CNN will celebrate Independence Day this coming weekend with its The 4th in America special event on (you guessed it!) July 4. Don McLean, Barry Manilow, Martina McBride, Kenny Loggins, Cindy and Carlos Santana, Jewel, and CeCe Winans are among those scheduled to appear. The special will honor the pandemic's frontline workers, members of the military and citizens fighting for equality. The network adds in a statement, "With most Fourth of July events canceled across the country, CNN will honor our fellow Americans." The special will air from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. ET and will be hosted by Don Lemon in New York and Dana Bash in Washington, D.C.
