The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee has announced that the American Military Spouses Choir will perform at the Bradley Prizes ceremony on June 18, 2014, at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.

The American Military Spouses Choir, known as the "Force Behind the Force," will help celebrate the 2014 Bradley Prize recipients:  Georgetown University law professor Randy E. Barnett; Goldwater Institute president Darcy Olsen; Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley A. Strassel; and Wall Street Journal drama critic and Commentary critic-at-large Terry Teachout.  Each award carries a stipend of $250,000.

Members of the American Military Spouses Choir are all married to active-duty soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and National Guard members.  With their spouses and families, they are stationed all over the world, yet overcome distance and other difficulties to practice and perform for their country.  The choir first came together through the non-profit Center for American Music Opportunities (CAMMO).

Since the choir’s first performance in 2012, it has performed in many venues, including the home of the vice president and on the hit NBC television series America’s Got Talent.

"We are thrilled to have the American Military Spouses Choir perform at the Bradley Prizes this year," said Michael W. Grebe, president and chief executive officer of the Bradley Foundation.  "The talent and dedication of Choir members to our country align perfectly with the mission of the Bradley Foundation and the 2014 Bradley Prize honorees."
