82ND AIRBORNE CHORUS
- Hometown: Fort Liberty, North Carolina
Based in Fort Liberty, North Carolina, the 82nd Airborne Division All-American Chorus represents the 19,000 soldiers who serve in the 82nd Airborne. The Airborne Division specializes in forcible entry operations, during which soldiers parachute into areas to make way for further military operations. The chorus' mission is to provide music to Fort Liberty and the local area by "telling the Army story" in support of soldiers and their families, the local community, recruiting initiatives and music education programs. The group has performed around the country, including an appearance on NBC's "TODAY." A video of the group singing an a cappella tune while waiting for a routine jump went viral in 2022, thrusting the soldiers into the spotlight. The Army hopes that spotlight will continue to shine on "AGT."
