PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) - Philadelphia will feel some Miami heat this Fourth of July. 

The Wawa Welcome America concert has been announced, and Pitbull is bringing his Grammy-winning rap game to the Ben Franklin Parkway in celebration of Independence Day.

Mr. 305 / Mr. Worldwide comes to the 215 for the free concert which organizers say will end with the biggest summertime fireworks show in Philly in more than a decade.

Heather Headley will also be on stage. The Grammy- and Tony-winning talent joins the Philly POPS BIG Band, along with R&B singers Tiffany Jones, Alita Moses, and Desahanna Wooden. 

You don't have to be there to witness the spectacle. NBC10 is broadcasting the nighttime concert and fireworks on Wednesday, July 4th, at 7.
