CAMMO Voices

The Center for American Military Music Opportunities (CAMMO) joins with George Mason University’s Veterans and the Arts Initiative to present a concert that honors service members, their spouses and families. 

The emcee will be standup comedian and combat-wounded Army veteran Dewayne White.

The ensemble @Eaze kicks off the evening with unique musical stylings and includes active duty, retired and veteran service members spanning the armed forces. Tommy Stanley, a Navy Veteran and NBC Nashville Star finalist, then will bring his soulful rock voice to the stage. 

The celebration continues with the American Military Spouses Choir, comprising military spouses from all branches of the military. 

Country singer and songwriter Donnie Isaacs, a combat veteran, follows with his service story told through his music. 

Closing the concert is “America’s Got Talent” season 14 top five finalist, Voices of Service. Retired Master Sgt. Caleb Green, retired Staff Sgt. Ron Henry, retired Sgt. Maj. Christal Rheams and retired Sgt. 1st Class Jason Hanna bring their powerful voices and message to this moving vocal performance.
