Rock star's album benefits Military

READ MORE: Rock star's album benefits Military

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- You may know rocker John Parr best from his hits in the '80s, but he's back on the scene today as he promotes a new album in support of those fighting for freedom.

Parr's own father was in the Royal Navy, so he knows the struggles that come with being a military family.

His new album, The Mission, outlines those stories through the eyes of children, spouses and the ones on the front lines. Proceeds from the emotional songs benefit the USO, Military Families and USA Cares.

According to Parr, "It is about raising awareness and funds for Military men and women as they make the difficult transition back into ordinary life."

He'll be signing album covers at the Wal-Mart off Market Street today from 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Watch his live interview with Good Morning Carolina anchor Ashley Jacobs and hear him sing.
