Independence Day and STL250 converge on Forest Park for America's Biggest Birthday Party featuring Musiq Soulchild. The grounds that once hosted the 1904 World's Fair will once again welcome fairgoers from near and far.
Thanks to the generous support of presenting sponsor Anheuser-Busch InBev, platinum sponsors Edward Jones, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Nestle Purina, all Fair Saint Louis shows will be presented to the community for free and will be open to all ages.
Philadelphia native Taalib Johnson, a.k.a. Musiq Soulchild, is a Neo-Soul and R&B artist whose unique style blends R&B, soul, funk, hip-hop and rock. With two platinum albums, two gold albums and 10 hit singles under his belt, Musiq Soulchild has also earned 13 Grammy nominations, including two for his 2009 album OnMyRadio.
After a four-year break and a change in record labels, Musiq released Luvanmusiq (Love and Music) in 2007. In late 2008, Musiq’s fifth album, Onmyradio, hit the scene and made its mark with such hits as “Sobeautiful” and “Ifuleave” (ft. Mary J. Blige).” Musiq’s sixth album, MusiqIntheMagiq, was released in 2011 and included the smash single, “Anything (Ft. Swizz Beatz).”
