POP ICON Nicki Minaj will be among the star-studded lineup at this year's annual 4th of July Jam on the Parkway, long touted as the largest free outdoor concert in America.
Minaj, along with Questlove and the Roots, will light up the Ben Franklin Parkway for the annual Wawa Welcome America bash this summer.
Jennifer Hudson, Ed Sheeran, Aloe Blacc, Ariana Grande and Vicci Martinez will also perform at the Party on the Parkway, the climax of a week's worth of events.
"There's pretty much nothing the Roots won't do for the city of Philadelphia," Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson said. He joined Mayor Nutter and executives from Wawa and Welcome America inside the rotunda at the Shops at Liberty Place yesterday to unveil the performance lineup.
