Schoolhouse Rock!: The Shot Heard ‘Round The World

Schoolhouse Rock!, Dolly at Glastonbury, a Bobby Womack tribute and more in this week's look at music

As Americans celebrate their independence on the 4th of July, it’s important for the entire world to remember freedom is a right that everyone should enjoy.
