E! News recently announced the star-studded lineup for NBC’s annual Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular in celebration of our nation’s birthday. The event is set to air Sunday, July 4 at 8 PM.
Hosted by New Amsterdam’s Ryan Eggold and Girls5eva star Renée Elise Goldsberry, the Fourth of July event will feature Blake Shelton, the Jonas Brothers, Reba McEntire, Coldplay, Black Pumas and OneRepublic among the A-list performers. Fans can also tune in at 10 p.m. for an hour-long encore presentation.
For the first time in Macy’s Fireworks history, a drone light show will accompany the Jonas Brothers’ performance of their hit single “Leave Before You Love Me” with Marshmello. Exactly 350 drones will fly high above to honor Team USA as they prepare to depart for the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Throughout the event, a series of uplifting personal stories called the “American Spirit” will spotlight everyday heroes in the U.S., while Olympians Allyson Felix, Simone Manuel, Tatyana McFadden and Jessica Long share their personal stories. Viewers have the opportunity to donate to Red Nose Day to support children and families facing food insecurity.
Earlier this month, the Jonas Brothers released “Remember This.” The band recently teamed up with NBCUniversal, officially debuting the song during the broadcast of the first night of the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for track & field—in advance of the Tokyo Olympics on July 23.
“Remember This” is one of the group’s most upbeat, undeniable, and uplifting anthems to date. On the track, guitar echoes as percussive production ramps up towards the expansive and engaging chant, “Used to pray for a moment just like this, there’s a fire in your eyes I can’t resist, baby we’re gonna wanna remember this.”
Deepening their Olympic Games relationship with NBCUniversal, they’ll perform the song for the first time within NBCUniversal’s coverage of the Tokyo Olympic Games this summer. Additionally, the “In-Games” version will feature new lyrics inspired by the Olympic Games and Team USA. Olympic Dreams Featuring Jonas Brothers airs two days before the Opening Ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics on July 21 at 8pm ET/PT on NBC.
