Live from the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol, the annual concert celebrating America’s birthday pays special tribute to American military heroes and their families.

Among the performers this year are Colbie Caillat, Carole King, Keala Settle, and Vanessa Williams.

Hosted by John Stamos, the show also features the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Jack Everly, the Choral Arts Society of Washington, the U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own,” and the U.S. Army Herald Trumpets.

The finale includes fireworks and Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” complete with cannon fire.
