With the special to be televised on Sunday, December 5 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on VH1, Katy Perry, Keri Hilson and Jennifer Nettles teamed up in uniform to run through their number while Nicki Minaj also took her turn on stage.
Commenting on the event, USO President Sloan Gibson said, “The USO is thrilled to be partnering with VH1 and honored to be a part of delivering such an uplifting event to our nation’s troops. The holidays are especially tough for our men and women in uniform and their families, and having the opportunity to touch so many troops stationed around the world at a time of year that matters most lets them know that America still cares about their welfare. There is no better time to celebrate our armed forces and support their efforts than now.”
Meanwhile, Col. Frank Richie, Commanding Officer of MCAS Miramar, added, “Next to MCAS Miramar’s much celebrated annual air show, this VH1 Divas USO concert is our biggest and most anticipated event of the year. Hosting events like this helps boost troop morale and unites military families, which is critical to our mission. We thank both VH1 and the USO for bringing this event to our doorstep.”
