John Legend brought his emotional ballad “Never Break” to the 2020 Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular on NBC on Saturday (July 4).

Seated at the piano in a holiday-ready red suit, Legend crooned the Bigger Love track, which he also recently performed for the BET Awards.

He seemed to be solo until he got to the chorus of the song, when a choir — safely spaced apart — joined him on vocals.

Later in the show, Legend returned with “Glory.”

As part of that performance, he said: “Today as we celebrate July 4th, we have to recall that everyone wasn’t free at that time. Too many of our brothers and sisters were not free. The ideals that this nation stands for, we still don’t live up to. We have to keep fighting, keep marching, to get closer to freedom.”

“Keep marching with us,” Legend encouraged.

This year’s 4th of July TV special was based in New York City but featured musical performances filmed by artists around the country. Brad Paisley opened the show, which also had appearances by Lady A, The Killers, Tim McGraw and The Black Eyed Peas, plus national youth poet laureate Amanda Gorman.

An encore presentation airs at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.

Kanye West Announces 2020 Presidential Run

On Saturday night (July 4), West took to Twitter to announce he is running for president, sharing the hashtag #2020VISION.

Kanye West Announces 2020 Presidential Run

Kanye West has returned to headlines recently, whether for his 10-year deal with Gap (Yeezy Gap will arrive next year) or for his latest surprise single “Wash Us In the Blood” featuring Travis Scott.

But Saturday night, on the Fourth of July, West shared his most important news to date: he’s running for president in 2020.

“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States,” West tweeted around 9 p.m. ET. He completed the tweet with an American flag emoji, and the hashtag #2020VISION.

Rumors of West running for president have circulated before — over the past year he’s leaned much more into politics, having a handful of meetings with Donald Trump. This tweet seemingly confirms that he is in fact all in.

Billboard has reached out to his team for comment.

See the tweet below.
