I just saw this news on my twitter feed and it's not listed on the main page, so here's a heads up everyone.
Barry Manilow will join stars from Broadway, "American Idol" and composerJohn Williams for this year's July Fourth celebration on the National Mall.
Williams will conduct music from the Oscar-winning movie "Lincoln" with the National Symphony Orchestra.
The Independence Day concert and fireworks draw hundreds of thousands of visitors. It's broadcast each year on PBS and NPR from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
