In memory of the five men killed in the Chattanooga shooting last week.
Happy Birthday America! It's hard to believe that it has been 11 years since Clay Aiken performed in Washington, D.C. for PBS' s A Capitol Fourth !
What are your plans for the Fourth of July? Are you getting out to celebrate or watching fireworks on the T. V. ?
Here's some music and a photo to get you in a patriotic mood;

If you had the money, the vendors and the artists you wanted, plus a good location; how would you plan your own summer music festival ? What artists would you choose?
Clay Aiken would be the main headliner for me, of course. You can design a festival poster, at least on http://fantasyfestivals.com/ .
So long to American Idol!
Thank you for jump-starting the music careers of Clay Aiken, Ruben Studdard, Phil Stacey, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Phillip Phiilips, Lauren Alaina, Scotty McCreery, and many more.
