-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(Suggested Anchor Intro):
"A Capitol Fourth"--America's longest-running national T-V event on Independence Day--returns for its 39th-annual broadcast, on P-B-S--live from the West Lawn of the U-S Capitol-building.  This year's celebration will again be hosted by John Stamos--who will be performing with the "Musicorps Wounded-Warrior Band"...

(STAMOS):
"TO ME, TO BE ABLE TO PLAY WITH THE 'WOUNDED WARRIORS'--I MEAN, OF COURSE, THIS IS GOING TO BE THE HEART OF THE SHOW.  I HEAR [THAT] THEY'RE GREAT MUSICIANS--AND I ALWAYS WANTED TO GO VISIT THE VETS IN THE HOSPITALS, AND CELEBRATE THEM, AND HONOR THEM.  AND, NOW, DOING THIS IN A MUSICAL SENSE IS REALLY EXCITING FOR ME:  TO GO AND PLAY WITH SOME OF THESE MUSICIANS, AND THEN TO GET TO BRING THEM ONSTAGE, AT THE 'CAPITOL FOURTH'--WITH HUNDREDS-OF-THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WATCHING LIVE, AND ALSO MILLIONS AT HOME--IS--I DON'T WANT TO OVERHYPE IT FOR MYSELF, BUT I THINK [THAT] IT'S GOING TO BE ONE OF THE GREATEST MOMENTS OF MY CAREER.  I'M GETTING CHOKED UP JUST TALKING ABOUT IT."

(Suggested Anchor Tag):
This year's concert features Carole King, with the Broadway-cast of "Beautiful", starring Vanessa Carlton--as well as a 50th-anniversary tribute to "Sesame Street".  The lineup also includes: "Gone West", featuring Colbie ["cole-bee"] Caillat ["cal-lay"]; Lindsey Stirling; Keala ["kay-ah-lah"] Settle; Vanessa Williams; Lee Brice; Yolanda Adams; Laine Hardy; Angelica Hale; Laura Osnes ["auss-ness"]; "The O'Jays"; and Maelyn ["may-lynn"] Jarmon ["jar-mon"]--with the "National Symphony Orchestra".  "A Capitol Fourth" airs live, on P-B-S, Thursday, July 4th, at eight p-m, Eastern; check local listings, for the time in your area.  To learn more, visit "p-b-s"-dot-org-slash-"capitol-fourth".  "A Capitol Fourth" remains unaffiliated with any other events on July 4th.
