Eclipse cast to take part in July 4th celebration
NBC has issued a press release announcing that, among other celebrities, members of the Eclipse cast will be taking part in a televised celebration of the nation’s independence.
NBC Celebrates the nationâ€™s birthday extravaganza with performances by music superstar Justin Bieber, GrammyÂ® Award winning musician Enrique Iglesias and multi-platinum singer LeAnn Rimes on NBCâ€™s 11th consecutive live broadcast of â€œMacyâ€™s 4th of July FireworksÂ® Spectacular.â€ Cast members from the Twilight Saga: Eclipse will also partake in the excitement onboard the Norwegian EPIC. Hosted by Nick Cannon, from NBCâ€™s â€œAmericaâ€™s Got Talentâ€ and Alison Sweeney, from NBCâ€™s â€œThe Biggest Loser,â€ the show will air in high definition on Sunday, July 4th 9-10 p.m. ET, 8-9 p.m. CT.
The Macyâ€™s 4th of July Fireworks, the nationâ€™s largest Fourth of July fireworks display, returns to the Hudson River to illuminate the sky over New York City with a glorious spectrum of colors, shapes and sparkling dazzlers. Featuring more than 40,000 firework shells, American Harmony, the theme of this yearâ€™s Macyâ€™s Fireworks display, will take more than 3 million spectators on a high flying journey through the nationâ€™s musical history that is filled with unique harmonies embraced by the entire world.
â€œBuilding on last yearâ€™s success, Macyâ€™s will again present its 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular on the Hudson River,â€ said Robin Hall, executive producer of the annual event. â€œMillions of people along the riverfront and millions more watching the primetime special, which this year will be staged aboard the magnificent new Norwegian EPIC, will see a show a mile and a half long and hundreds of feet in the sky saturated with an unexpected spectrum of rich, jewel-like colors.â€ He added, â€œThere will be huge shells with cores of color that sparkle and astonish. Weâ€™ll transform the sky into a tapestry of rich colors produced though an alchemy of ancient art and modern technology; colors that are somehow intensified by the soaring vocal-infused Fireworks score.â€
