Operation Rising Star is an individual vocal competition that helps demonstrate the Army’s commitment to high-quality programs that support readiness and resilience.
Now in its 11th year, Operation Rising Star is a productive platform where the Army’s best vocal performers exemplify part of what it means to be a Soldier for Life. It’s a chance for Active Duty Service Members and their Families to shoot for stardom and prepare for opportunities outside of Military service.
Operation Rising Star is part of the Installation Management Command’s Army Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation’s (MWR) Army Entertainment Division. It’s just one way to help improve morale and generate revenue to fund other critical programs and resources for our Military Family that has endured years of war and selfless service for our country.
For the 2015 competition, 12 of the best performers will rise through the ranks from auditions at 22 garrisons and through online submissions. The finalists will show us their best during a series of live performances starting November 29, 2015, ending with the grand finale airing December 5, 2015.
