Hosted by John Stamos and Vanessa Williams, the 40th annual broadcast of A Capitol Fourth will feature pre-taped performances without a live audience due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The concert is usually held on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.

Additional performers include Patti LaBelle, John Fogerty, Renée Fleming, The Temptations, Andy Grammer, Yolanda Adams, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Kelli O’Hara, Chrissy Metz, Mandy Gonzalez and members of the National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of top pops conductor Jack Everly.

The 90-minute show will also pay tribute to first responders and essential workers on the front lines of the coronavirus crisis, Black heroes past and present and Wounded Warriors. The fireworks display over our nation’s iconic skyline in D.C. will be covered live during the broadcast.

A Capitol Fourth will air on PBS on July 4 at 8 p.m. ET, as well as stream on Facebook, YouTube and pbs.org.
