Jennifer Nettles celebrated Independence Day with a performance on PBS’ A Capitol Fourth on Sunday (July 4).
Nettles performed “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’,” from the 1943 musical, Oklahoma!. Nettles recently released a cover of the song on her brand new, Broadway inspired album, Always Like You.
“Broadway is getting ready to reopen,” Nettles said of ahead of her performance. “The audiences will soon be filling the seats and the bright lights we now see again are a symbol of a renewed spirit of hope and optimism, not just for today but for our tomorrow.”
