WASHINGTON (AP) – Barry Manilow sang a medley of “Let Freedom Ring” to lead off a booming fireworks display on the National Mall.
Manilow’s performance put the nation’s capital in a patriotic mood, opening the Independence Day concert that preceded the fireworks display.
Manilow also sang “America the Beautiful” and “One Voice” with the National Symphony Orchestra. Nicole Scherzinger sang the national anthem, country singer Hunter Hayes sang his new hit single “21” and KC and the Sunshine Band got the crowd on their feet.
Security was tight with officers checking all bags. Visitors had to pass through metal detectors near the U.S. Capitol lawn.
Later, the National Symphony played the “1812 Overture” as cannons roared amid the explosion of fireworks near the National Mall.
