Celebrating Independence Day at the White House

Watch videos from past July 4th celebrations and find out how to watch a livestream of this year's Independence Day show.

In each of the past three years, President Obama has marked Independence Day with a celebration at the White House featuring a concert, organized by the USO, to honor members of the U.S. military and their families.

And that tradition will continue this year with a performance from country music star Brad Paisley.

You can watch the concert beginning tomorrow, just after 8:00 on, and if you stick around, you'll get a great view of the National Mall fireworks show -- from the South Lawn of the White House.
