Master sergeant Caleb Bernard Green III is a solo vocalist with the United States Army Band. An accomplished performer, particularly of the US national anthem, Green is often called upon to sing at important sporting events, diplomatic functions and military ceremonies. Green and former military member, Bob McDonald are the primary national anthem singers for the Washington Capitals. His most notable anthem performance was at the 2009 "We Are One" presidential inauguration concert at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.. Prior to this his most notable outing was onstage in the TNT production "Christmas in Washington 2008", in which he sang "O Holy Night".[1][2] He is also a member of Voices of Service, an accapalla group formed by him and three other military members to provide music therapy to ex-military with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Currently the group is into the semifinals of America's Got Talent, season 14 for a shot to win 1 million dollars and to headline a Las Vegas show.[3][4]
