 8 to midnight ET … which is 5-9 p.m. PT.
Don Lemon will host for CNN from New York, with Dana Bash in Washington. This will include the fireworks from both cities, plus Houston, Nashville and Jacksonville. It adds lots of music, including Andy Grammer (shown here), who will also be on PBS. Also performing are:
– The New York Philharmonic, the New York Youth Symphony, the Harlem Gospel Choir, students from Berklee College of Musi and symphonies from Chicago, San Francisco, Houston and Colorado.
– Military groups – the Marine Band, Navy Band and Army Field Band.
– The casts of Broadway shows with the music of the Temptations and Bob Dylan.
– And individuals – Martina McBride, Carlos Santana, CeCe Winans, Barry Manilow, Jewel, Billy Ray Cyrus, Pat Benatar, Don McLean, Jesse Colin Young and the O’Jays.
