Mariah Carey and Miguel delivered a soulful live performance of their hit track '#Beautiful', in a beautiful adornment to Macy's explosive Independence Day celebrations, with a three-piece choir and a live band.
Mariah Carey Performs 'America the Beautiful' On July 4th.
Young children waved US flags and the crowd whooped patriotically as fan-clobbering crooner Miguel softly sang, "When you dance like that, your jeans so tight// Oh, you're killing me, baby do it again." Writhing on a haystack whilst looking every inch the wholesome country girl, Mariah's eyes met Miguel's as she answered in kind: "I like when you run red lights//Don't stop 'til you thrill me, oh how you thrill me."
Miguel & Mariah Carey Teamed Up To Celebrate Independence Day.
Carey's husband, Nick Cannon, hosted the two hour event that showcased his wife's incredible and distinctive pre-recorded voice to millions of viewers, due to the annual New York event being televised by NBC. Her high notes at the end of '#Beautiful' are really something to behold, with unbelievable - almost ultra-sonic - notes coming from the ageless 43 year-old. She gave a stirring performance of 'America the Beautiful' that will warm the hearts and minds of all faithful Americans for time to come, before changing outfits once more for her timeless classic 'Hero.' As the red, white and blue fireworks lit up the eyes of fans, it was clear that Macy's 2013 Firework Spectacular had been another year's success.

The festive spirit of the holiday was captured superbly by Carey who, prior to her performance, tweeted a picture of her sunbathing on a speedboat wearing a tiny stars-and-stripes bikini with the caption "Gotta be Pon de water for the Fourth of July! Can't wait for the NBC special, it's going to be festivity!" 'Adorn' singer Miguel gave a performance in ripped jeans alongside superstar R&B veteran Carey that may absolve him from the criticism he faced when he misjudged a stage jump at the Billboard Music Awards in May, slamming a fan into the stage and causing potential brain damage.
