In what has quickly become a tradition in its own right, the NATIONAL MEMORIAL DAY CONCERT welcomes St. Helena Island native and newly crowned AMERICAN IDOL winner, Candice Glover, when she graces the stage at the U.S. Capitol this Memorial Day weekend.  Glover will perform the “National Anthem,” honoring the service and sacrifice of all our men and women in uniform, their families at home and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  The concert will air live from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol, Sunday, May 26, 2013 from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m. on ETV.

"For three years I sang the ‘National Anthem’ for marine graduates' families at a meet and greet program,” said Glover.   “I'm so excited that I can graduate from that and sing the ‘National Anthem’ at the Capitol.  It means so much to me."

The multi award-winning program will be co-hosted for the eighth year by Tony Award-winner Joe Mantegna (CRIMINAL MINDS) and Emmy Award-winner Gary Sinise (CSI:NEW YORK), two acclaimed actors who have dedicated themselves to veterans causes and supporting our troops in active service.  In addition to Glover, the all-star line-up also includes: distinguished American leader Colin L. Powell USA (Ret.); two-time Golden Globe award-winning actor Ed Harris; DANCING WITH THE STARS finalist and classical cross-over artist Katherine Jenkins; singer-songwriter and THE VOICE finalist Chris Mann; and acclaimed Tony award-winning tenor Alfie Boe; in performance with the National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of top pops conductor Jack Everly.
