World-renowned tenor Anthony Kearns joined a star-studded musical cast in "America Salutes You," a multi-platform broadcast celebrating active duty military, veterans, and veterans' causes. The program aired nationally in 2016 over Thanksgiving Day weekend.
Produced by Bob Okun and Jerry Foley, and hosted by actor Tom Dreesen before a live audience at the Rosemont Theater in Chicago, the concert aired on television, radio and online through Tribune Broadcasting, Sinclair Broadcast Group, Graham Media Group Nexstar and on stations.
Mr. Kearns performed an exciting and inspirational interpretation of "O' America," a powerful ballad written by Irish songwriter Brendan Graham with American composer William Joseph.
Kearns, an original member of the successful group, The Irish Tenors, is joined by accompanist David George of Louisville, KY.
"Anthony Kearns frequently appears in support of American military, their families, and veterans' causes," said Kearns' publicist and event promoter, Kirsten Fedewa.
Kearns said, "I was happy to contribute to this special show for America's military at the invitation of my good friend, Bob Okun. Music carries a message of healing and peace throughout the world. No group of people is truer to America than the U.S. military. No group has answered the call with a stronger pledge to do everything they can do to protect freedom," he said. "I never lose sight of the fact that freedom is not free, it comes at a price and there are sacrifices. To members of the military and their families across the world, I thank you for your service and dedication."
