VOICES OF SERVICE VETERAN QUARTET TO SING NATIONAL ANTHEM
The Military Bowl Foundation today announced that Voices of Service, a quartet of U.S. Army veteran service members, will sing the national anthem at the 2022 Military Bowl presented by Peraton, benefiting the USO on Wednesday, December 28 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis.
The game, between Duke and Central Florida, kicks off at 2 p.m. ET and will be televised on ESPN. Tickets are on sale now at militarybowl.org/tickets.
Voices of Service, which consists of Master Sergeant (Ret.) Caleb Green, Staff Sergeant (Ret.) Ron Henry, Sergeant Major (Ret.) Christal Rheams and Sergeant 1st Class (Ret.) Jason Hanna, appeared on the NBC show America’s Got Talent in 2019, placing fifth. The group recently released a holiday album.
Voices of Service is part of the Center for American Military Music Opportunities and uses its platform to increase awareness of what music can do for service members coping with post-traumatic stress and other invisible or visible wounds. Voices of Service’s appearance is part of the partnership between the Military Bowl and its longtime charitable partner, the USO.
The group had been scheduled to perform the national anthem at the 2021 Military Bowl, before that game canceled.
“We look forward to Voices of Service joining us on gameday and helping celebrate the nation’s service members,” Military Bowl Foundation President & Executive Director Steve Beck said. “The Military Bowl and Voices of Service share a strong commitment to supporting and raising awareness for our nation’s service members.”
Proceeds from the Bowl benefit the USO and Patriot Point, the Military Bowl Foundation’s retreat for wounded, ill and injured service members, their families and caregivers.
