March 18, Jaci Velasquez spent her morning entertaining President Bush and the troops of the 101st. President Bush came to Fort Campbell to welcome home the heroes as all of the troops from the 101st have returned home. This gathering brought around 20,000 people together, celebrating the one year anniversary of the War in Iraq.
Jaci sang “God Bless America”, “God Loves You”, and “Con Tu Amor,”
This is the sixth White House function that Velasquez has performed- the first was President George Bush Sr. when she was 12 years of age and today was the fifth time for President George W. Bush.
Joining Velasquez was country star Darryl Worley and others.
Velasquez states, "It was an honor once again to sing for President Bush and the troops of the 101st. Their fight against terrorism and for America's freedom makes me proud to be an American!"
