This weekend we celebrate the 4th of July, an occasion to celebrate American independence with American flags and coolers that are made in China along with  fireworks and beer that are made in Mexico.

To kick off this holiday weekend, today’s music theme is about America, freedom and independence, in thought and practice.

So grab your Made in India sparklers and let the party begin!
