United States Soldiers and Veterans give in so many different ways. They fight for our Country and our personal freedoms, they go to the ends of the Earth to protect our family and loved ones often times leaving behind their own family and loved ones. They rebuild cities and help provide sustenance to people effected by war time. And unfortunately, many times they give the ultimate sacrifice-- their lives.
Now through the 4TROOPS music cd put out through Sony Music, the soldiers and veterans participating are giving back in another way! The 4 TROOPS are 4 US combat veterans who fought on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan. They all shared a passion for music and are now sharing their talent with the world while creating awareness for veterans, soldiers and their needs.
"Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue," "You Raise Me Up," and "You'll Never Walk Alone," the new self-titled album consists of well-known positive pop and country hits, along with some new songs. Sony Music will donate 50 cents from each sale of the 4TROOPS album in the United States to organizations that support veterans and their families. This donation will be split equally among The American Legion, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF) and the USO.
