WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Sep 22, 2016) - In Winter 2016, Altavoz Entertainment, Inc. (OTC PINK: AVOZ) will release Dodge Citizen's "Service Connected Album Project." This weekend, Altavoz is honoring Dodge Citizen himself, on the occasion of the unveiling of an exhibit based on him to be permanently displayed at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC), which opens this weekend on the National Mall in Washington, DC on Saturday. Dodge Citizen's uniforms, boots, and a tactical mission map of the Iraqi city of Fallujah that he donated from his time in combat will be permanently exhibited on the 3rd Floor, Communities Galleries, in the "Stirrings of Change to a Colorblind Military," portion of the museum. This exhibit can be visited when the new museum opens for the first time on September 24.
"When I saw my uniform as part of the exhibit at the NMAAHC, it was overwhelming. It is an extraordinary testament to the sacrifice and dedication of those of us who served. Also, it's an unbelievable honor to be representing my fellow military brothers and sisters," said Dodge Citizen (Andre Jones), President, Dodge City Records. "To continue this recognition of service, I wrote and composed my upcoming album, the 'Service Connected Album Project,' which is a musical journey as well as an open love-letter testifying to the bonds of friendship, sacrifice, kinship and loyalty that are forged through uniformed service and the experiences of combat."
"Dodge's album release is part of Altavoz's record deal opportunity for veterans and members of the U.S. military who make music via our Veterans Music Distribution Deal -- and there are a lot of them!" said Altavoz CEO Nelson Jacobsen.
