Lineup announced for A Capitol Fourth 2016

WASHINGTON — Smokey Robinson, Kenny Loggins and Gavin DeGraw will headline this year’s Fourth of July concert on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.

Alison Porter, who won Season 10 of TV’s “The Voice”, will sing the national anthem.

“A Capitol Fourth” will also celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, the 75th anniversary of the USO and salute the American athletes who will compete in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

As it always does, the show will end loudly with a performance of the “1812 Overture” and live cannon fire.

Tom Bergeron will host the concert, which will be broadcast live on PBS.

You can find the complete lineup and information on how to attend the free concert on their website.
