In an interview with the Deseret News, Carrie Underwood commented on her performance tonight at the Stadium of Fire in Provo, UT. The performance's grand-finale will feature Underwood singing a patriotic number after three Open Air Cinema screens are inflated in the middle of the stadium. A projection about how America always shows up when we are needed will be displayed on the screens, and will be narrated by Lou Diamond Phillips.
One of the coolest things we've heard about in relation to the show is the fact that the military will be viewing a live broadcast of the event as their official Fourth of July Celebration! And at the heart of the show will be Open Air Cinema's 20' Elite screens. In her interview
with the Deseret news, Underwood was quoted as saying "I love summer. It's all about outdoor concerts, and everybody is there to have a good time. People are happy and excited; even if it's hot and sticky, there's nothing like that. It's such a huge celebration that I really look forward to everybody having a good time."
And our favorite part: "And the fact that (the Stadium of Fire) is being broadcast to the U.S. military is extra special."
Carrie, we're right with you. We think it's really great that those who so proudly serve our country will be able to join in the festivities by watching this live broadcast. We are grateful for all those who proudly serve our country and keep us free! Happy Fourth of July!
