Actress Katharine Mcphee was on hand to lend her support to the patriotic 'My Story. Our Flag' campaign by soap/detergent manufacturer Tide.
Here, she is introduced to the waiting audience at New York's Bryant Park before delivering a speech detailing her pride at representing Tide and eventually poses for photos.
The 'My Story. Our Flag' campaign has been masterminded by Tide to see what Americans believe the red, white and blue flag means to them. Asking Americans across Facebook and Twitter for the past several weeks to gather nearly 1,500 stories that are represented on a swatch of fabric. Each piece of the flag's fabric has been washed in Tide prior to being sewn together to create one giant American flag to hang over Bryant Park until the Olympics bid is over
