Wilson, whose latest album “Charlie, Last Name Wilson” was certified gold, is returning to the war torn region for the fourth time in the past three years.
The former lead singer of The Gap Band who is now a solo artist, will be performing for five dates in Kuwait with back up singers and a full band.
Apparently, Wilson wants to celebrate with the troops after President Obama announced that the U. S. will be withdrawing military personnel from the region, officially signaling the end of the war in Iraq.
“I can’t wait to get back and have a real party with our troops,” Wilson told AllHipHop.com in a statement.
“It’s an honor to be part of the welcome home celebration. We owe them and their families a debt of gratitude for the sacrifices they have made to protect our country.”
“You Dropped a Bomb on Me” was one of the Gap Band’s biggest hits—and let’s be thankful that Iraqi bombs will no longer be dropping on our troops.
