Detroit’s Big Event Station showcases “Detroit Duets” at this year’s broadcast of “The Ford Fireworks” on Local 4 and ClickOnDetroit, presented by The Parade Company, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Local 4 anchors Devin Scillian, Kimberly Gill, Ben Bailey and Rhonda Walker will host this primetime special live from The Parade Company’s exclusive rooftop venue overlooking the Detroit River.
“The Ford Fireworks” is the highest rated local, entertainment television event of the summer and one of the nation’s largest fireworks displays.
Detroit rapper Big Sean will light up the stage at this year’s Ford Fireworks, the culmination of his Detroit’s On Now festivities. During his homecoming, prior to his appearance, he’ll be hosting five days of activities in the city, including a block party and fund-raiser for the Motown Museum.
Showcasing amazing local talent doesn’t stop there. “Detroit Duets,” presented by D.I.M.E. Detroit, pairs up eight popular area singers high atop the riverfront.
And, one of them, Kimmie Horne, niece of Jazz legend Lena Horne, will sing the American and Canadian anthems right before the magical pyrotechnic display of color, shapes, light and sound.
Viewers will also be treated to a premiere performance. Lauren Duski, rising country pop star and season 12 runner-up of “The Voice,” will debut her latest single “Costume Party,” during Local 4’s primetime show.
