The 82nd Airborne Division’s “All-American” Chorus, based out of Fort Bragg, N.C., will sing the National Anthem prior to the 61st annual DAYTONA 500, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race scheduled for Feb. 17 at Daytona International Speedway (TV – FOX; Radio – MRN Radio, SiriusXM).
Hailing from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, the All-American Chorus has been serving as musical ambassadors for the 82nd Airborne Division for over 55 years. They previously sung the National Anthem for the 2016 DAYTONA 500.
Appearing in their maroon berets, ascots, and Army combat boots, they represent the finest paratroopers in the Airborne Division. The All-American Chorus performs over 200 missions annually from public sporting events to the anniversary of D-Day in Normandy, France. Their mission is to provide musical support across the spectrum of military operations, foster the support of the American people, and enhance awareness of the 82nd Airborne Division and the U.S. Army through public performances throughout the continental United States.
