The late legendary pioneer Tina Turner will be honored this year at Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular in New York City.
During the “Golden Mile” show, thousands of gold-colored shells will create a dramatic cascading effect that spans the East River in honor of the singer, who passed away in May at the age of 83.
Ashanti, Bebe Rexha, Ja Rule, Jelly Roll, Lainey Wilson, LL Cool J featuring DJ Z-Trip and The Roots, and more will also perform at the 47th annual event, hosted by Hot Wheels: Ultimate Challenge‘s Rutledge Wood and Access to Hollywood‘s Zuri room.
The broadcast will also feature a coastline flyover performed by an all-female flight crew to celebrate the 50th anniversary of female flying in the Navy.
Additionally, Caleb McLaughlin (Stranger things), George Lopez (Lopez vs Lopez), Maya Lopez (Lopez vs Lopez), Raymond Lee (Quantum Leap) and gymnasts from Team USA will perform during special segments throughout the event.
“Each year, this remarkable broadcast manages to both inspire and amaze audiences, illuminating the New York skyline with an unparalleled fireworks display,” said Jen Neal, executive vice president, live event and specials, NBCUniversal entertainment and streaming. “It’s this kind of live programming event that unites us as a country and makes both our NBC and Peacock brands so unique.”
The star-studded event and fireworks display, taking place between East 26th and East 40th Streets along the East River, will be broadcast live July 4 from 8-10pm ET/PT on NBC and streamed on Peacock.
