HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Hattiesburg church is hosting an early birthday celebration for America Sunday.

19th Avenue Baptist Church will present the 8th annual "Let Freedom Ring" at 10:30 a.m.

It's a musical drama about the history of the United States.

About 50 people are part of the production.

"We just look forward to presenting this program," said Monty Bounds, church pastor. "Ben Franklin, Betsy Ross and Paul Revere are going to take us through the history of America along with the Celebration Choir singing some great songs of this wonderful country that we live in."

Church members have been putting the show together for two months.
