New Directions Veterans Choir Rocks America's Got Talent

"It's okay for a warrior to seek help."

America's Got Talent may have enjoyed a Susan Boyle moment with this week's powerful debut by  New Directions Choir.

Comprised of formerly homeless sailors, soldiers, airmen and Marines, the choir was formed at the New Directions center in Los Angeles, an organization that provides support services to military veterans struggling with homelessness, substance abuse, mental illness and post-traumatic stress.

Their awesome performance suggests that New Directions has what it takes to win the competition and we'll keep up with their appearances as the show airs this summer.

This 2006 documentary gives some more background on the group.
