Open Air Cinema is Center of Attention at Stadium of Fire Fourth of July Celebration
After Carrie Underwood's main performance (which was really awesome - we'll tell you more about that below), Lou Diamond Phillips narrated a beautiful video that was projected on the three screens that showed how when America is needed around the world, we always show up to lend a hand of support. And then, in a climactic moment, fireworks exploded up and out of the center of the screens, creating a spectacular experience!
Carrie Underwood Says Military Broadcast of Stadium of Fire is 'Extra Special'
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!
