Two-time Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Colbie Caillat will break away from her current tour to honor our wounded warriors as they compete in the second annual Warrior Gamesin Colorado Springs, Colo. The multi-platinum singer will perform an exclusive USO concert for the more than 200 wounded, ill and injured service men and women and their families expected to be on-hand for the Games.
“I can’t wait to get to Colorado and perform my first USO concert at the 2011 Warrior Games," Colbie said. "When you have the opportunity to do something like this for such a deserving audience, it really is the opportunity of a lifetime. I can’t thank our wounded heroes enough for their sacrifices.”
Colbie, 25, who won two Grammys in 2010, will perform songs from her multi-platinum albums “Coco” and “Breakthrough,” the latter of which debuted at No. 1, and from her new album, “All of You,” set for release on July 12.
