Performances From 'Made In America' Festival Brings About Unity
Maybe there is something special about the Parkway area in Philadelphia. Jay-Z singing his New York Empire State anthem in Philly with no backlash was no small feat. The concert area has been the site for the annual Fourth of July celebration featuring The Roots as well. This area was also the location of the now disbanded "Unity Day" Celebration sponsored by WDAS Radio. The Budweiser sponsored Made In America Festival had the feel and energy of Unity Day. The likelihood of a free Unity Day event returning is minimal; but at least for one weekend, many concert goers through Jay-Z's vision and the cost of a ticket, came together. In a way many Philadelphians fondly remember 'Unity Day.'
