Martina To Fill In For Lionel Richie At Boston Pops Concert
Martina McBride will be filling in Lionel Richie as a special guest for the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular this Monday, the 4th of July. According to her website, Martina was selected to replace Lionel after he was diagnosed with strained vocal cords after a number of recent concerts.
“One of my most favorite things in the world is to perform with a live orchestra, and to sing with the prestigious Boston Pops on Independence Day in front of thousands of people and on national television is not only an amazing opportunity but a career highlight for me,” said McBride. “I wish Mr. Richie a speedy recovery and am looking forward to what will be a memorable day for me.”
The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular will be broadcast live on CBS Monday at 10.
