Danika Portz's "Armed Forces Send Off Show" With Jared Rogers says
Nashville based singer/songwriter, Danika Portz, is gearing up to headline her second 2+ week tour of US military bases in Southwest Asia with Armed Forces Entertainment. In addition, Portz will be releasing a single titled "My Superhero," in support of the tour. The song, which was written by Portz and co-writer, Steve Mitchell, drew on experiences from Portz’s first tour with AFE last year.

“I met a young soldier while on tour last year and he had just received a phone call that his wife, who was back in the States, was about to deliver their first child. And it just hit me - he wasn't going to be there. Their lives, and the lives of their families back home, keep moving forward. They miss birthdays, weddings, funerals, their kids learning how to ride a bike or losing their first tooth. You can't put a price on that. You can't get that back. That is what we tried to capture in this song."

Proceeds from "My Superhero" will go to the No Excuses Charitable Fund created by wounded veteran and motivational speaker, Noah Galloway, who lost both his left arm and leg during the Iraq War. The former Dancing With The Starscontestant currently stars as a team leader on the new Fox reality TV show, American Grit. The No Excuses Charitable Fund raises money and awareness for organizations that support fitness, wellness and inspire others to enlist healthy habits in their daily lives. The Fund is currently providing resources to the YMCA of Alabaster, AL, Operation Enduring Warrior, and Homes for Our Troops.

To kickstart this partnership, South, located at 1524 Demonbreun Street in Nashville, will be hosting a send-off show for Portz and her band on Friday, May 6th at 7 pm, with Jared Rogers to open. The show is free of charge; South will be accepting donations and has agreed to donate 10% of all sales between 7 and 10:30 pm to the No Excuses Charitable Fund. Show presented by Ashlevans Entertainment.
