Nicki Minaj Headlining The Roots' 4th of July Jam

Aloe Blacc and Ariana Grande are also named as performs at the Philadelphia event.

Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter announced the performers for The Roots’ 4th of July Jam at a press conference yesterday (May 5).

The free event is set to feature Nicki Minaj, Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande and Aloe Blacc. The Roots will serve as the house band for the event.

The event, dubbed by VisitPhilly the “largest free concert in the country,” will be broadcast live on VH1 and online, according to visitphilly.com. 

Last year’s event included performances from J. Cole, Jill Scott and Ne-Yo. J. Cole and The Roots’ 2013 4th of July Jam performance can be seen here.

Last week, The Roots released the lyric video for the song “When The People Cheer,” a cut from its forthcoming …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin album. It is below.

The Continental Congress ratified the United States Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776 in Philadelphia. The date signifies the American Colonies' break from British imperial rule.

The Roots formed as a Hip Hop band in Philadelphia 1987. The group serves as the house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
