Wounded soldiers who participate in music rehabilitation at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center were delighted to perform alongside singer/songwriter Aaron Neville on “The Colbert Report” Wednesday evening.
MusiCorps, which “helps wounded warriors play music and recover their lives,” published the following statement on its Facebook page before The MusiCorps Wounded Warrior Band debuted alongside R&B great Neville:
Almost everything we do is in private – one on one sessions helping wounded warriors learn to play an instrument or relearn to play one following a devastating injury. So it is particularly gratifying when we are able to share our work with others through performances of the MusiCorps Wounded Warrior Band.
