CAPITOL NASHVILLE's KEITH URBAN donated $300,000 to the NAVY SEAL FOUNDATION (NSF) this past SATURDAY (9/28) at his show in SAN DIEGO. The donation represents URBAN's share of artist and publishing royalties earned from his song "For You," which was written for the motion picture "ACT OF VALOR."
“The NAVY SEAL FOUNDATION is humbled by KEITH’s generosity and support of our community and its families," said NSF CEO ROBIN KING. "His generous donation will help fund resiliency retreats for 120 SEALs and their families, fund the opportunity for over 500 NAVAL SPECIAL WARFARE children to attend SUMMER camp in 2014, where they’ll learn the importance of teamwork, communication, cooperation, goal setting and overcoming adversity.”
“I have a deep appreciation for the special bond that all of these families feel towards each other and for the commitment that they have made to all of us,” said URBAN. “The NSF reminds us to acknowledge the importance and sacrifice that is made each and every day by those serving ‘down range’ as well as their loving families.”
