While most of us are absorbed in the daily grind, July 4th is a reminder to celebrate our nation’s independence and each other. With landmark issues being battled back and forth in Congress, the states feel divided. Independence Day reminds us we’re UNITED.
This holiday weekend, Clear Channel Outdoor invites us to celebrate the 4th with the first cross-country digital billboard display of “The Star Spangled Banner.” From Albuquerque to Atlanta to Seattle to Times Square the billboards will beam the lyrics to our nation’s anthem. As you drive to the family BBQ or walk downtown to your rooftop soirée, be on the lookout for the red, white and blue billboards.
Watch a sneak preview with this moving short film (2 mins.) and hear the “Star-Spangled Banner” sung by New York-based Indie pop singer Ingrid Michaelson. I always rate a rendition of the anthem with the “chills factor”. Hers: Goosebumps galore after one verse.
This weekend, promote your patriotism with the tag #United4th. Share your slice of watermelon, your child’s face smudged with ice cream, fireworks on the Hudson and your good old-fashioned sparklers on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Vine — and connect with Americans cross-country. Plus, your photo may appear on a future Clear Channel billboard.
#United4th, you made my Digiday!
