Working with Operation Support our Troops Illinois, a nonprofit volunteer-based organization, Illinois Congressman Mark Kirk and students filled holiday care packages for troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, with goods including 1,000 CDs of “SO BRAVE” donated by co-writer Angela Lashley. “As we celebrate the holidays with those we love most, it is important to keep our men and women serving overseas in our thoughts and prayers,” said Congressman Kirk during the special event.
SO BRAVE has been chosen for projects currently in production and has been recorded by others for release.
While Jonathan has been to war, Angela’s experiences during her two years as a soldier’s mother, have inspired the writing of songs resulting in the CD SOLDIERS’ MOMS, featuring SO BRAVE. The album was recently launched with the help of Ivy Music International on Music Row in Nashville.
