HBO aired a special tribute for Veterans Day. The live show featured some of music's biggest names, as well as others in entertainment. The celebrities yielded their talents to pause and celebrate Veterans day right in the heart of our nation's capital.
The night began with Jennifer Hudson delivering the National Anthem, and it went full steam ahead from there. Our President and First lady were among those who spoke via video stream, and the likes of Jamie Foxx, Meryl Streep, Carrie Underwood, Metallica, Bryan Cranston, Rihanna, Zac Brown Band, Bruce Springsteen, Eminem, and so many more participated.
The artists all delivered solid performances.. while the other celebs in attendance introduced us all to some extraordinary service men and women in between the performances. It truly was touching to learn of the heroic and selfless acts of the men and women highlighted. These people are truly remarkable.
The show just aired hours ago, so I haven't found footage of all of the performances, but below are a couple that are readily available. If you follow me on twitter, you probably saw my rant about Rih doing a great job. Her performance along with Jessie J's Bang Bang were among my faves. It was also great to see one of our favorite artists Jade Novah and producer Devin in the band for the special event. Great artistry all around! Check out Jessie J's collab with JHud, and Rih's sets below!
Once again, many thank yous to the men and women who have served and are serving our country! I hope they have felt today if not everyday that they are truly appreciated in some way! To learn more about how you can honor our vets in some way.. head over to TheConcertForValor.com
