    Before you know it, America will celebrate her birthday!

    In Philly, The Roots will serve as the house band for the City of Brotherly Love's annual 4th of July concert and fireworks display.

    Other acts set to appear include Ed Sheeran, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Hudson, Aloe Blacc, Ariana Grande and Vicci Martinez.

    That is quite a nice cross-section of performers. We sorta wanna fly, or phly, out to Philly and rock it.

    What are you doing on the Fourth? It's never too early to plan ahead. And while we've got you here, what's up for the Memorial Day holiday, which is literally right around the corner?
