R&B superstar Usher has been handed the honour of curating a massive fireworks show in New York to mark this year's Independence Day (04Jul13) holiday.
The Yeah! hitmaker has been invited to work with organisers behind MACy's 4th of July spectacular to come up with the concept, music and design for the summer light show, titled It Begins With a Spark - the first time an artist has been hired for the job.
He plans to use some of his own songs alongside tracks by Rihanna, Swedish House Mafia and Frank Sinatra during the 37th annual MACy's 4th of July Fireworks display, which will feature a light show choreographed to music, reports the Associated Press.
The event will be broadcast live on U.S. Tv.
