Saving Abel To Play Guantanamo Bay

(EMI) USO have announced that Saving Abel will make a trip to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, on June 23-26 to visit and perform for members of our Armed Forces and their families.

Over the past several months the quintet has toured extensively across the U.S. as well as touched down in Kuwait and Iraq as part of a USO tour. The band also visited and performed a USO show in the middle of the Pacific Ocean aboard the USS Carl Vinson as the vessel returned from Haiti and a three-month deployment at sea.

Most recently, the band played a free concert for the troops at Fort Carson as part of their 'Miss America' tour. This visit will mark the band's third USO tour.

The band continues to perform selfless acts by aiding those in need. Lead singer Jared Weeks recently spent the day performing at THE VOICE at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, on June 9th. Jared recorded a segment with THE VOICE and spent time visiting with and performing for sick children. Provided by the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, the mix/media station in pediatric hospitals aims to contribute positively to the healing process for children and their families during their stay. The first center is located in the lobby of Children's at Egleston and is also linked to Children's at Hughes Spalding and Children's at Scottish Rite. Previous guests include Kelli Pickler and Big Time Rush.

Saving Abel's latest album, MISS AMERICA is the follow up to their gold-certified self-titled debut. Their latest single "Miss America" is currently in the top 20 at both Rock and Active Rock. Of their six charted songs, it is their best debut at the format. Watch as they salute American troops overseas in their new "Miss America" music video here.
