Active members of the military, veterans and their families will be honored over Thanksgiving weekend during America Salutes You, a star-studded musical spectacular asking viewers for their financial support of programs that assist military communities across the country.

Concert performers include pop legend Cyndi Lauper, multi -platinum selling singer/songwriter Gavin DeGraw, country music legend Wanda Jackson, rapper Hoodie Allen, Gospel Grammy winner CeCe Winans, world-renowned tenor Anthony Kearns, and bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs.

Less than 1% of our population serves to make the world safe for the rest of us. We owe them a huge debt, and they have many needs when they return including: healthcare, mental health services, housing, education, jobs and finding a career to support their families, legal services, financial readiness and much more.

The concert will air nationally on Tribune Broadcasting, Sinclair Broadcast Group, Graham Media Group Nexstar and Ion stations. Visit americasalutesyou.org for local listings.

To help support our veterans, service members and their families, donations will be raised during the multi-platform broadcast special. All donations will go to the America Salutes You Campaign, a McCormick Foundation Fund. All fundraising costs are covered by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation. America Salutes You and sponsors covered production expenses. For a full list of sponsors, visit americasalutesyou.org.

All funds raised will be granted to non-profit organizations helping veterans, service members and their families across the country including: Give An Hour, ThanksUSA, Easter Seals Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services, the Bob Woodruff Foundation, TAPS, Snowball Express, Illinois Joining Forces and the Honor Flight Network.
