NEW YORK, June 9 (UPI) -- Jordin Sparks and Kenny Chesney are set to sing during the "Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular" show in New York, NBC said Monday.

Also slated to perform at the event, which is to be televised on NBC, are Natasha Bedingfield and Katharine McPhee.

Natalie Morales, NBC's "Today" national correspondent, and Tiki Barber, "Today" correspondent and "Football Night in America" studio analyst, are to preside over the Independence Day festivities.

"Macy's 2008 Fourth of July Fireworks will kick off a season of special events nationwide celebrating Macy's 150th Birthday. The nation's biggest fireworks show begins with a resounding musical fanfare accompanied by a dazzling pyrotechnic salute to the world's largest store," Robin Hall, Macy's Fireworks executive producer, said in a statement. "Macy's Fireworks is always rated the No. 1 show in America by the American Pyrotechnic Association, and we're convinced the 2008 show will be no exception."
