Album “Life Is Beautiful” releasing April 16, 2013
On november 13th, we took a break from our European tour to fly to the Ali Al Salem Air force base in Kuwait on invitation to play a concert for the troops stationed there. It is near the border of Iraq and is the closest air base to Iran, which is only 80 miles away. The base played a key role in the success of the gulf war. It was a huge honor to spend time with the great men and women serving our country there. Many of them have been there for 5 or more months, sacrificing precious time away from their families to help insure our freedom and safety. Our hope was to encourage them and thank them for the great sacrifices that they make. It was a very special time that we will always remember and be grateful for. During the show, the soldiers sang along, danced, and worshipped with us. With Thanksgiving approaching, we give thanks for all of the brave men and women serving our great country! Please join us in praying for them and their families…for their safety and that God continues to give them strength and unity!
