This time he was invited by Armed Forces Entertainment to put together a 90 minute show. So he invited David Archuleta and Jason Hewlett to join him in "An Evening of Music, Comedy and Motivational Theater."
The format is a variety show where Dan shares one of his world famous stories from the Chicken Soup For The Soul book series, that sets up a song performed by David Archuleta, followed by comic relief in a five minute bit by Jason Hewlett.
There are messages throughout, dealing with suicide prevention, divorce prevention and resiliency issues.
David's song list includes "Bridge Over Troubled Water", "Take Me Home" and John Lennon's "Imagine", mixed with his own pop hit "Crush" and more!
Jason Hewlett pulls the funniest faces and impersonates Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Adell, among others.
They leave on July 8 and perform for our combat troops 18 times on bases throughout Afghanistan, and in Kuwait, Bahrain, Ethiopia and Djbouti.
