Jessica Simpson Invited By First Lady To Sing For American Military Families

Jessica Simpson thank you

Jessica Simpson has always been a huge supporter of American troops, but after a personal invitation from First Lady Michelle Obama, she's getting the opportunity to sing about it!

The 30-year-old singer will perform for military families on April 13 at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, during a baseball game between the Colorado Rockies and New York Mets.

Jessica sounds very excited and gracious for the chance to give back to the families of America's military, explaining:

"[The First Lady] asked me to sing for the troops. That's a huge honor for me. Just to be there and show my support and say thank you."

The event is part of Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden's national two-day tour, which a statement says is designed to:

"highlight the work of Americans who have answered the call to serve our military families to showcase ways all Americans can serve them, from teachers and business leaders, to neighbors and volunteers."

During the tour, the Presidential wives will travel to Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, San Antonio, Texas, and Columbus, Ohio as well.

Sounds like an awesome way to give back to those families who have already given so much to our country! We're sure Jessica will do great!

Dr. Jill Biden To Guest Star On Army Wives!

Filed under: TV NewsPolitik

You know, we are starting to see what people are getting at when they accuse this administration of over-exposure.

Vice President Joe Biden's wife, Dr. Jill Biden, will be playing herself in an upcoming episode of Army Wives, alongside some real-life wives of soldiers.

Dr. Biden's episode will feature the first lady visiting the fictional Fort Marshall to discuss that many hardships facing military families. While on set, she told the crowd:

"I'm proud to be here today as a second lady, but I'm even more proud to be here as a military mom..Although only one percent of Americans are fighting our wars today, we need 100 percent of Americans to support them and their families."

The show will air on August 8th, but a special screening will happen on Thursday at Fort Belvoir in Virginia for the troops.

It's nice to see the second lady get involved in the community, but maybe she could spend more time visiting actual bases instead of ficitional ones. Just wondering what this appearance will actually do for the families with loved ones in Iraq.
