In an effort to support America’s military, Veterans and their families, Queen Latifah has gifted her rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, sung during the 2015 NBA All Star game, to Fisher House Foundation.

“Our military and their families sacrifice for us every day, often in ways we can’t even imagine,” said Queen Latifah. “I’m honored to give back through an organization that I admire that has been supporting the military and Veterans for the past 25 years – Fisher House Foundation. The homes that they build at military and Veterans’ hospitals have served hundreds of thousands of families, allowing them to be near their loved ones while healing in nearby Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs medical centers.”

Fisher House Foundation has made the song available to the public on iTunes, Google Play and other on-line outlets. Thanks to Queen Latifah, all the proceeds will benefit military families through the Foundation’s programs. Additionally, last Veterans Day, she gave a shout out for the Hero Miles program on her nationwide talk show. The Hero Miles program uses donated frequent flyer miles to bring family members to the bedside of injured service members.

“We are so grateful for this unique opportunity provided to us,” said Ken Fisher, Chairman and CEO of Fisher House Foundation. “Queen Latifah is a talented actress, and beautiful international model – not to mention a great singer. This is not only an honor for us, but also a sincere way to say thank you to our country’s military, Veterans and their families.”

The Star Spangled Banner, sung by Queen Latifah, is available for digital download on iTunes, Google Play, and streaming services.
