Grammy-award winning artists, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson and D’Angelo perform as “Brothers in Arms”, a featured event on July 3 as a part of Philly Fourth of July Jam. Featuring the incredible vocal and piano abilities of D’Angelo and the backing of the one of the best musicians in the world today, Questlove, “Brothers in Arms” will take listeners on a sonic experience unlike anything they have ever seen or heard in the past.
