Grammy nominated Jive Records recording artist Charlie Wilson is set to make his third trip to Iraq and Kuwait to perform for United States Troops in the region in mid-February, 2011. “I performed for the troops in 2009 and 2010 and found it to be one of the most rewarding experiences in my career,” stated Wilson.  “It is a privilege to go and bring a little bit of home and love to the young men and women in our armed forces who honor us with their dedication.”

In addition to performing concerts during his tour, Wilson has created a microsite and is inviting the public to post messages of love and support to the troops.  “Our troops are away from home and family and I thought this would be a good way to bring them personal messages from home.  You can leave a message for a loved one serving our country or just a message of thanks for all the sacrifices our troops are making for our country.  It’s important that we let them know that we respect and support them”

The public can log onto to post their messages.  Wilson will be sharing these messages with the troops at each base he visits.

Wilson is taking time away from his U.S. tour schedule and the promotion of his recently released CD, Just Charlie, which includes the #1 hit single You Are (8 weeks at number one on the Billboard Urban Adult Contemporary Chart).
