Song selections had to be chosen from movie soundtracks, and the songs featured tonight covered six decades of history.
Megan Watts brought tears to the eyes of many audience members as she told the crowd that her dad and soldiers deployed with him were watching her performance tonight. Cameras videoing the event were turned so the servicemen could see the crowd as they cheered the soldiers and communicated their appreciation.
