EAST ORANGE, NJ - Municipalities across the area hosted a variety of festive events celebrating Independence Day, but according to attendees at last weekend’s extravaganza, few can compare to the East Orange July 4th Celebration.

Not only did East Orange have a spectacular fireworks show, but also a free concert with music and entertainment featuring East Orange’s own Rakim Singleton, aka Chicc the Comedian, a Christian comic and youth minister at Faith Temple Church; American Broadway, film and television actress Antonique Smith, Kenny Bobien, a Newark pastor and legendary house music icon who has been creating the music that represents an entire community of gospel and house for the better part of 20 years, Kevin “DJ Lil Man” Brown, with more than 20 million viewers on YouTube and Katlyn Nichol a 17-year-old protégé of Mary J. Blige who was signed to Def Jam Recordings when she was just 12 years old.

During the festivities TAPinto East Orange/Orange caught up with local businessman and president of Ampere Civic Association Royston Allman to inquire what he thought about the event. His comment was simply, “The Allegheny Drum-line was great; DJ Lil Man brought all the children to their feet and got them dancing! The vocal performances that I heard were excellent; and the fireworks display was awesome.”
