Grammy-winning artist Colbie Caillat recently performed an exclusive USO Concert as part of the closing ceremonies of the 2011 Warrior Games presented by Deloitte. The second annual games were held in Colorado Springs, Colo. at the U.S. Olympic Training Center and were hosted by the U.S. Olympic Committee and The U.S. Department of Defense.
And because we all love pictures, we have pictures from Caillat’s first USO tour experience below, along with all the details!
Caillat broke away from her recent tour to perform for the USO, where more than 1,700 warriors, military families and spectators were on-hand for the closing ceremonies and USO concert, held at the U.S. Air Force Academy.
The Warrior Games consisted of a five day athletic competition featuring 200 wounded, injured and ill service men and women from all branches of the military, including Special Operations Command, competing in seven sports. The sports featured during the games were archery, cycling, wheelchair basketball, shooting, swimming, track & field and sitting volleyball.
Colbie’s third album, All of You, is set for release next month, on July 12.
On her involvement with the games, she says, “What an amazing honor to be asked to perform for war heroes at the USO concert for the Warrior Games. These men and women have experienced things I can’t even begin to imagine. I am honored to be a part of such a wonderful event and glad for the opportunity to show my support. It was one of the most inspiring days of my career.”
