National Soldier Support group Soldiers Angels pair with recording artist Shawn Hlookoff to promote moving Video for Memorial Day
February 27, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsPasadena, CA March 1, 2006 - Soldiers’ Angels and Singer-Songwriter, Shawn Hlookoff (currently under major label consideration) have produced a moving music video and song "Soldier" dedicated to honoring the men and women of our Armed Forces in a respectful manner. The artist and Soldiers’ Angels are donating this DVD and song for free (download) to every school, organization and service member in the country for use as a Memorial Day tribute and learning tool. While reaching out to each school and teacher in an effort to get to speak to our nation's educators and students the goal is to donate this contemporary DVD as a new vision for our schools’ Memorial Day ceremonies.
Entitled "Soldier", the video and song is a tribute to our military personnel and highlights the sacrifices our service members and their families willingly make. The song and video squarely tackle the personal issues that Armed Forces members and their families face each and everyday.
This "staggeringly beautiful" tribute to the service members, first generated attention when a Canadian version was produced for Canada’s Remembrance Day. Over 4000 Canadian schools downloaded the DVD for use in their ceremonies and class projects. To date, 1000's of American teachers and students have downloaded the files for use as a Memorial Day video tribute, class project and many other projects.
"I feel very strongly about this issue" states the 22 year old Hlookoff (pron Ha-Loo-Koff) "Since releasing this song I have had hundreds of families write to me and ask if they can use it for their son’s or daughter’s memorial service. I have been blown away and am deeply touched".
Soldiers’ Angels Founder, Patti Patton-Bader was immediately struck by the emotionally charged song. "When Shawn approached us for help in getting the word out, we were more than excited". Soldiers’ Angels feel that this contemporary vision and voice for Memorial Day is an ideal way to reach today's students and other organizations in a way few things can."
As a result of hundreds of ongoing requests from educators across the country, Hlookoff and Soldiers’ Angels have donated unlimited free downloads of "Soldier" video and song and the free usage of this contemporary tribute to every school in the country. The downloads can be accessed at www.SoldiersAngels.org. For more information on Shawn Hlookoff please visit www.hlookoff.com.
