R&B singer/songwriter Lil’ Mo will depart on her first USO tour to entertain service men and women in U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern, Germany, May 11, 2006. This tour is co-sponsored by the Installation Management Agency, Europe’s Morale Welfare and Recreation Office. In 2002, Lil’ Mo also found success as a radio personality. On Baltimore’s WXYV, she hosted the market’s highest-rated afternoon drive radio show. Her credits also include guest-hosting for a variety of New York disc jockeys. Mo, however, decided to return to her first love, singing. She is working towards her next independent album scheduled for release in late 2006. USO celebrity entertainment has played an essential role in serving U.S. troops, providing much needed recreational opportunities to troops. Since 1941, the USO has provided entertainment to service members during times of peace and conflict all over the world. What started out as a way to bring entertainment to the troops became the single greatest entertainment enterprise in show business history. Entertainers have given selflessly of their time and talents traveling to foreign countries and often facing the same dangers as service members. With a handshake, signed autograph or simple conversation, entertainers are conveying the thanks of a grateful nation. Some performers who have participated in recent USO tours include Master P and Lil’ Romeo, Gary Sinise, Chely Wright, Montgomery Gentry and La Mafia. Tours are sponsored by AT&T, Inc., the Official Telecommunications Sponsor of USO entertainment tours.
