In 2012, Keith Urban was asked to write a song for Act of Valor, a movie based on real-life events of Navy SEALS. During concert this week, Urban had the opportunity to perform the song during the VetsAid concert in Fairfax, Virginia.
Luckily, the entire performance was recorded thanks to Debbie Grafton. It all started after Urban had called a former SEAL on stage. The pair exchanged pleasantries before the SEAL thanked Keith for all he does for veterans and their families.
“Keith, I really appreciate all you guys doing this stuff for our veterans, for all of us, but, of course, it’s all for our families,” the SEAL said as he pointed out his family in the crowd. “So my wife, my sister-in-law, my brother-in-law’s a vet as well, so we do it for them as well.”
Urban, obviously touched by the SEAL’s words, switched up his set list by inserting his song “For You” from the Act of Valor movie.
“We hadn’t planned on doing this, but it seems the perfect song for tonight,” Keith said as he grabbed his acoustic guitar. He then told the moving story behind the song.
