When it comes to honoring the military personnel who serve our country both at home and around the world, there are few better tributes than a patriotic song being performed in their honor.
And when it comes to delivering that tribute, there are few bands more qualified or appropriate for the task than the U.S. Navy Band, which recently performed their rendition of ‘For Freedom.’
The song looks at the preparations a soldier must make when going out to serve their country and the sacrifices that they make. It also astutely examines the sacrifices that military families make every day.
That component of the song is fascinating and adds a new layer to our perception of military service. The men and women who wear the uniform are not the only ones making incredible sacrifices – their families are, too.
The song lyrics are touching and beautiful, and they are delivered with grace and style by the talented U.S. Navy Band. The full orchestra provides a rich and steady background, and the four lead singers are exceptional.
Together, they produce the quality of music that is fitting for a tribute. The singers were sincere and heartfelt in their delivery and watching them you know that they both understand and closely identify with the words.
From start to finish, the U.S. Navy Band delivered a masterclass in performance with their rendition of ‘For Freedom.’ It is truly a song that will stand the test of time.
