“This is my opportunity to honor and pay tribute to the members of the Armed Forces and their families, active and veterans, who have served their country so selflessly,”
“The fact I am able to perform in a part of the country that is known for its military population during the Veterans Day season makes it an ideal opportunity for me to show my respect to these brave men and women.”
Admission to the show is free for military identification card holders and $15 for the civilian sector.
Proceeds from the performance will go the Wounded Warrior Project.
