NEW YORK (AP) - Long before Pharrell Williams showered the world with musical happiness, Louis Armstrong knew the score.

Now Armstrong’s fans want you to know there’s a wonderful world in Queens.

A music festival named for the musician with the million-watt smile returns June 20 to the borough’s Flushing Meadows Park.

Organizers of Louis Armstrong’s Wonderful World festival invite you to stay tuned for the musical lineup.

Armstrong lived in Corona, Queens from 1943 until his death in 1971.

The landmarked home he shared with his wife Lucille is now the site of the Louis Armstrong House Museum.
