Paris Hilton signs on as celeb ambassador for `Songs For Soldiers`

New York: Hotel heiress Paris Hilton has signed up as a Celebrity Ambassador for a new USO initiative `Songs For Soldiers`.

Mora than a hundred-uniformed US sailors are readying up to party with Hilton during New York`s Fleet Week ahead of the Memorial Day weekend.

According to Pop Tarts, Hilton has decided to step up as an official "celebrity ambassador" for the USO`s new initiative, "Song For Soldiers," reports Fox News.

"I`m always looking for ways I can use my voice as a celebrity and I think there is nothing more worthwhile and patriotic than supporting our troops. When I first heard about the Songs for Soldiers initiative it immediately touched my heart," Hilton told Pop Tarts.

"It`s so easy to take for granted our freedom and happiness and forget about those who are endangering their lives every day to make it possible. Songs for Soldiers is a simple way to show you care," she added.

"I would love to visit our troops! I hope that once we meet this goal I can personally be a part of the trip overseas to deliver these players into the hands of the troops. I would find that very rewarding, it is something I have always wanted to do," Hilton further said.

"Paris continues a long standing tradition of female A-list stars supporting initiatives for our troops a la Betty Grable, Lena Horne, Dinah Shore and, of course, Marilyn Monroe," the Songs for Soldiers creator, Tom Wiggins, said.

"But more than that, she is a trend setter who can lead a young generation of patriots toward new ways to support our Troops," he added. (ANI)
