Grammy-winning artist Usher helped inspire and design the fireworks show by collaborating with Macy's. This is the first such collaboration where Macy's worked with an artist to curate the show.

The 25 minute fireworks show will feature over 40,000 fireworks that will light up the sky in celebration of America's Independence Day.

The design of the show will be curated by Usher and called "It Begins With a Spark."

Amy Kule, executive producer of Macy's 4th of July Fireworks said: "With this first-ever collaboration with Usher, we are taking the show to the next level of entertainment spectacle, combining the very best of Macy's Fireworks with Usher's unparalleled artistic vision."

The fireworks will feature hits from Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, Jimi Hendrix, Frank Sinatra and many more.

The show, titled "Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular", will be broadcasted live on NBC at 8.p.m. ET. The live stream is available via the link below.

This year's show will feature an all-star line-up, including performances from Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Tim McGraw, and Nick Cannon.
