Louisiana homeboy Hunter Hayes was in the city of Brotherly Love for the holiday weekend and took center stage performing at VH1's Philly 4th of July Jam!

Fans gathered in front of the Philadephia Museum of Art to hear Hunter and other artists perform.

Hayes performed with the famous Philly band The Roots (you may know them better as Jimmy Fallon's house band on Late Night.)  Hayes sang his hits "I Want Crazy" and "Somebody's Heartbreak" before surprising the crowd with a song he called one of his favorites, "like, ever!" Hayes closed the show with a cover of the the 1981 hit by The Police, "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic!"
