Capitol Fourth Lineup: John Stamos, Sesame Street, Lee Brice & More
The long-running PBS telecast celebrates its 39th anniversary as the nation’s premiere Fourth of July event!
Yahoo Entertainment revealed the list of performers who will taking the stage alongside returning emcee — and still America’s coolest uncle — John Stamos on Thursday, July 4 at 8 p.m. ET (7 p.m. CT).
Just like before, the evening’s entertainment is underscored by Jack Everly and the National Symphony Orchestra, who will accompany The Voice Season 16 winner, Maelyn Jarmon, as she performs the National Anthem.
Then American Idol champion, Laine Hardy, will be performing on the West Lawn stage, as well as America’s Got Talent dynamo, Angelica Hale.
Also legends will be taking over the stage, starting with multi-platinum recording artists Vanessa Williams and Vanessa Carlton. Then the cast of that Tony-award winning show, and King herself, will be joining Carlton onstage. And don’t think Stamos is planning to sit out the musical portion of the evening: The Full House star will join the MusiCorps Wounded Warrior Band to pay tribute to America’s servicemen and women.
Other performers featured during the telecast include electronic violinist Lindsey Stirling, country star Lee Brice, folk-pop singer/songwriter Colbie Caillat alongside her new band, Gone West and gospel artist Yolanda Adams. PLUS! Sesame Street.
A Capitol Fourth airs July 4 at 8 p.m. ET (7 p.m. CT) on PBS.
