GRAMMY® AWARD-WINNING LINE-UP ANNOUNCED FOR PHILADELPHIA’S FREE JULY 4TH CONCERT!
Film and Music Icon, Jennifer Hudson, performing alongside The Philly POPS® BIG Band, and Pop Superstar, Meghan Trainor Slated for Showstopping Performances on the Independence Blue Cross Stage at the Wawa Welcome America July 4th Concert on Thursday, July 4, 2019 at 7 PM on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and broadcast live on NBC10.
Jennifer Hudson rose from humble beginnings singing in a small Chicago church to reach worldwide acclaim, becoming a household name as a two-time GRAMMY® Award-winning recording artist, Academy Award-winning actress and best-selling author. Jennifer’s self-titled debut album was certified gold and sold over a million copies worldwide. A powerhouse of talent and inspiration to many, Hudson continues her legacy through The Julian D. King Gift Foundation, advocating for children of all backgrounds by supporting their health, education, and welfare. For the Wawa Welcome America performance, Hudson’s commanding vocals will be accompanied by The Philly POPS® BIG Band, forming a truly unique experience.
Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Meghan Trainor’s career was skyrocketed by the smash single “All About That Bass” in 2014, earning the Recording Industry Association of America’s diamond certification and solidifying her role as a pop-dynamo after becoming one of only five female artists to receive the award. Trainor is a GRAMMY® Award-winner with seven multi-platinum singles and two platinum albums, has sold out three world tours, and penned multi-platinum hits for peers across pop and country.
