Veteran Feeling Blessed

National Veterans Creative Arts Festival

Joshua Moreaux, performer

"It's a gift and it could be gone tomorrow" said Joshua Moreaux, an Air Force Veteran, of his musical talent. His beautiful voice placed him first nationally as a soloist in this year's and last year's competition.

A native of Louisiana who now resides in Massachusetts, Moreaux has been singing since the tenth grade, coaxed into it by his cousins. His talents earned him a scholarship to college, but finances prevented him from graduating and he joined the Air Force. While on active duty he auditioned for "Tops In Blue," an Air Force Vegas-style singing group, and he made it into the group. A classically trained opera singer, Joshua spent three years touring with this group expanding his musical horizons.

Upon discharge from the military, Moreaux noticed a sign for the Creative Arts Festival at his local VA, The Edith Nourse Rogers VA Medical Center in Bedford, Mass. He entered the local competition as a solo singer, and the rest as they say is history. This is Joshua's second Creative Arts Festival and he is thrilled to be here among so many talented Veterans.

"This is such an awesome opportunity. How many people ever get the opportunity to do something like this? I feel blessed." Everyone will get to hear Moreaux’s fabulous voice when he performs the song "Tomorrow" at the Stage Show.
