Neil Diamond to debut Boston Marathon tribute song at Capitol

Diamond added, “I was inspired to devote myself to the creation of a new song which expressed my love for this country and its two greatest assets: the spirit of its people and the freedoms it has afforded us all by law.” 

All proceeds from sales of the song will benefit One Fund Boston and the Wounded Warrior Project.

The 33rd annual Independence Day event takes place on the west lawn of the Capitol.
