After 16 years of war, the number of veterans including the National Guard and Reservists, with multiple tours of combat duty, is the largest in modern American history. Today, many of those who have served are unemployed, homeless, uninsured and struggling to provide for their families. Now more than ever, veterans and their families need our service.
Some of the charity recipients of the night include Headstrong, Psych Armor,
The Elizabeth Dole Foundation, Hope For The Warriors and Warrior Canine Connection, all made possible by presentation sponsor The Independence Fund and other corporate sponsors including American Airlines, Johnson & Johnson, Walgreens, The National Football League, Broadridge and TIBCO, with text-to-donate provided by AT&T.
The Legendary Soul Man™ Sam Moore recently released his latest album. Sam Moore: An American Patriot, available for purchase including downloads on iTunes, Amazon, and more. The album was inspired by Moore’s performance of “America the Beautiful” on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, where his dear friend and inspiration Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stood 53 years earlier and delivered his famous “Dream” speech.
Moore believes that music is the universal language that knows no boundary or color and was the best way for him to take a stand and make an impact in helping to bring the country he loves back together.
Sam Moore found musical fame as one half of the ’60s powerhouse duo Sam & Dave. With 1967’s hit “Soul Man,” the duo found lasting fame, defined a genre, and altered the course of music history. Their signature sound influenced a diverse array of musical talents, including Al Green, Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, Tom Petty, Phil Collins, Elvis Costello, Billy Joel and so many others. Sam & Dave’s music and personas inspired the film The Blues Brothers, and other hits like “Hold On I’m Coming” have appeared on the soundtracks of more than a dozen films. Moore, 81, continues to record and perform to critical acclaim as a solo artist and as a guest performer for dozens of his musical friends. The Legendary Soul Man recently accepted a position as Artist in Residence at Florida International University as part of the College of Arts, Sciences & Education Humanities Project.
