One year we had a celebration there for the 4th. My dad’s band played. We had a cakewalk (that’s Ava you see with me in the cakewalk), and a ton of fireworks. So much fun,” she recalled.

“I hope everybody had a safe and happy Independence day. Happy Independence Day everybody. It was great to be with you Ohio,” she exclaimed in a story post on Instagram, following her live concert in Dublin, Ohio.
