On this edition of EMExclusives, I recently had a wonderful conversation with the one & only Vanessa Williams as she becomes the first woman and African-American to host the annual A Capitol Fourth which airs this Sunday July 4th at 8:00pm on your local PBS stations!
Williams is no stranger to the concert itself. She has performed at the concert and its sistership, The National Memorial Day Concert for many years. Last year, she served as co-host to ACF alongside John Stamos. We talked about her experiences with the program, her involvement with a new podcast just launched recently and her Independence Day traditions.
On December 2nd, NBC will celebrate the lighting of the Rockefller Center Christmas tree with the 83rd Annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center.
The Today Show’s Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Natalie Morales will host the live broadcast – which will features performances by guests Sting, Mary J. Blige, Andrea Bocelli, The Band Perry, Andy Grammer, Carly Rae Jepsen, Pentatonix, Band of Merrymakers, and James Taylor.
