Celebrate Armed Forces Day with New Directions Veterans Choir, an award-winning a cappella group that sings rousing renditions of doo-wop, soul, traditional gospel and popular music. The choir consists of men and women who have proudly served in the United States military and then became homeless. The New Directions facility gave them hope, direction and an outlet in which to share their talents. They have been featured on America’s Got Talent, NBC Nightly News and E! Entertainment Television; they also performed at the Democratic National Convention and for members of the United State Congress. This uplifting group puts on a show that all ages will enjoy!
