For the first time, the eighth annual Grand Park + The Music Center’s 4th of July Block Party: Home Edition has partnered with ABC7/KABC-TV Los Angeles, Southern California’s most-watched television station, to broadcast the first hour of the highly popular celebration on Saturday, July 4, (7:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m. PDT) on ABC7. Viewers can also stream the first hour live on abc7.com and ABC7’s Connected TV Apps. The special will simulcast on L.A. County’s public access Channel 36 and will continue with expanded programming streamed from 8:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m. PDT on Grand Park’s and The Music Center’s digital channels. The event is hosted by ABC7 Eyewitness News anchor Coleen Sullivan, who will be joined throughout the special by Eyewitness Newsmakers’ host Adrienne Alpert, and community journalists Sophie Flay, Ashley Mackey and Eric Resendiz.
In line with Grand Park’s mission to honor the County’s cultural diversity through programming reflective of the “park for everyone,” Grand Park + The Music Center’s 4th of July Block Party: Home Edition will feature performances and profiles of more than 25 local artists and community partners representing the vitality of Los Angeles. While the family-friendly, free event pivoted to online platforms due to restrictions limiting large public gatherings, it will now also be accessible to television audiences through this unique partnership. The park will remain open on July 4th as it has been a central site for civil demonstrations; however, there will be no programming available in the park or the traditional fireworks show.
            Rapper and songwriter D Smoke (née Daniel Anthony Farris) will headline the event, performing songs from his debut album, Black Habits. The Inglewood native was the winner of Netflix’s music competition show Rhythm & Flow in 2019. Additional music performances will include Latinx soulstress San Cha, bedroom pop singer Ginger Root and dancehall newcomer Amindi. The line-up also includes Filipino American comedians from Filipino AF performing improv and sketch routines (digital only) as well as a plant-based Street Tacos cooking demonstration from Chef Jocelyn Ramirez, owner of East L.A.’s Todo Verde. The remainder of the program features the viewpoints of L.A.-based personalities sharing their personal stories and cultural perspectives of what it means to be an Angeleno. To get the party started, Grand Park will also host two 50-minute DJ sets on Wednesday, July 1, 2020, starting at 5:00 p.m. with 143 Worldwide and the vibrant tones of R&B (DJ Jadaboo), followed by Cumbiatón and the rhythms of Cumbia at 6:00 p.m. (DJs Sizzle Fantastic and Funky Carmelo); each set will be streamed on Grand Park’s Mixcloud channel.
