Jay Z And Beyoncé Surprise U.S. Troops On New Year’s Eve With A Special Message
On New Year's Eve, Jay Z and Beyoncé showed their support and appreciation for our US troop with a special screening of their On The Run HBO Special and a heartfelt message from Bey. Thousands of troops stationed in Kuwait and Afghanistan attended the exclusive viewing of the show.
"I just want to say a big thank you to our troops for everything you do to keep our country safe," said Beyoncé in a message that played during a USO countdown to 2015. "We all sleep better at night knowing that you guys are protecting us, and we're filled with gratitude."
Music's royal couple had one of the highest grossing tours of 2014, averaging more than $100 million in ticket sales and selling out one of the largest stadiums in Paris.
According to a USO press release, SSGT Ferguson was very grateful for the show. "Watching the On the Run concert made me forget I was in Afghanistan for the holidays ... thank you," said SSGT Ferguson who is stationed at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.
